Health Care Resource Centers Westfield
HCRC Westfield is a medication-assisted treatment program that offers both methadone and buprenorphine treatment. Our dedicated team is here to support each and every one of our patients through their recovery. In addition to medication-assisted treatment, our center provides counseling services and other supportive services to help patients succeed.
MAT serves as the basis of our treatment services. Many of our patients have MAT-focused care plans that involve taking medicine to relieve withdrawal symptoms. With fewer symptoms, the patient can focus on recovery services like therapy. We offer MAT programs that use methadone and buprenorphine.
Methadone has shown us decades of positive results in treating patients with opioid use disorder. With a doctor’s supervision, you can get relief from severe symptoms through methadone-based MAT. At the start of your methadone MAT program, you’ll come to our clinic every day to get your medicine. If you work in the morning, please ask us about our “worker’s window” hours that allow you to come in at an earlier time. After you reach benchmarks set by state and federal rules, you can take your medication at home.
If you have mild to moderate opioid use disorder symptoms, your doctor might recommend MAT with buprenorphine. You can take buprenorphine at home from the beginning of your program. During buprenorphine MAT, you’ll receive a prescription for your medicine and fill it at a pharmacy. Buprenorphine loses any euphoric effects at a certain amount, making it safer to take with less supervision.
Counseling acts as another essential part of a MAT program. At HCRC Westfield, we offer two kinds of opioid use disorder therapy:
Therapy can help you manage your opioid use disorder in everyday situations outside the clinic. Your individualized counseling services will give you the support you need to meet your recovery goals.
Other services at our clinic let you get more out of your opioid use disorder treatment. We can refer you to community organizations that offer assistance with housing, food and other necessities. Our case management services will also provide you with a case manager who coordinates the treatment you receive at our clinic.
