At NORA, we lay the groundwork for lasting change however sometimes it takes more than therapy to initiate the transformation. Medication Assisted Treatment or M.A.T. is a treatment method for long term opiate addiction. The goal of the M.A.T. Program offered by NORA is to support an individual’s efforts to remain abstinent from opiates through the use of peer support, counseling, medication and case management services. We help individuals struggling with an opiate use disorder to achieve several goals:

Improve client chances of healing

Increased treatment retention

Prevent illegal opiate use

Teach client how to live productive lives once treatment ends

Treatment can be provided on an inpatient or outpatient level of care.
The two types of treatment are:

Suboxone

Vivitrol

Suboxone is administered orally, daily. Vivitrol is an injectable medication administered monthly. Use of Suboxone or Vivitrol in combination with comprehensive treatment services allows individuals to function effectively without intoxication, impairment, or fear of withdrawal symptoms. The philosophy of the program is one of compassion and care. Through our comprehensive services and peer support, we cater to your needs to live sober, feel included, understood, and connected.
