Medication Assisted Programs
The Federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) states that Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) is often a chronic illness requiring ongoing communication among patients and providers to assure that patients fully benefit from both pharmacotherapy and psychosocial treatment and support. “Supportive counseling environments for clients who take OUD medication can promote treatment and help build recovery foundations”.
Outpatient Withdrawal Management
Our outpatient withdrawal management program is our stabilization program. The program is designed to help patients stabilize from opioid withdrawals, so that they can decide if they want to taper off of opiates in a safe and humane way, or continue medication assisted treatment in a maintenance setting with individual and group counseling support.
Outpatient Methadone Maintenance
The outpatient Methadone Maintenance Program is a longer term medication assisted treatment program using methadone. Marin Treatment Center uses State and Federal regulations and guidelines to manage its program. Patients must meet specific admission criteria for admission by either having a documented history of opioid use disorder treatment for the last 12-months, be pregnant and opiate dependent, or have a life threatening condition and opiate addicted. This program is designed for patients that have stabilized from opioid withdrawal and are seeking longer term medication assisted treatment combined with counseling therapy for addiction.
Outpatient Buprenorphine Maintenance
The outpatient Buprenorphine Maintenance Program is an alternative medication assisted treatment program available to people diagnosed with opioid use disorders. Buprenorphine is well suited for those who do not qualify for our methadone maintenance program or have more mild to moderate addiction severity. The outpatient Buprenorphine Maintenance Program also offers individual and group counseling therapy for addiction.
Pain and Addiction
Pain and opioid addiction can be complex, as not all patients prescribed opioid pain medications are diagnosed with an Opioid Use Disorder diagnosis. Marin Treatment Center can only treat patients who have an Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) diagnosis. In many cases, and often, pain patients can have an opioid use disorder diagnosis concurrently. Our medical and clinical staff can assess you and can properly diagnose your medical condition. We will work with primary care doctors and medical providers to help make a determination and find effective treatment solutions, so that you can manage both your pain and addiction more comfortably.
