MCHC provides a medication assistance treatment program for our patients who are struggling with opioid abuse issues and want to make changes in their life. A medical provider prescribes Suboxone or Subutex. MCHC uses a team approach for this program including the substance abuse providers, nursing, and medical assistant staff. Patients must agree to the requirements of the program to be eligible for this. Patients who struggle with severe substance abuse issues may need to be referred to a higher level of care. Patients deemed appropriate for the program and who wish to enroll when the maximum for the program is reached will be put on a waiting list.
