Pathways is partnering with UCS Healthcare to provide Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) at Pathways’ Waterloo (3362 University Avenue) location. UCS Healthcare provides the medication piece of the treatment and Pathways provides the counseling services. MAT can help patients recover from addictions, including opioids or alcohol, through individualized treatment programs offering a combination of medication and counseling. This combination creates a greater opportunity for patients to be successful in their long-term recovery.
In the MAT program a variety of medications are used for alcohol or opioid abuse.
Pathways and UCS believe medication used in MAT to treat addiction is much like using medication for other illnesses. Reducing the cravings and withdrawal symptoms through MAT often allows patients the ability to lead a more productive life – working, spending time with family and friends, performing the tasks of daily life – while engaging in counseling to address the patients’ needs as they move toward recovery.
