Medication Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder

Medication Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder

America is in the midst of one of its greatest drug crises. More than 800 Americans die from overdosing on opioids such as pain killers, heroin, and fentanyl every week. Clallam County is not immune to this crisis. But, there is good news and hope for local people struggling with addiction to opioids: medication treatment for opioid use disorder.

At North Olympic Healthcare Network we understand that people who struggle with addiction have an illness that may require long-term management. We're here to partner with you for a life of recovery and health through our Medication Treatment for Opioid Use Disorder program and other services.

You'll meet with one of our medical providers to discuss your concerns about your opioid use and your goals for treatment. Together you'll devise a plan that includes medication and counseling that fits your needs and lifestyle.

In most cases you'll then be given a prescription for Suboxone, the medication you will take at home to diminish cravings for opioids. You'll be scheduled for weekly visits with your provider (who will renew your prescription if all is progressing as planned) and most likely one of our behavioral health therapists. Your therapist will work with you on building helpful skills for recovery and vitality.

We want you to know you're not alone. In just the first several months of our MAT program we worked with more 200 people who struggle with opioid addiction. Seeking medical help is a strong step in the journey to health and vitality.
