For over five years, Allied Health Services Medford has provided Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for opioid addicts in Medford, Oregon. A large city in Southwest Oregon, Medford is just north of the California border. Allied Medford offers treatment plans using methadone, Suboxone or Subutex and requires clients to participate in both group and individual therapy while receiving their medication doses. Allied Medford is a member of the Acadia treatment network, which operates a number of outpatient and residential facilities throughout the United States and United Kingdom.
Treatment and Staff
Allied Medford works with adults only, and clients must have been addicted to opiates for at least one year. Clients on parole or probation must have permission from their officer to participate in MAT. During a three- to four-hour assessment, clients and Allied Medford’s treatment team decide which course of MAT best suits their recovery needs: methadone, Suboxone or Subutex. Clients then receive a dosing schedule which includes a plan for applying for take-home doses once the client has successfully participated in several weeks of treatment.
Clients must attend group therapy twice a week for the first 30 days of treatment. After this initial period of time, they must attend at least one group each week for as long as they’re in treatment. Clients must also meet with a counselor for one-on-one sessions a minimum of twice a month for the first month of treatment and then at least once a month after that.
Group therapy uses CBT to help clients develop coping skills and handle triggers. Groups are offered Monday through Friday and are led by addiction counselors with the CADC credential. Groups topics include Recovery Process, cannabis cessation, tapering and loss and grief.
Counselors address co-occurring disorders in individual and group therapy but refer clients in need of comprehensive dual diagnosis support to nearby mental health clinics. Clients are also encouraged to attend peer support meetings while in treatment, such as 12-step or SMART Recovery.
Allied Medford hopes that all of its clients will eventually not need MAT, and it works with them to create a treatment plan that culminates in tapering. However, clients are not pressured to taper on any set time-line.
After clients have completed MAT, they’re encouraged to schedule check-in or regular sessions with their primary counselor for aftercare.
Allied Health Services Medford has provided clients with MAT for opiate addiction combined with traditional evidence-based therapy for a well-rounded program. With several weekly therapy groups that address issues such as tapering and handling grief, Allied Health Services Medford offers clients a community of support and education as they work towards sobriety.
