SMA Healthcare is pleased to announce that it is now offering Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) services in Flagler County. MAT services are offered through the outpatient center at the Vince Carter Sanctuary, located at 301 Justice Lane, Bunnell, FL 32110.
“SMA Healthcare is committed to expanding its services to ensure it is meeting the needs of the community,” said COO Rhonda Harvey. “The addition of MAT in Flagler County will help provide necessary treatment and give the citizens of this county another avenue toward recovery.”
The MAT program is designed to assist adults with opioid use disorders and/or alcohol use disorders, in an outpatient setting. MAT aids in helping clients in their substance use recovery by providing medication assistance in combination with group and individual therapy, case management and peer support. The medications offered by this program are buprenorphine, suboxone, and vivitrol.
Flagler County will offer MAT once a week, on Wednesdays, and will increase as the demand for the service increases.
