About the Program
QBH’s MAT program is designed to incorporate the best practices as set forth by SAMHSA and the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT), as well as state and federal health services guidelines in regards to the management of consumers’ needs. The sustained recovery focus of QBH’s MAT program acknowledges that recovery is a long-term process of internal change in which progress occurs in stages.
The MAT program focuses on family support and involvement. The consumers are provided with a strong support network of peer support specialists and sponsors. This level of treatment requires components of group therapy and support groups like AA and NA, which provide a new, positive element of social change in the consumer’s life and facilitates long-term recovery.
Who is it for?
This program is for consumers who are maintaining wellness and recovery progress, but now need to address emotional/psychiatric and physical issues to help them sustain recovery movement and to build up resilience, including identifying, developing and utilizing natural supports. Medication may be an essential program element to help consumers who need assistance to maintain stabilization and control their symptoms, enhancing their receptivity to treatment. An effective medication regimen allows the consumer to be stable enough to participate in substance abuse treatment and make progress that leads to a more satisfying and productive lifestyle.
How can we help you?
In addition, providing access to services is a critical component and essential element of service delivery. QBH provides service hours that allow the maximum possible opportunity for the consumer to make initial contact with our MAT program, receive a timely initial evaluation, and be welcomed into our MAT program structure that is appropriate to the consumer’s needs. We also do outreach to educate the other community agencies about our services through involvement in health fairs, offering education in various ways to diverse populations within the community, and through staff’s involvement in various community organizations and committees which expands the visibility of our programs and increases referral potential. Access is also available through contracts with criminal justice and welfare systems and employers.
