Per the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of FDA-approved medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a clinically-driven, “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. MAT is often used to prevent or reduce opioid overdose by normalizing brain chemistry, blocking the euphoric effects of alcohol and opioids, and relieving physiological cravings. The aim of MAT is for patients to achieve stability, which is generally a year or more of continued participation and compliance with treatment recommendation. In addition to the FDA-approved medications (either Methadone or Buprenorphine), patients receive individual treatment planning, urinalysis testing and referrals to community resources as needed.

  • Residential Treatment: Length of stay is generally 28 days, but can be tailored to satisfy individual client needs that incorporate education on the disease of addiction with individual, group and family counseling. Residential Treatment may be followed by SAIOP, Aftercare, or referral to an outside agency for long-term sober living environment. The cost of the program may be covered by Area funding, self-pay, and some Insurance companies. We are licensed for 36 bed capacity, and currently manage 24 for capacity.
  • Residential DWI: McLeod Center’s Residential DWI Program is a treatment alternative to incarceration for DWI charges. In consideration of substance use history and legal implications of the client’s DWI, the length of stay may be anywhere from 7 to 30 days. While clients are in the Residential DWI Program, they also have the option of completing a DWI Assessment with a state-certified DWI assessor for additional $100 fee.
