Behavioral Health

Behavioral Health provides patient’s the opportunity to consult with a professional Social Worker or Counselor.  This includes brief interventions and models which support fully integrated behavioral/primary care health staff. Patients receive high quality primary care with behavioral health services to help them cope with issues such as stress, depression, substance use disorders, and problems resulting from living with a chronic physical health condition. We strive to provide services to all patients using trauma sensitive approaches, acknowledging that we all come to this place with our own histories, experiences, and perspectives.

MAT services: Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) for Opioid Use Disorder.

“Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. Research shows that a combination of medication and therapy can successfully treat these disorders, and for some people struggling with addiction, MAT can help sustain recovery. Learn about many of the substance use disorders that MAT is designed to address.” From the SAMHSA website

Patients who have been identified or expressed interest in this program will be evaluated by a Behavioral Health Clinician to see if they meet eligibility requirements.  For more information on MAT services you may look at the SAMHSA website:
