Substance Use Treatment Resources
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is an effective form of treatment in which a patient will, in addition to counseling, use medications that will curb withdrawal symptoms that can occur when somebody stops using opioids. Common medications to use during MAT are methadone, Naltrexone (common brands are Vivitrol or Reviva) and Buprenorphine (brands Buprenex or Butrans). To find a list of treatment providers in Illinois that provide MAT, visit the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA's) directory.
