Medication Assisted Therapy: Opioid Community Collaborative
Helping fight an American epidemic.
More than 130 people in the U.S. die per day from opioid-related drug overdoses. Davis Behavioral Health is working to curb these tragic losses of life and fight opioid use disorder (OUD).
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) combats OUD by utilizing medications with counseling and behavioral therapies.
Davis Behavioral Health, along with other Utah organizations, participates in the Opioid Community Collaborative. It’s a program to help those individuals misusing prescriptions or other opioids. We combine MAT with therapy services and recovery support to help those living with OUD overcome this destructive disorder.
The medications offered within this program include:
- Naltrexone—an office-based, non-addictive that blocks the effects of narcotics.
- Buprenorphine—an office-based medication that blocks narcotics while simultaneously reducing the risk of withdrawal.
- Naloxone—A potentially life-saving medication that reverses opioid overdose.
We provide compassionate and caring mental and behavioral health services to individuals and families in Davis County. Opioids tragically impact the lives of thousands of Utahns each day. And we’re doing our part by providing MAT and other behavioral health services to fight this American epidemic.
