Medication Assisted Treatment Program
CHS has recently been the recipient of the HRSA Substance Abuse Service Expansion funding. With this grant, CHS will be able to accomodate 400 new clients annually and expand its Medication Assisted Treatment services tremendously.
Suboxone is a medication for the treatment of addiction to opioid painkillers and street opiate drugs, including heroin. Our program consists of Psychiatrists, an APRN, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and an Engagement Specialist who have expertise in dealing with opioid dependence and the transition to Suboxone. This team will provide support during your treatment. We use state-of-the-art comprehensive and best practices for the treatment of addiction. Additionally, our team consists of bicultural and bilingual (English and Spanish) providers.

Benefits:
Milder withdrawal and detoxification process.
Long lasting- Once maintained, the frequency of prescription is determined by the physician and can vary from weekly to monthly, depending on the patient's needs.
Safer than traditional prescription opiates; Suboxone alone is unlikely to result in an overdose.
Reduced health risks, especially for those currently injecting drugs.
Treats withdrawal and cravings, and blocks effects of other opiates so patients can fully participate in their recovery process.
Program Criteria
Our program serves the Greater Hartford area.
Demonstrate commitment to recovery by attending weekly recovery transition groups.
If you are actively using alcohol, cocaine or benzodiazepines you will not be considered for the program.
You are required to remain free of all substances to remain in our Medication Assisted Treatment program.
