Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)

MAT is an evidence-based practice proven to reduce the need for inpatient detoxification services, improve patient survival, and sustain long-term recovery. MAT also decreases illicit opiate use and criminal activity among people with substance use disorders, increases people’s ability to gain and maintain employment, and improves birth outcomes for pregnant women with substance use disorders.

Outreach Centers

HDC outreach centers offer persons with mental health disabilities the opportunity to be part of a social club, making friends and learning new skills. Outreach centers use a consumer empowerment model, integrating consumer-led activities, socialization, community outings, games, music, and support groups with the more traditional staff leadership. While these centers are not treatment programs, they work closely with staff from other HDC CSP services to assist consumers with vocational, housing, and psychotherapy needs.
