Operating out of the EPIC Recovery Center, MARS offers medication assisted treatment (also known as MAT) for those with an opioid or alcohol addiction. MARS combines medication with counseling, care coordination and peer support — a wraparound program to ensure the best possible outcomes. Studies show that MAT, combined with counseling, is the most effective form of treatment for opioid use disorders.
A common misconception associated with MAT is that it substitutes one drug for another. Instead, the medications used in our MARS Program relieve the withdrawal symptoms and cravings that cause chemical imbalances in the body. EPIC provides a safe and controlled level of medication to overcome the use of an abused opioid and/or alcohol.
In MAT, we use medications that suppress and reduce cravings for the abused drug. Medications can come in a pill form or sublingual tablet that is placed under the tongue. Under our program, medications are administered in conjunction with counseling, care coordination, and peer support services. We recognize that addiction is both physical and psychological, and therefore want to be able to monitor the progress of each client during their treatments.
