Medication Assisted Treatment
UCS Healthcare is one of the few Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) providers in the state of Iowa. We have successfully helped hundreds of patients recover from addictions, including opioids or alcohol, through individualized treatment programs offering a combination of medication and counseling. Through our own experience and independent studies, this combination creates a greater opportunity for our patients to succeed with their long-term recovery.
We utilize a variety of medications in our MAT program for treatment of alcohol or opioid use disorder.
Our belief at UCS is that medication used in MAT to treat addiction is much like using medication for other illnesses. Reducing the cravings and withdrawal symptoms through MAT often allows our patients the ability to lead a more productive life – working, spending time with family and friends, performing the tasks of daily life – while engaging in counseling to address all their needs as they move toward recovery. MAT treatment is available in our clinics in Des Moines and Ankeny as well as in our medication units in partnership with certified treatment centers.
