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 and with 14 locations across Iowa providing MAT services, chances are good this treatment is convenient for you.

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.

We offer priority admission and specialized services for pregnant women entering MAT services. MAT medications are safe for pregnant women and their unborn fetus. Women can experience normal pregnancies, give birth and raise healthy children while receiving MAT treatment. It is imperative that you receive prenatal care. If you don't have an obstetrician, we will refer you to one that is experienced in treating pregnant women in MAT. Please contact us for more information.

Medication Units

Patients currently in treatment for alcohol and opioid use disorders may be able to access medication assisted treatment through UCS Healthcare at certain certified treatment centers in Iowa. A complete assessment is needed to begin MAT treatment. Please contact us today to schedule an assessment.
