Substance Use Services

In 2016, Family Health Centers began a Substance Use Services program using Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT). This program helps people battling:

  • Heroin
  • Pain pills
  • Alcohol
  • Other opioid addictions

If you are interested in these services or have a referral, call 772-8118. 

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) can help you recover from opioid or alcohol addiction. Our program combines medicine with counseling services. Together this can help reduce cravings and make it easier for you to stay sober. Our program combines medical services, medicine, and mental health services to help our patients in their recovery. Patients requesting help may be prescribed a once-a-month shot* or a daily pill**.  This medicine can help reduce cravings and prevent relapse.

Talk to a Family Health Centers provider to see if this is a good program for you. MAT services require you to:

  • Meet with your Family Health Centers medical provider.
  • Screen negative for opioids or pregnancy.
  • Take part in counseling services.

If you are interested in these services or have a referral, call 772-8118. 

Medication Assisted Treatment is available as part of the medical services to Family Health Center medical patients. If you are interested in MAT services, FHC medical providers can help determine if this is the right treatment for you.  Patients must be opioid free for at least 7 days, and 14 days free of Suboxone or Methodaone before receiving a shot or pill.

  • FHC-Portland, 2215 Portland Ave
