Medication- Assisted Treatment

For those struggling with opiate or alcohol addiction, the Medication- Assisted Treatment program (MAT) at Rosary Hall can help. We also offer a full continuum of outpatient substance use disorder treatment to offer additional support, including our partial hospitalization program, intensive outpatient program and case management.

What is MAT?

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a whole-patient approach to the treatment of substance use disorders.

At Rosary Hall, our MAT program uses Vivitrol, Suboxone or Sublocade for treatment, and the program is available to all patients, including with private insurance and Medicaid. The ultimate goal of MAT is full recovery, including the ability to live a self-directed life.


Our addiction medicine physicians and advance practice nursing team provide a comprehensive, individually tailored program of medication and behavioral therapy that address the needs of most patients.

Admission Criteria: 

  • Must be at least 18 years old
  • Diagnosis of opiate dependency
  • Established housing within 50 miles of treatment facility
  • Willing to take part in all treatment services
  • Not allergic to Suboxone, Vivitrol or Sublocade
  • Medically stable
  • Stable on psychiatric medications
