Questions? MAT has answers!
What is buprenorphine?
Buprenorphine/naloxone is a medication that treats dependence on to opioids, such as prescription painkillers (like Vicodin, Oxycontin, or Percocet) and heroin/Fentanyl.
Buprenorphine/naloxone works by binding to the opioid receptors in the brain and replacing the opioid, so it allows people to stop using or cut back while avoiding cravings and withdrawal.
Suboxone and Sublocade are common brand names.
How does it work?
Buprenorphine/naloxone decreases withdrawal symptoms and cravings. This makes it easier to stop using or cut down.
How often do I have to go in for treatment?
MAT services can be done in person, via telehealth, and during street health visits. Initial treatment requires weekly check-ins.
How long is the treatment?
Some people take the medication for years. Others may choose to taper off the medication after 6-12 months.
What happens if I relapse during treatment?
Treatment doesn’t stop! We will support you as you get back on track. Counseling is available.
Will my treatment be covered by insurance?
We will treat you regardless of your insurance status. We accept Medi-Cal and can assist with insurance enrollment.
You deserve compassion and respect. We provide understanding,
non-judgmental care that meets you where you are.
