Frequently Asked Questions

MAT is a clinically effective treatment that utilizes FDA-approved medications like buprenorphine-naloxone (Suboxone) and naltrexone (Vivitrol) – along with counseling and behavioral therapies – to address issues related to opioid and alcohol addiction, including withdrawal symptoms, cravings, and relapse prevention.

The best way to know if MAT is right for you is to talk with a medical professional or schedule a consultation with SaVida Health.

While there is no “cure” for addiction, Suboxone is an effective treatment for opioid dependency.

Suboxone works by suppressing opioid withdrawal symptoms and cravings. This gives you time to work with counselors and case managers on addressing your triggers of addiction and learning new coping skills to succeed in long-term recovery.

Pregnant women struggling with opioid addiction should be offered medication-assisted treatment with buprenorphine or methadone and evidence-based behavioral therapies.

Experts agree that, when it comes to treating opioid addiction during pregnancy, the benefits of buprenorphine far outweigh the risks. To date, research has not shown buprenorphine can cause an increase in birth defects, and the medication has minimal long-term neurodevelopmental impact.

Yes, we treat co-occurring disorders at SaVida Health. Our multidisciplinary team includes experienced mental health specialists who can address mental health conditions that often exist alongside opioid and alcohol abuse, including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and others.

At SaVida Health, we work hard to make quality treatment available and affordable for everyone. Your out-of-pocket cost, if any, will depend upon your health insurance coverage and benefits. SaVida Health accepts Medicaid and most forms of commercial insurance.

Depending on your insurance plan, financial responsibility may vary. Some insurance plans will cover 100% of the program costs and the cost of medication. We will verify your insurance for acceptance and assist you in determining cost.

Our multi-disciplinary team will work with you to create an individualized treatment plan. Ultimately, the length of treatment is based on your progress and recovery goals.

SaVida Health has a growing network of outpatient treatment locations. We are currently located in Massachusetts, Vermont, Delaware, Virginia, and Ohio.  Details can be found on our Service Areas page.

The frequency of your office visits will be determined by our team of clinical professionals. Unlike methadone treatment, treatment with buprenorphine or naltrexone does not require daily visits to a clinic for dosing. Generally speaking, as you successfully progress through our medication-assisted treatment program, the frequency of office visits will transition from weekly to bi-weekly to monthly.

Counseling is a vital component of any successful medication-assisted treatment program. In order to help you accomplish your recovery goals, SaVida Health offers group, individual, family, intensive outpatient counseling, and case management services.

Following a medical assessment, our multi-disciplinary team will work with you to develop a treatment plan specifically tailored to your needs. If you’re ready to get started, follow one of these paths:
