The Importance of Comprehensive Care
Wherever you are in your recovery, we can help you.
We are committed to providing addiction treatment services for anyone who is ready to break their cycle of addiction. St. Lawrence Health will work with each individual one-on-one to evaluate their needs and goals from the start. Our team includes licensed alcohol and substance use counselors, mental health providers, and medical staff who work together to ensure a gentle transition between services and providers as they move through each stage of substance abuse treatment. We are the only substance use disorder treatment facility within 100 miles providing a full range of addiction services with individualized, person-centered care and treatment plans for drug, alcohol, and chemical dependency.
We have Medicated Assisted Treatment (MAT) providers in Potsdam and Gouverneur. MATs offered include Suboxone, which can prevent opioid withdrawal symptoms and help reduce cravings to use illicit opioids; and Naltrexone injection, which is a non-addictive opioid blocker used in the treatment of opioid dependence.
Addiction is a chronic disease, and through the use of Medicated Assisted Treatment, we tailor medication, counseling, and other support services according to best practices and individual needs.
Medicated Assisted Treatment (MAT)
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is a form of rehabilitation that combines the use of medications, counseling, and behavioral therapy to treat patients who live with substance abuse and addiction. Non-addictive medications approved by the FDA are used to block the effects of opioids and alcohol. Such medicines have proven to be successful when tailored to the specific case, and alongside different types of therapy, including individual and group sessions. St. Lawrence Health offers MAT at locations in Potsdam and Gouverneur, as well as outpatient rehabilitation programs. New patients are currently being accepted for both programs.
