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 System 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 two Medicated Assisted Treatment (MAT) providers in Potsdam, and one in Gouverneur. MATs offered include Suboxone, which can prevent opioid withdrawl 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.
What is MAT? Addiction is a chronic disease, and through the use of MAT, we tailor medication, counseling, and other support services according to best practices and individual needs.
You are worth it.
