    NORTH CENTRAL BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SYSTEMS HAS IMMEDIATE OPENINGS FOR MEDICATION-ASSISTED TREATMENT FOR SUBSTANCE ADDICTION

    Ottawa, IL - The rising prevalence of addiction in our community can be attributed to various factors, including stress, economic challenges, and the easy accessibility of addictive substances. We must unite as a community to support each other. If you or someone you know struggles with substances, help is available.
     
    Reclaim control over your life. Discover hope and healing with Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT), supported by the benefits of Medicare or Medicaid coverage.
     
    MAT involves the use of medication along with counseling and behavioral therapies. It is a crucial aspect of the federal response to the opioid crisis and has been proven to:

    • Minimize the psychological and physical cravings for a substance, normalizing the body’s chemistry
    • Improve withdrawal experiences and cravings
    • Lower the risk of relapse
    • Lower the risk of drug-related death
    The treatment has the potential to assist millions of Americans struggling with opioid use disorder, reducing the risk of death from all causes by half, as reported by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
     
    MAT Treatment is Available at NCBHS in Ottawa, IL
    Our comprehensive approach combines medication, counseling, and behavioral therapies to empower individuals in overcoming opioid addiction, helping them unlock a path to recovery.
     
    You or someone you know may benefit from MAT. Intake evaluations can be scheduled by calling our office at 815-434-4727. Learn more at https://www.ncbhs.org/mat-program
