Medication-Assisted Treatment that's big on the assist.

When you refer a patient to Rushford for addiction care, they'll gain access to the full continuum of treatments and services we offer - and you'll gain access to the highly skilled behavioral health professionals who will collaborate and coordinate with you.

Rushford offers Medication-Assisted Treatment programs for opioid dependence and for a variety of other substances. We use evidence-based treatments designed to give our patients what they need to succeed.

Rushford's continuum of care includes:

  • Medically supervised detox
  • Outpatient treatment
  • Individual and group therapy
  • Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) and Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP)
  • Intensive residential services

Extending your practice is our specialty.

Our compassionate staff recognizes that partnering with primary care doctors, psychiatrists and other specialists is key to delivering top-notch care in the communities we serve. We share the same goal of getting patients on the road to recovery. By working closely together, we make it happen faster.

In addition to all of Rushford's available treatments, patients referred to one of our programs will also gain access to:

  • Next-day assessments
  • A Working Professionals program that offers appointments to accommodate busy schedules

Medication-Assisted Treatment for opioid addiction.

A carefully monitored Medication-Assisted Treatment program allows patients going through recovery to remain functional and involved in their families, careers and in the community.

Rushford's program includes Buprenorphine (Suboxone®), Naltrexone (Revia®, Vivitrol®) and other medications to augment our psychosocial treatments. These medications may offer one or more of the following:

  • Lower risk of abuse and dependence
  • Fewer side effects
  • Long duration of action
  • Infrequent dosing, usually once-a-day
  • "Ceiling effect" blocking the ability to get high

Where privacy is part of recovery.

We understand privacy is an essential benefit for patients during recovery. That's why Rushford's Medication-Assisted Treatment programs are designed to maximize a patient's privacy. Benefits include:

  • Filling medications at a pharmacy, not a clinic
  • Small psychosocial therapy groups
  • Separately housed programs to ensure privacy and discretion
