Opioid Treatment Program
For almost 40 years, Opioid treatment has helped stabilize lives where other forms of treatment have failed. Opioid treatment reduces the incidence of HIV and other infectious diseases, dramatically decreases criminal behavior, and significantly improves the lives of those engaged in treatment.
The Opioid Treatment Program at the Addiction Institute at Mount Sinai is a comprehensive treatment program for individuals with an opioid addiction. In addition to the administration of methadone and buprenorphine, we provide a full range of clinical services to meet the needs of our patients.
Goals of the Program
- To provide comprehensive services, i.e. counseling, psychiatric services, medical treatment, for individuals with an opioid addiction
- To provide substance abuse counseling and therapy (group and/or individual), in addition to medical and medication management
- To assist patients in achieving their goals and improving their quality of life
We achieve these goals by offering a wide array of treatment options in tandem with methadone or buprenorphine. A patient can attend our Group Program during the week in addition to receiving medication. Each patient is also assigned to an individual clinician for one-on-one therapy, counseling or case management services. Psychiatric and medical management is provided on site.
The program services include:
- Methadone Treatment
- Buprenorphine Treatment
- Individual, Family Counseling and Treatment
