& RECLAIM YOUR LIFE
Clinically driven care, focusing on a whole-person approach to treatment.
Recovering from opioid use disorder and/or alcohol use disorder may seem overwhelming, but BHcare is here to help. We will meet where you are at in your journey to recovery. We provide medication, outpatient treatment and support and will work with you every step of the way.
What is Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)?
Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) uses medications along with counseling, coaching and behavioral therapies to help those struggling with opioid use disorder and/or alcohol use disorder rebuild their lives free from substance use.
Behavioral therapies help clients modify their attitudes and behaviors related to drug and alcohol use, and increase healthy life skills. Medications used to treat the physiological aspects of substance use disorders help people stay in treatment longer, which allows clients to develop deeper skills in relapse prevention and more time to build key recovery support into their lives.
The BHcare Program: Tailored to Individual Needs and Goals
BHcare’s treatment concept is to support YOU in recovery where you are, without judgement or assumptions, recognizing that the benefit of any and all treatment outweighs the risk of no treatment.
MAT is the use of FDA-approved medications – along with comprehensive counseling and behavioral therapies – to help to provide a “whole-person” approach to address issues related to opioid and/or alcohol dependence, including withdrawal management, cravings and relapse prevention.
Together, with YOU, BHcare we will develop a treatment plan that meets your individual needs and helps you achieve your goals. Ensuring that your preferences, needs and values guide our decisions, and the care we provide is respectful of and responsive to each individual.
The BHcare Team: Where Expertise Meets Trust
Our treatment team includes MDs, APRNs, clinicians, nursing staff, medical assistants, and licensed alcohol and drug counselors.
Recovery Coaches provide outreach, engagement, and assistance with recovery. Their lived experience, along with training, promotes reduced substance use.
We emphasize the involvement of family members, significant others, and loved ones to be part of the individual’s recovery process.
What Medications Are Offered at BHcare?
BHcare offers buprenorphine (Suboxone®) for treatment of opioid use disorder. This medication may be prescribed for a period of years to help stabilize and support the person making changes in other life areas. We also use Vivitrol (Naltrexone). Individuals seeking Methadone are referred out to area providers.
BHcare uses medication such as Campral® (acamprosate), Vivitrol®/Revia™ (naltrexone) or Antabuse® (disulfiram) to treat alcohol use disorder and to help sustain recovery. The medications directly target and normalize the brain chemicals disrupted by alcohol.
Insurance & Medicare
MAT is available at our outpatient clinics in Ansonia and Branford. Commercial, HUSKY/Medicaid, and Medicare insurances accepted, sliding fee scale available.
A Whole-Person Approach to Treatment
