Medication Assisted Treatment (M.A.T.) Services

Our medication assisted treatment (M.A.T.) services take a comprehensive approach to drug addiction treatment in Chicago.


At ACCESS, we believe that addiction is a disease.


Our M.A.T. program is a drug treatment program that is a safe and effective way to treat opiate addiction. The program takes a comprehensive approach to treatment and seeks to benefit the whole person through: 

Drug addiction is a disease which needs both supportive medical treatment, as well as emotional reinforcement, to help alleviate it. It is difficult to leave opiate addiction without medical support as a very low success rate is reported for those who have quit opiate addiction without being administered prescription drugs. Medications such as buprenorphine, also called suboxone treatment, may be used in drug addiction treatment because:

  • It reduces or removes withdrawal symptoms
  • It reduces drug cravings
  • Improves chances of leading a normal life without drug dependency
  • Increases adherence to treatment and success
  • It is safe and effective when taken as prescribed. It is almost impossible to overdose
  • It does not require hospitalization to begin treatment
  • It can be administered as an outpatient procedure, allowing more time for family and work
