One service that Mary’s Center’s IRP offers is Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT). If you are struggling with opioid or alcohol use, we can provide medications like buprenorphine (Suboxone) and naltrexone (Vivitrol) – safe and clinically proven treatments – in conjunction with other supports to help you reduce your use of substances. Patients who have used these medications have reported experiencing a decrease in cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
Mary’s Center is ready to partner with you on your journey toward recovery. To learn more or schedule an appointment, call our Intake Coordinator & Addictions Specialist Maria Paige at (202) 253-1150.
We accept most insurance plans including Medicaid and Medicare. If you don’t have health insurance, we’ll help you apply for public benefits or provide care at a discount.
