Addiction Treatment Services:
Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) We now offer MAT to BVCHC patients currently in maintenance phase of treatment. BVCHC does not conduct treatment induction and stabilization. Our care team will determine if you qualify for BVCHC MAT program or if a higher level of care is more beneficial to you.
Under the Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 (DATA 2000), physicians are required to complete additional training to qualify a waiver to prescribe and dispense Suboxone (Buprenorphine). Not all of BVCHC providers are DATA waivered and you may receive this treatment from another provider who works with your PCP. Please understand we may utilize patient waitlists if demand for services exceeds the number allowed under Federal regulations.
