Expert Care, Close to Home

Opioid Use Disorder (OUD)

OUD is a chronic brain disease that may affect anyone. It can be treated through proven methods, like our integrated medication assisted treatment (IMAT) program. Learn more about OUD and Medication for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD).

The goal of MOUD is to improve the quality of life of individuals with Opioid Use Disorder (OUD). Buprenorphine is proven to help with the treatment of OUD since it is safe, encourages treatment compliance and reduces possibilities for abuse and overdose. It is the intent of the practices within the MaineHealth system, including Maine Behavioral Healthcare to provide eligible patients comprehensive medication and therapy services to help in recovery from substance use disorders, develop skills to sustain recovery, improve mental health and physical and functional well-being.

Only physicians qualified under Drug Addiction Treatment Act (DATA) of 2000, who have completed Drug Enforcement Agency/Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (DEA/SAMHSA) training and hold DEA waivers shall prescribe buprenorphine in any treatment setting.

MOUD supports patients recovering from OUD and offers individualized treatment that may include the following services:

  1. Medically supervised induction and ongoing MOUD
  2. Intensive Outpatient Programming (a minimum of 3 hours of group treatment for a minimum of 3 days/week)
  3. Educational services including education about buprenorphine and health maintenance
  4. Counseling services including individual and group therapy addressing issues pertaining to addiction
  5. Case management
