What is MAT services

Mighty Acorn Counseling (aka “TMAC”) provides medicated assisted treatment which is the use of Buprenorphine. When used properly through treatment with a medical provider who prescribes a therapeutic dose, Buprenorphine helps eliminate withdrawal from heroin &/or other opiates in people addicted &/or dependent on these substances. It can be taken daily and can aid in ceasing &/or easing the withdrawal symptoms associated with heroin/opiate addiction. We also provide counseling services to help provide coping skills and relapse prevention plans to help journey with the client through the struggles of addiction. To be admitted to our MAT Program for treatment, the following criterion applies:

1. You must be 18 years or older.

2. You must meet the substance dependence criteria listed in the DSM-5.

3. You must be medically able to tolerate treatment.

4. You must be an Ohio resident as evidenced by a state-issued photo ID.

5. You must qualify for the level of care we can provide according to the Initial Level of Care Assessment.

We also require initial drug and ongoing drugs screen to ensure that the medication is working effectively.

All services are provided through telehealth services to help reduce geographical barriers.

You may wonder how quick the process is. This is up to you. Once we do an initial screening to make sure you qualify for the program, we get you set up with a lab that sends out a kit with a DNA swab so that future test are confirmed that they are the client's. The swab is done over a video call with the lab and then the kit with the DNA Swab is sent back with the initial urine screen. Once the urine is processed, TMAC will receive the results in 24 to 48 hours and can get you scheduled with a provider to get your initial medication. The journey in recovery is rough, we want to stand along side of you so that you are not alone.
