It is the policy of CAST Centers to ensure safety and provide the highest quality of care to our clients. For those who struggle with addiction to substances like opioids or alcohol, maintaining sobriety and participating in an outpatient treatment program can be difficult. Oftentimes, the potential for relapse can be extremely dangerous. There are options for outpatient clients to utilize medication while in treatment to assist with the maintaining of sobriety. CAST Centers offers a Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) program that can help clients by utilizing FDA approved medication while participating in group and individual therapy.
If a client chooses to participate in MAT, CAST Centers will ensure that the introduction of MAT is implemented at the appropriate time and maintained during treatment, as determined by the Medical Director and/or the client’s physician. Examples of MAT medications include, but are not limited to, Acamprosate, Disulfiram, Buprenorphine and Naltrexone and/or Vivitrol. The length of time a client is prescribed medication for MAT may vary depending on the client’s individual clinical treatment plan. Clients that choose to participate in CAST Centers MAT program will be required to participate in the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) or Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) that includes group therapy and individual therapy sessions.
By combining MAT with the CAST Alignment Model of care in PHP and IOP, clients have an increased opportunity to successfully stay sober from opiates and alcohol. Taking advantage of this type of program at an outpatient level of care helps clients learn how to live a healthy sober lifestyle while continuing to work and be part of their families as well as their community of supportive people. By communicating with the CAST Centers clinical staff and medical doctors clients have the ability to create a MAT outpatient program that helps them find the freedom to be their best selves.
CAST Centers is in network with Anthem Blue Cross, MHN Health Net and accepts most PPO insurances like Cigna, Aetna and UnitedHealthcare.
