Diagnoses of substance abuse disorders and mental health issues are often different from person to person. Treatment plans are tailored to each client and adjusted appropriately to ensure the client receives the treatment needed for recovery.

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) can help during the acute withdrawal and detox periods for certain substances such as opioids or alcohol. MAT combines therapy with medications that manage withdrawal symptoms and cravings.

Ahwatukee Behavioral Health & Wellness provides MAT to all qualified clients when deemed medically appropriate by our providers and is offered as a part of a holistic treatment plan to promote abstinence from drugs, alcohol, and other substances of abuse.
