Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
What is Medication Assisted Treatment?
Farnum offers medically supervised outpatient services for people with opiate use disorder. Clinic participants are required to meet regularly with a medical doctor or nurse practitioner who specializes in addiction medicine and specifically trained in the use of Suboxone and other MATs such as Naltrexone and Vivitrol.

First, clients enter the program through our admissions program, Open Access. Open Access Assessments are conducted by skilled clinicians to determine the appropriate placement and level of care for the client. This is a walk-in service with locations in both Manchester, NH, and Franklin, NH.
Once MAT outpatient services are recommended as the appropriate level of care, the client will start to participate in the MAT programs.
What to Expect
Every client who engages in our MAT program is assigned to an outpatient counselor who will work with the client to formulate an appropriate clinical treatment plan to include engagement in our Partial Hospitalization Program, Intensive Outpatient Program, or Outpatient Program. Participation in the recommended groups, which are offered in both the mornings as well as evenings, is mandatory for continued treatment in our MAT program.
Starting with the initial assessment and continuing through the MAT program, clients partner with their treatment team to develop an aftercare plan that may include a step down to Intensive Outpatient Services or even standard Outpatient Services.
