Transformation Institute for Women
LRADAC offers gender-specific programming to meet the specialized treatment needs of women. The Transformation Institute for Women gives each woman the opportunity to participate in programs that were created not only to address substance abuse or addiction issues but to heal the whole woman.
LRADAC offers programming to accommodate the specific needs of individuals with the following considerations: intravenous (IV) drug use, co-occurring substance use and mental health issues, HIV/AIDS, criminal justice involvement, and members of the LGBTQ community.
Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
In response to the increasing opioid problem in our communities, LRADAC offers Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) as an accompaniment to our treatment services. LRADAC embraces a behavioral health treatment model, where all patients engage in group and/or individual therapy, with intensity varying based upon an individual’s assessment. Individuals struggling with opioid misuse may come in for an assessment during regular walk-in times. Those who meet the admission criteria will be screened for possible admission to the MAT Program. For patients accepted into the MAT Program, medications such as Suboxone, Subutex, other buprenorphine medications, or Vivitrol may be prescribed as part of your treatment plan of care.
