Medication-assisted treatment is the most effective way to help you end opioid dependence and stay opioid-free.

How It Works

When you join our Medications for Substance Use Disorder (MSUD) program, you get more than medications. We provide:

  • One-on-one counseling designed for your specific situation
  • Behavioral therapy to help you control your opioid use and triggers
  • Medical supervision to keep you on track and optimize your treatment

This is an evidence-based treatment that's providing results in other states, and is now available for Mississippians through our county health department. Remember, if you lack transportation, we offer free rides to appointments.

The Benefits

Our goal for you is full recovery from opioids and the ability to live a self-directed life. This treatment can also:

  • Prevent life-threatening opioid overdoses.
  • Reduce the urge to use opioids.
  • Help prevent relapses.
  • Increase your ability to get a job and do well in it.
  • Have a healthier baby if you are pregnant.
  • Help you stay in treatment to reach your goals.
