Addiction Services

Horizon Health Services offer many outpatient treatment services for individuals and their families, including counseling, peer advocates, harm reduction, and Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT).

Medication Assisted Treatment is often a critical part of one’s recovery. Rapid access to medication can assist patients with the management of cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Addressing the physical aspects of addiction is a core component of the overall treatment process. Horizon’s medical providers utilize a variety of medications to assist individuals, including but not limited to buprenorphine, Vivitrol®, and Sublocade®.

Feeling better is possible. We can help.

Many Horizon outpatient services can be offered through virtual care. Request an appointment or call 716-831-1800.

Providers work closely with patients to establish their recovery and harm reduction goals for treatment.
