Supportive Medication and Recovery Treatment (SMART) program

Combining medication-assisted treatment with group and individual therapy sessions, the Supportive Medication and Recovery Treatment (SMART) program aims to comprehensively address the unique needs of individuals with substance use disorders.

Sessions are initially scheduled weekly and then phase into less frequent visits over time. A visit will include 30 minutes of group medication management, regular and random urine drug screenings, and one hour of group therapy with eight to 12 other people in recovery. Individual therapy, case management and peer support are also available.

Participants are expected to engage in recovery activities outside of weekly sessions as well as actively support their peers in the program.

Our SMART team is made up of clinicians, peer support specialists and a case manager, who work together to ensure a successful recovery.

  • SMART Clinic for Parenting Women

    This program (formerly Beyond Birth Clinic) is a holistic approach for women with substance use disorders. The Beyond Birth program accepts parenting women who are age 18 or older, who have a least one child age 5 or younger.

    Referred women must have a substance use disorder diagnosis and be able to provide information about where this diagnosis was received.

    Patients must also be insured by Medicaid or a private insurance plan.
