How Do I Know If Medicine Assisted Treatment Is Right For Me?

Have you tried abstinence and been unable to string more than a few days or weeks together? Have you come in and out of recovery and unsure of what you are missing? Medicine Assisted Treatment can help you achieve sobriety by helping to control cravings. Controlling cravings and having a strong support system can help reduce the likelihood of relapse.

How do I get started?

Getting started on a path to life transformation starts with a quick phone call to Alteri Behavioral Health at (859) 277-4992 from 8:30am-5:00pm Monday-Friday. Our office management will speak with you about our services and give you a chance to ask questions. Then, we will gather some information like your name, date of birth, insurance information, etc. and get you scheduled for your first visit with us.

If you are seeking Medication Assisted Treatment or other medical services, our medical provider will then meet with you for an hour to dive into your goals for recovery. Please do not present to the facility under the influence of any substances.

Targeted Case Management services are an optional addition to our program but we encourage you to meet with a Targeted Case Manager to discuss any basic needs you may have such as assistance with housing, transportation, employment, etc.
