Medication Assisted Treatment

Addiction is chronic and progressive disease. Every year, nearly 2,600 individuals lose their lives from overdose in Michigan each year*—a mere fraction of the total number of Americans harmed by opioid misuse and addiction. At Hope Network Center for Recovery, we know what recovery takes, and provide the treatments that make effective recovery possible.

Our Medication Assisted Treatment programs are located in three Michigan cities: Grand Rapids, Traverse City, and Petoskey. Based on the understanding that each person is unique, our team of caring professionals coordinate care to ensure that evidence-based therapy, combined with pharmacotherapy, is supportive of the patient as a whole.


Medications Used: Buprenorphine and Naloxone

Buprenorphine acts in the brain to reduce the desire to use opioids, including heroin, fentanyl, oxycodone, and other prescription opioids. Buprenorphine helps the patient avoid withdrawal symptoms and reduces the controlling cravings that can lead to relapse.  At Hope Network Center for Recovery, Buprenorphine is prescribed under brand names Suboxone and Zubsolv and come as a tablet or as a film. Suboxone and Zubsolv are made by combining Buprenorphine with naloxone to avoid misuse. A medical provider meets with the patient on a regular basis to monitor progress and ensure that withdrawal symptoms are appropriately managed.

Evidence-Based Therapy

When we treat individuals for addiction, we believe that medication is only one facet of effective rehabilitation. Medication (Pharmacotherapy)—in combination with evidenced-based therapy to address the emotional and social problems resulting from addiction—gives the patient the best opportunity for success with long-term recovery.

  • Individual Therapy – Therapists skilled in various evidenced-based substance use disorder counseling approaches partner with the patient and complete a multi-faced assessment followed by custom plan. The plan supports one’s transition from active addiction to recovery—and all the milestones in-between.
  • Group Therapy – Individuals with similar needs and goals are supported by a therapist. Together in a group, they explore ways of restoring physical, emotional, and social aspects of healthy living.
  • Supportive Relationships and Family Therapy – We understand that support from loved ones can be instrumental in a patient’s recovery journey. When appropriate, our therapists encourage the involvement of supportive persons as the patient progresses in their recovery journey.
