Pinelands has been at the forefront of treating opioid and heroin addiction with the newest medicines and therapies available. These medicines, prescribed by our on-staff medical director, are FDA-approved and allow patients to be physically comfortable while focusing on treatment. Medication assisted treatment (MAT) is one way we help treat patients. Combined with individual counseling, family programming and long-term recovery plans, this approach can help build a foundation for lasting recovery.
