CommonHealth Recovery


Medication-Assisted Treatment is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a whole-patient approach to the treatment of substance use disorders.

Research shows that when treating substance-use disorders, a combination of medication and behavioral therapies is most successful. Medication-assisted treatment is clinically driven with a focus on individualized patient care.

CommonHealth Recovery treats opioid use disorder (OUD) and alcohol use disorder (AUD) in Frankfort, Kentucky by utilizing medications that reduce cravings such as Buprenorphine (Suboxone, Sublocade, Subutex, Zubsolv), and Naltrexone (Vivitrol) often times coupled with counseling & other behavioral therapies if needed. 

In addition to the treatment of substance use disorder (SUD), we also treat mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, trauma, stress, PTSD, suicide ideation, and other prevalent mental health disorders commonly found with substance use disorder. Co-occurring mental health disorders can be diagnosed and treated by one of our psychiatric-focused prescribers after thorough assessment.
