Family Medicine Clinics
Medication-Assisted Treatment Clinic
Opioid addiction is a chronic disease, like heart disease or diabetes. A chronic disease is a medical condition for life. It cannot be cured, but it can be managed. With treatment a person with addiction can regain a healthy and productive life. Treatment can help to overcome the addiction, get through withdrawal and cope with cravings. At SIU Center for Family Medicine Quincy, we offer MAT along with counseling and other support, to help patients manage addiction so that the benefits of recovery can be maintained. Buprenorphine (Suboxone®) is a medication commonly used to treat opioid addiction. Buprenorphine or Naltrexone may be prescribed if one of those medications are a right choice for you.
Care Coordination Services at SIU Center for Family Medicine - Quincy offers programs to help patients with chronic conditions improve the overall quality of their lives, ensure that they receive care based on the best medical practices, improve their understanding of their condition and reduce hospital admissions and emergency department visits.
The care coordinators are an extension of the primary care teams and will work with the patient, their families, nursing staff and their primary care provider. The main goal of care coordination is to meet patient needs and to deliver high-quality care. This means that the patient's needs and preferences are known and communicated at the right time to the right people. This information is used to guide the delivery of safe, appropriate and effective care.
