Substance use disorders are chronic diseases, like diabetes or high blood pressure. A person with a substance use disorder can regain a healthy and productive life with treatment.
At the SIU Center for Healthy Aging and Wellness, we offer Medication Assisted Recovery (MAR), therapy, and other supportive services, to help patients manage substance use disorders and move forward in their recovery.
The center treats qualified patients with one of the most commonly used opioid use disorder medications, buprenorphine (Suboxone). Buprenorphine helps to normalize brain chemistry, block the euphoric effects of alcohol and opioids, relieve physiological cravings and normalize body functions. It is safe for long-term use.
MAR helps reduce physical dependency on opioids while decreasing cravings and urges. MAR also lowers the risk of overdose.
Participation in our MAR program requires patients to adhere to medical visits as well as attend behavioral therapy sessions based at the center. Additional treatment recommendations may be recommended and will be based on each patient’s unique needs.

We have a governing board composed of patients and community members to help us serve the needs of the people of Springfield and other central and southern Illinois communities that we serve. In addition, our FQHC status enables us to offer special programs for low income and uninsured patients. We offer expert, convenient care to entire families, regardless of their ability to pay.
