Substance Use Services

Evergreen Health provides assistance for people seeking substance use services. If you are ready or considering change, our team is here for you and abstinence is not required. Our substance use services team offers individual and group counseling and medication assisted treatment for people who are interested in quitting or regaining control over their use of drugs.

We will meet you where you’re at with your use. Additionally, we will let you decide the goal of treatment. You do not have to do or be anything that you are not in order to come to Evergreen. We offer care on your own terms. Abstinence isn’t expected and we will never stop providing you our services because of drug use. You can always count on our team to be understanding and non-judgmental. Substance Use Services is a treatment approach that is unique to your goals surrounding your drug or substance use. Whether you attend individual or group counseling, we will celebrate all positive change — big and small — that you make.

Benefits of Substance Use Services:

  • Individuals who have a mental health diagnosis can be treated simultaneously for both psychiatric and substance use by the same providers
  • Available for qualified candidates who are interested in reducing or stopping their use of substances
  • Individual and group counseling
  • If you do not have insurance, we can help you sign up
  • Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, including buprenorphine (sometimes referred to as Suboxone), to help you reduce or stop your use of drugs and/or alcohol

Medication Assisted Treatment is for people who:

  • use drugs or substances, want to stop using or reduce their use AND have an interest in discussing medical treatment options

What does a treatment plan look like?

When considering MAT, you will be seen by members of Evergreen’s substance use health team. This may include counseling staff, trained nurse specialists, physician assistants and a physician experienced in the treatment of substance use. These professionals work together to help you find a treatment option that fits your individual needs.

If you are interested in MAT, please call us to determine when you can be seen for an evaluation.

More than just medical care

We have a wide range of programs and services that will help you live your healthiest life. These services include:
