ABOUT MOUNT SINAI BETH ISRAEL - METHADONE MAINTENANCE TREATMENT PROGRAM

The methadone maintenance treatment program (MMTP) at Mount Sinai Beth Israel is the largest nonprofit methadone clinic in the United States, operating at more than 18 clinics throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn. Treatment consists of outpatient medication-assisted therapy for individuals struggling with an addiction to opiates.

TREATMENT & ASSESSMENT

Treatment begins with a medical exam and an interview conducted at the Addiction Institute at Mount Sinai — Beth Israel, which are used to determine the degree and nature of the chemical dependency, the effects of the dependency on the client's life, and the most appropriate course of treatment. Admissions can be processed as either walk-ins or referrals.

Methadone is available in a variety of programs: as part of an ambulatory (or outpatient) detox program, or as part of a longer-term maintenance program designed to prevent clients from returning to opiate use.

The methadone maintenance program does not appear to involve any counseling, but the program's description does specifically refer to Mount Sinai Beth Israel's other treatment programs, which can be pursued in conjunction with methadone maintenance. These programs include inpatient detox, inpatient rehabilitation, and outpatient programs. The center's counseling is evidence-based and multidisciplinary, and includes individual, group, and family counseling, including gender-specific and Spanish-speaking groups as well as groups on topics such as domestic violence, anger management, LGBT issues, and dual diagnosis.

STAFF CREDENTIALS

The interdisciplinary team includes social workers, addiction and substance abuse counselors, physicians, physician assistants, and registered nurses.
