Bridges launched the State's first Mobile Addiction Treatment Team for opioid addiction treatment.The mobile unit is called M.A.T.T.'s Van. It will be parked at the Beth El Center in Milford every Monday from 11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. and on Main St. near the West Haven City Hall/West Haven Green every Tuesday and Wednesday from 1:00-5:00 p.m.
Individuals in withdrawal from opioids or otherwise ready to start treatment can visit the van to receive a prescription for a medication called Suboxone to counter cravings and withdrawal symptoms. They will also have access to a peer counselor, a Narcan overdose reversal kit, referral to a treatment center like Bridges, and transportation to a pharmacy to fill the prescription. The service is free and does not require proof of insurance, however individuals must be over 18 to utilize the service. [ more ]
