ASAC is seeing great success with medication assisted treatment. We are currently treating a woman who has been getting the Vivitrol injection with us since Nov. 2016 in addition to ongoing therapy with a Certified Counselor. Since that time, this patient has been able to successfully complete the halfway house program in our women and children’s program (Heart of Iowa) and move into the Way Home transitional housing. This mother has gained employment, is working toward a management position, and is training to become a parent partner with the Department of Human Services. She is getting close to having her DHS case closed with her daughter and reports overall improvement with her family relationships. She reports all of this is because of her sobriety which was made possible with the assistance of ASAC and the MAT grant, and of course her determination to turn her life around!
