EHN offers a Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) Program at its Westside Integrated Primary Medical Care Clinic which is the use of medications combined with counseling and behavioral strategies to help treat individuals with substance use disorders.
The program is designed to help those struggling with addiction of opioids (i.e. heroin and/or prescription drugs) and alcohol. Research has shown with the combination of medication and behavioral therapy, the success rate increases when treating substance use disorders by helping those sustain recovery.
Medications used in our program are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and therapy treatment is tailored to meet each individual’s need. Our MAT program’s Medical Director, Dr. C. Thornburg, specializes in Addiction Medicine and Family Medicine.
Patients who are eligible for this program must be willing to detox from opiates and/or alcohol and adhere to the following:

The OSAR (Outreach, Screening, Assessment and Referral) program is funded by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and is managed by Emergence Health Network. Regardless of ability to pay, OSAR staff will meet with an individual, in a confidential setting, to assess whether he or she needs to be referred to a substance use treatment program for help. Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselors ensure that each person is then connected to community drug treatment services. The screening, assessment and referral is free to any Texas residents 13-years and older.

Office-based Opioid Treatment is a complete treatment program for individuals with Opiate Use Disorder that includes the use of therapeutic medications, along with individual and group counseling sessions. Supported employment services are also offered to individuals with Opiate Use Disorder. These individuals will have a job development specialist assist them to secure and retain employment through numerous services and supports.
Emergence Health Network offers the Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) for clients with a chemical dependency/mental health dual diagnosis. The PHP provides individuals with the care of a residential treatment program but allows the clients to spend evenings at home. This is beneficial for people who are dealing with problems too severe to be managed in outpatient therapy alone. The program involves a longer treatment visit, usually several hours, than what is typically offered in a doctor’s or therapist’s office. The controlled environment is often a useful step-down transition from acute inpatient care or an alternative to inpatient treatment.
Individuals who need assistance with overcoming a substance use disorder can get help through our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) offered at Emergence Health Network. The IOP provides a more structured therapeutic setting than what is typically offered in a traditional outpatient setting. The IOP allows staff to help clients several times a week for several hours during the day.
