From 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Monday at the Salida Community Center at 305 F Street the Medication Assistance Treatment (MAT) mobile unit offers medication-assisted treatment, helping people with opioid-use disorders.

The project is in partnership with Front Range Clinic and the Colorado Office of Behavioral Health. Outfitted with a nurse, addiction counselor and peer recovery specialist, this program strives to help provide addiction treatment.  MAT offers medications, counseling options as well as peer services.

The mobile unit accepts Colorado Medicaid, New Mexico Medicaid, Medicaid, United Healthcare and Cigna. For patients without insurance they offer a sliding scale; no one will be turned away.
