Nashville Suboxone Clinic Accepts TennCare

Immediate Access to Medication Assisted Treatment

NASHVILLE, TN (September 3, 2019) –Mental Health Cooperative (MHC) of Nashville has opened a Suboxone Clinic, specifically designed for TennCare members, to expand access to treatment for those struggling with opiate abuse or dependence.  Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) using Suboxone (Buprenorphine) is a FDA approved, evidence-based treatment that reduces withdrawal symptoms.

“Patients who are addicted to opiates have comprehensive treatment needs on their journey to recovery,” said Oba Hollie, M.D. “We have developed a program that specifically targets those needs that includes medication management (MAT), counseling, community-based care management and psychiatry for those who need it. We also offer specialized “Trauma Informed” therapies for those who would benefit, including Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR).”

Visitors to MHC’s Suboxone Clinic can expect a comfortable office, a safe and relaxing environment and warm and compassionate providers.  Services are office-based and are provided on an outpatient basis, so clients can continue to work or take care of their families.

“This is Nashville’s premier Suboxone Clinic for TennCare members only, who need immediate access to treatment for opiate addiction,” says Dr. Hollie.  “We are excited to be able to offer this type of care in the Nashville community knowing the impact it will have on the lives of our fellow neighbors.”

For additional information or to schedule an appointment, call (615) 743-1555 Monday -Friday 8am-4:30pm.  MHC Nashville is a local, non-profit organization located at 260-A Cumberland Bend Drive in Metro Center, near downtown.
