Office-Based Addiction Treatment (OBAT) Services


UVa’s OBAT program serves individuals with addiction use disorders by providing medication-assisted treatment and supportive therapy on an outpatient basis to help reduce drug use and related physical and mental consequences.

We offers a holistic person-centered approach by providing prescription medications targeting cravings (Suboxone, buprenorphine, naltrexone, or Vivitrol) in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies. These medications work by providing relief from drug and alcohol cravings.

The multidisciplinary OBAT team offers a combination of recovery services and supports including medication management, counseling/therapy, case management, relapse prevention, overdose education, and care coordination to address the needs of individuals with opioid use disorders. The OBAT clinic also collaborates with local community resources to provide additional support to individuals receiving care.
