OneWorld Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)
OneWorld is proud to offer Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for people who are struggling with substance use disorders. MAT combines behavioral health therapy and medications like Buprenorphine/Suboxone and others to treat substance use disorders. We provide a holistic, individually tailored program designed to address each patient’s individual needs.
Who can receive treatment?
We primarily use MAT to treat people who are addicted to opioids like heroin and prescription pain relievers, but we can also use it to treat people who have alcohol use disorders and smoking addictions.
What does the medication do?
The prescribed medications act to block the euphoric effects of alcohol and opioids, relieve cravings and normalize body functions without the negative effects that accompany the abused drug. We prescribe FDA-approved medications (Buprenorphine/Suboxone and others) based on each patient’s individual needs.
Why is behavioral health part of MAT?
Research shows that combining medication and behavioral health services can successfully treat substance use disorders and help sustain recovery. Different patients may need different types of behavioral health services.
What is the ultimate goal of MAT?
We want each patient using MAT to make a full recovery and to live an empowered, self-directed life.
To make an appointment to discuss MAT, please call (402) 734-4110.
Before using MAT, tell your provider if you are currently taking anxiety medications including derivatives of Benzodiazepine, such as Xanax or valium. Combining these medications with the medications used in MAT can be fatal.

Behavioral Health Director
Kelly Dorfmeyer earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and she holds a Master of Science in psychology from California Polytechnic State University. Dorfmeyer came to OneWorld with 22 years of experience involving working with underserved populations. Prior to starting her position as OneWorld’s Behavioral Health Director in September 2019, she spent more than 13 years at Telecare Corporation’s secure residential program serving adults with severe and persistent mental illness and co-occurring disorders.
In California, she spent time working with pregnant and parenting teenagers and doing child and family therapy. When she moved to Omaha, she provided individual and family therapy for adolescents and adults who had substance use or addiction issues and/or mental health difficulties. In addition, Dorfmeyer was involved in intensive outpatient group therapy for adolescents struggling with substance use and addiction along with mental health, legal and behavioral troubles, and she provided chemical dependency evaluations. Also in Omaha, Dorfmeyer developed, implemented and supervised adult and adolescent anger management programs while working as the group facilitator of both programs.
Dorfmeyer co-founded an outpatient private practice and, while shouldering the responsibilities of the operations and financial aspects of the business, she also served as a therapist. There, she provided assessment and treatment to individuals, groups and families who had mental health and/or substance abuse issues.
Dorfmeyer has provided training to other health professionals on compassion fatigue and vicarious trauma. She is experienced in program development; fundraising; workplace culture transformation; quality improvement; research and outcome measures; crisis de-escalation; clinical supervision; and the recovery model, which is a holistic, person-centered approach to health care. She is also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
When she’s not working, Dorfmeyer enjoys spending time with her husband, her two sons and her family and friends. Her favorite pastimes include spending time outdoors, working out, lifting weights, landscaping and riding motorcycles. She is also working on her Spanish proficiency—her goal is to become fluent.
