M.A.T. As A Pathway to Recovery
While our ultimate goal in recovery is to assist individuals to attain a drug-free lifestyle, we understand there are many pathways to get there. For some battling opiate dependence, medically-assisted treatment enables them to move forward towards a joyous, happy, and free life.
Medicated-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of FDA-approved medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a "whole-patient" approach to the treatment of substance use disorders.
A common misconception associated with MAT is that it substitutes one drug for another. Instead, these medications relieve the withdrawal symptoms and psychological cravings that cause chemical imbalances in the body.
Many of our patients benefit from antagonists/agonists pharmacological tools at various stages of recovery, and various delivery routes, such as:
Buprenorphine (Suboxone, Bunavail, Subutex, Zubsolv)
Naltrexone (ReVia, Vivitrol)
Naloxone (Narcan, Envzio)
Antagonist/Agonist therapy is not a stand-alone solution. When antagonist/agonist therapy is combined with robust psychotherapy and sober fellowship, lives can be saved and transformed.
