Medication Assisted Treatment
Medication-assisted treatment, or MAT, uses FDA-approved medications in combination with therapy to effectively treat substance use disorders, including opioid addiction, and reduce the risk of relapse, helping maintain and manage recovery.
The medications in MAT are designed to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms, making it easier to focus on therapy and other aspects of recovery. Medication-assisted treatment also helps with long-term sobriety and sustainable recovery by minimizing the possibility of relapse.
The combination of therapy and medication helps increase the success of addiction treatment, allowing individuals a greater opportunity to make lasting changes in their lives. MAT provides a safer environment for residents of inpatient substance use treatment, as medications are carefully monitored and administered in a controlled setting.
Medication-assisted treatment is not a replacement for therapy or other forms of treatment but rather another evidence-based treatment that can improve the effectiveness of life-long recovery. Our expert medical team of doctors and nurse practitioners carefully assess the integration of MAT into inpatient care on a case-by-case basis, cautiously determining if it will be beneficial during medical detox and throughout treatment.
