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. MAT programs provide a safe and controlled level of medication to overcome the use of an abused opioid.
Medications for opioid dependency:
Methadone, buprenorphine or Suboxone, and naltrexone are used to treat opioid dependence and addiction to opioids such as heroin, morphine, and codeine, as well as semi-synthetic opioids like oxycodone and hydrocodone. If you are interested, and want to find out if MAT is right for you, we will be glad to discuss these treatment options with you.
Medications for alcohol use disorder:
Disulfiram, acamprosate, naltrexone or Vivitrol are the most common drugs used to treat alcohol use disorder. None of these drugs provide a cure for the disorder, but they are most effective in people who participate in a MAT program.
Because recovery is a lifelong process, there’s no wrong way to approach the 12 Steps as the participant tries to figure out what works best for their individual needs. The 12 Steps were created by the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous to establish guidelines for the best way to overcome an addiction to alcohol. The program gained enough success in its early years for other addiction support groups to adapt the steps to their own needs. There are many 12 Steps programs for various addictions and compulsive behaviors, ranging from Narcotic Anonymous, to Gambling Anonymous, as well as Chronic Pain anonymous - all using the same 12 Step principles. Although the 12 Steps are heavy on spirituality, many nonreligious people have found the program immensely helpful. The language emphasizes the presence of God as each participant understands him, allowing for different interpretations and religious beliefs.
