Addiction medicine provides opiate-free pain management for patients seeking a life free from addictive drugs. Opioid dependencies and addictions have increased in patients of all ages as a result of substance use disorders. For some, opioid addiction has become a negative and costly part of their medical treatment experience, and for others, the medication no longer alleviates their symptoms or provides pain relief.
As a long-term solution, opioids may present more risks than benefits, leading patients to look for alternatives. Even after completing a treatment program, you may still have concerns about future pain flare ups, and if another episode of pain will result in using opioids again. We are here to help you address these questions and explore your options. By equipping our patients with resources to continue on their path to recovery, we provide a new way to manage your pain.

Medicated-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is a form of opiate-free pain management that uses a combination of FDA-approved medication, counseling, and behavioral therapies to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders.
These medications relieve the withdrawal symptoms from the side effects of opiates and the psychological cravings that cause chemical imbalances in the body. MAT programs provide a safe and controlled level of medication to provide pain relief while overcoming the use of an abused opioid.
