What Is Medication-Assisted Treatment?

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is a type of treatment where medications are utilized in addition to behavioral therapy. The patient who undergoes detox and addiction recovery may be prescribed certain medications to help them restabilize upon quitting drugs or alcohol, if necessary.

According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Medication-Assisted Treatment 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.”

Suboxone

We’ve seen positive results of Medication-Assisted Treatment with Suboxone. Suboxone is the name of a medication that is a mixture of Buprenorphine + Naloxone.

In today’s world of addiction recovery medicine, MAT with Suboxone shows to be a good choice to treat opioid addictions.

We do not use Methadone at our Costa Mesa facility.

Buprenorphine

Buprenorphine is the component in Suboxone that alleviates withdrawal symptoms and discomfort. It’s considered pharmaceutically safe and non-addictive.

Buprenorphine reduces cravings for opioid drugs, which is also why it’s commonly recommended for withdrawal in recovering addicts. As a partial opioid agonist, it activates opioid receptors in the brain but does not give the addictive sense of euphoria that heroin or other drugs give.
