What Is Medication-Assisted Treatment?

group at a medication assisted treatment centerAccording to SAMHSA, medication-assisted treatment involves the use of medications along with counseling to provide treatment to those with substance use disorders. Medications used in a MAT program have received the approval of the Food and Drug Administration. Therefore, the programs at ChoicePoint strictly follow federal regulations.

Effective ways to treat substance abuse disorders must include safe treatment without the stigma associated with the medications used to make recovery easier. Our medication-assisted treatment center provides professional counseling and matches clients up with MAT medications to alleviate withdrawal symptoms. Additionally, the ambulatory nature of our service provides privacy and discretion to our clients.

The FDA has approved three drugs for opioid use disorder: methadone, buprenorphine, and naltrexone. These medications have provided safe, effective vehicles for long-term recovery. Combined with psychosocial support and counseling, a MAT program can save lives.

It’s important to note that MAT programs cannot provide a miracle cure. Some clients stay on approved medications indefinitely. However, this prevents relapse to more harmful substances and our outpatient format allows you to pursue a productive life.

Do MAT Programs Work?

When you receive treatment at a medication-assisted treatment center, you have access to the same therapy and treatment plans as more intensive programs. Research shows that combining medication with therapy can help those struggling with addiction realize long-term recovery. After you’re sober, a MAT program makes it easier to sustain a drug-free life.

Much of the success of the program depends on your determination to make it work. With the right support system around you and the help of our intensive outpatient program, you can make it. Additionally, our supportive community stands behind you every step of the way so that you don’t feel alone.

Many clients come to our medication-assisted treatment center to recover from opioids, including prescription painkillers and heroin.
