Medication Assisted Treatment Program (MAT)
Medication Assisted Treatment Programs (MAT) are largely designed to help those suffering from opioid abuse disorders. If you or a loved one uses heroin, fentanyl or other synthetic, prescription opioid medications like methadone, then you’re well aware that the withdrawals from them can be so painful that continued use may seem like the only option in life. However, medically assisted detox and MAT Programs have proven effective in curbing severe withdrawals and lead to positive outcomes.
Our 7 locations offer detox programs and MAT that utilize FDA approved medication to curb cravings and help clients maintain long-term sobriety, however narcotic medication is not used after the detox phase of treatment unless rare circumstances are present such as abnormally long addiction to benzodiazepines or methadone. In fact, many clients treated in our programs are there to finally end the cycle of long-term methadone use.
According to the Pew Charitable Trust,
“Opioid use disorder is a complex brain disease, but it is often still viewed as a moral failing. This stigma can keep people from accessing care for their disease, including medication-assisted treatment (MAT), which combines Food and Drug Administration-approved medications with behavioral therapies.”
About Our Medication Assisted Treatment Options
In conjunction with numerous clinical approaches to treating substance use disorder, your treatment team may prescribe FDA approved medications like suboxone during the detox phase for opioid use disorder and naltrexone after detox to curb cravings for alcohol and opioids. Naltrexone is a promising medication that has positive outcomes in conjunction with ongoing therapy. In addition to being non-narcotic, naltrexone has proven to significantly reduce the euphoric effects of opioids and alcohol and reduces cravings.
When you call Sobriety Options, our Admission Advisors can help answer your questions about the MAT Program before checking on your insurance benefits with your health insurance provider to determine if your policy will cover 100% of the cost of treatment. If it does, the next step in the process is for one of our medical and/our clinical staff members to do a brief assessment to determine if detox is required in your care and if the MAT program we offer will work for you. Then, one of our Admission Advisors will help arrange travel to and from our sister facilities just north of San Diego.
