What is Medication Assisted Treatment?

What is Medication Assisted Therapy (MAT)? Who is it for? Is it possible to sign up for medically-assisted treatment (MAT)? These are common questions that people ask when they learn about MAT. This may be the best option to help them recover from their substance abuse. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration describes MAT therapy as a combination of counseling, medication, and behavioral therapy that combats substance abuse. It is also very effective against opioid addiction, as well as a range of other drug detoxes.

Medication to Ease Suffering

MAT therapy is a treatment that uses medication to help people suffering from substance abuse disorder overcome their addiction. This treatment uses medication to reduce their desire for the specific substance they choose. Medically assisted treatment does not treat a drug problem by replacing it with another drug.

The Medically Assisted Treatment program helps people live a sober and clean life. Counseling and behavioral therapy are combined to identify the root cause of addiction and prevent relapse. To help with withdrawal and other symptoms, medication is a part of the treatment plan.

It is important that you remember that every person will have a treatment that suits them best. You may have a variety of options. You can reach out to a doctor if you have any questions. They will help you decide which options are best for you and your loved ones.

Drugs Used in Medically Assisted Treatment Therapy

Medically Assisted Treatment is based on three main drugs. You can see them below:
• Vivitrol
• Naltrexone
• Methadone

Each of these drugs has a purpose and an addiction that they can help with during MAT Therapy. They have been approved by the FDA and come in a variety of forms to suit each person’s individual needs. These drugs can also be used in medically assisted treatments. To find new drugs or medicines, people conduct research. MAT Therapy is one of the most effective methods to combat addiction. To help those suffering from addiction, further studies are ongoing, and new drugs are being developed.
