No matter what your addiction may be, the question “Can I really beat it?” will always ring true.
One thing that all addicts seem to agree on is how difficult this journey towards sobriety can be for someone who has hit rock bottom and wants desperately to get clean – but isn’t sure if they’ll succeed because of their past mistakes or relapses along the way.
What is Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)?
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of medications in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, which is effective in the treatment of opioid use disorders (OUD) and can help some people to sustain recovery.
For some people though; medication-assisted treatment (MAT) might just offer them hope when nothing else does: with a combination of psychotherapy sessions in addition to their chosen MAT drug regimen–medication helps heal mental health issues.
Why are MATs important for addiction recovery and what do they treat specifically?
Research shows that MAT significantly increases a patient’s adherence to treatment and reduces illicit opioid use compared with non-drug approaches. By reducing risk behaviors such as injection of illicit drugs, it also decreases transmission of infectious diseases such as HIV and hepatitis C
How does MAT work to help people with addiction recover from it?
Methadone and buprenorphine work by tricking the brain into thinking it’s receiving the abused drug. Patients do not experience the intense “high” produced by their former drug of choice, but these medications do prevent withdrawal symptoms that would otherwise occur as addiction subsides and substances clear the body.
Addiction is a difficult problem to overcome. It often requires an individualized approach that includes medication, therapy, and other treatments in addition to the support of family members or friends. One treatment option for addiction is MAT (medication-assisted treatment). This type of care combines medical interventions with behavioral therapies to help patients manage their disease more effectively while they work on rebuilding their lives without drugs.
