What is Medication Assisted Treatment?

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is a progressive approach to addiction recovery that integrates the use of FDA-approved medications with comprehensive behavioral therapies. Here at Total Recovery Medical Center, we embrace MAT as a cornerstone of our treatment philosophy, recognizing that addiction is a complex but treatable disease that affects brain function and behavior. Our MAT program is designed to support individuals in achieving long-term recovery by alleviating withdrawal symptoms, reducing cravings, and addressing the psychological aspects of addiction. By combining medication with counseling and behavioral therapies, we aim to treat the whole person, not just the addiction. Our approach is grounded in the latest scientific research and adheres to best practices in addiction medicine, offering a path to recovery that is both compassionate and effective. Whether you’re battling opioid, alcohol, or other substance use disorders, our dedicated team is here to support you every step of the way on your journey to health and wellness.

How does Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) Work?

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) integrates medications with counseling and behavioral therapies to treat substance use disorders. MAT aims to provide a “whole-patient” approach to substance use disorder treatment.

Each patient will receive a comprehensive evaluation to determine the severity of the substance use disorder and any co-occurring mental health conditions. If MAT is deemed suitable, the next step involves selecting the right medication for the individual’s specific needs. MAT is most effective when the medication component is integrated with counseling and behavioral therapies.

The goal of MAT is not just to treat the physical aspects of addiction but also to address the psychological, social, and behavioral issues associated with substance use disorders. By providing a comprehensive and individualized approach, MAT can significantly improve outcomes for individuals struggling with addiction, helping them to achieve and maintain recovery.
