What are Opioids?
When used as your doctor instructed you to, opioid painkillers are a safe way to treat severe pain, like the pain you feel after surgery. But there are risks if the medicines are used incorrectly. When opioid drugs travel through your blood and attach to opioid receptors in the cells of your brain, the cells send out signals that make you feel less pain and more pleasure.
At lower doses, opioids may make you feel sleepy, but at higher doses, they can slow your breathing and heart rate, which can cause death. And the pleasure you feel when you take an opioid can make you want to keep feeling that way, which can lead to addiction.
Short-Term and Long-Term Effects of Opioids
When you keep taking opioids over time, your body slows the process of making endorphins. The same amount of opioids no longer makes you feel so good all at once, which is called “tolerance.” One reason why opioid addiction is so common is that when people build up a tolerance, they may feel compelled to take more of the drug to keep feeling good.
Some people who use opioids and think they need more start to get opioids or heroin from people they shouldn’t. Some drugs that are bought illegally, like fentanyl, are laced with dangerous chemicals or much stronger opioids. Because of how strong fentanyl is, this combination has been linked to a large number of deaths among heroin users.
What is Medication-Assisted Treatment?
Medication-assisted treatment is the use of medications along with counseling and behavioral therapies to treat substance use disorders in a way that takes into account the “whole patient.” The FDA has approved the medicines used in MAT, and each patient’s needs are taken into account when designing MAT programs. Research has shown that a combination of medication and therapy is an effective way to treat these disorders. For some people with addiction, MAT can also help them stay sober, and it is also used to stop or lessen the effects of an opioid overdose.
Is MAT Effective?
MAT has been shown to be effective in clinical settings and to make these people much less likely to need inpatient detox services. MAT gives patients a more complete, individualized program of medication and behavioral therapy that meets most of their needs.
The end goal of MAT is full recovery, which includes being able to live on one’s own. This kind of treatment has been shown to:
- Improve patient survival
- Keep more people in treatment
- Reduce the number of people with substance use disorders who use opiates illegally and commit other crimes
- Make it easier for patients to find and keep a job
- Help women who are pregnant and have a problem with drugs have better birth outcomes
