What is MAT Treatment?
Medication-Assisted Treatment, or MAT, is the use of medications along with counseling and other forms of therapy to treat substance use disorders in a way that helps our patients as a whole.
Medication takes care of the chemical imbalances in the body that are caused by withdrawal symptoms and psychological cravings, while behavior therapy and counseling assist with the emotional underlying cause of the start of the addiction. When given in the right amount, research has shown that medications used in MAT don’t hurt a person’s intelligence, mental abilities, or physical functioning.
What is a Suboxone® Clinic?
Suboxone clinics are medication-assisted treatment or MAT facilities. These outpatient rehab centers treat opioid addiction with both behavioral therapy and prescription drugs. To keep you from going back to using drugs, our doctors here at Recovery Connection prescribe buprenorphine-based drugs like Suboxone with a combination of behavioral therapy to help you get back to a healthy way of life.
How Does Suboxone Treatment Work?
When someone takes pain pills or heroin, the drug attaches to receptors in the brain and when all of the receptors are “occupied” by opioids, the brain doesn’t feel as much pain. Only part of the same receptors are filled by Suboxone and other buprenorphine products, so patients don’t get the same high from buprenorphine as they would from painkillers or illegal drugs, but it does satisfy the receptors enough to stop cravings and stop withdrawal symptoms.
For Suboxone treatment, you take a dose of Suboxone every day instead of pain pills or opioids you get on the street. Behavior therapy is also an important part of treatment with Suboxone. With Recovery Connection, our counselors are assigned to our patients based on their needs, and they work with them to deal with the emotional problems that lead to addiction. Overall, it has been shown that medication-assisted treatment works best in the long run.
Is MAT Treatment Right for You?
Medication-assisted treatment with Suboxone and other buprenorphine medications is very effective for people who are addicted to opioids. If you have been diagnosed with an opioid use disorder, you are likely a good candidate for treatment. It’s important to remember that drinking alcohol or taking benzodiazepines while on Suboxone can be dangerous, and if you use either of these while taking Suboxone, you are more likely to have respiratory failure.
Suboxone treatment replaces pain pills or illegal opioids with a drug that is prescribed by one of our doctors here at Recovery Connection. This partially fills the opioid receptors in your brain, and because it doesn’t completely fill the receptors, patients don’t continue to build a tolerance. Once a patient is stable on their medication, they can start to put their lives back together with the help of our behavioral counselors and their doctors as a team.
