Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)

 

doctor welcoming patient to officeIndividuals in an Outpatient level of care who are seeking Medication Assisted Treatment are able to meet with a medical provider for an assessment to determine if Medication Assisted Treatment would be beneficial.

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) combines behavioral therapy and medications to treat substance use addiction. Some individuals with opioid (and other) addictions could include FDA-approved medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a “whole-patient” approach in the treatment of substance use addiction.

Valor's Outpatient MAT program is clinically driven and tailored to meet each client's needs. Treatments include FDA-approved medications such as products containing Naltrexone (oral Naltrexone or Vivitrol) and Buprenorphine products (i.e.. Suboxone) as prescribed by our medical professionals, and included as part of an overall outpatient treatment program.

MAT is primarily used for the treatment of addiction to opioids, which includes heroin and prescription pain relievers that contain opiates.  MAT can also be used for alcohol cravings.   Medication Assisted Treatment can normalize brain chemistry, block the euphoric effects of opioids, relieve physiological cravings, and normalize body functions.

A combination of medication and therapy can successfully treat many people with substance use disorders. MAT can also help some people sustain recovery.

MAT has been shown to have many benefits including improving patient survival, increasing retention in treatment, increasing patients' ability to gain and maintain employment, and improving birth outcomes for women who have substance use disorders and are pregnant.

The ultimate goal of Valor Recovery Center’s MAT program is full recovery, including the ability for clients to live a sober, self-directed life.
