Medication Assisted Treatment

Medicated Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of FDA approved medications, and in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a well-rounded approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. Research shows that a combination of medication and therapy can successfully treat these disorders, and for some people struggling with addiction, MAT can help sustain recovery.

A common misconception associated with MAT is that it substitutes one drug for another. Instead, these medications relieve the withdrawal symptoms and psychological cravings that cause chemical imbalances in the body. Medical Assisted Treatment programs provide a safe and controlled level of medication to overcome the use of an abused substance. And research has shown that when provided at the proper dose, medications used in MAT have no adverse effects on a person’s intelligence, mental capability, physical functioning, or employability.
