MAT Apps for Android and iPhone: Helping Patients and Suboxone Doctors August 31, 2018 0 Addiction Treatment

There are many obstacles faced by opiate addicts and the suboxone doctors who try to help them recover. Because of the soaring rates of opiate overdose deaths, treatment providers must do whatever is necessary to reach out to addicts and encourage them to seek professional help. With the popularity of androids and iPhones, many providers are considering using a cell phone app to assist their patients in recovery, but will it work?

What Kind of App Will Work for Suboxone Doctors and Patients?

Nowadays, there is an app for everything from diabetes to healthy living, why not one for people to use while going through medication-assisted treatment? People in recovery from opiate addiction could benefit from an app that provides features and information that is supportive of their recovery. An app could also be beneficial to a suboxone doctor because it would allow them to be more in touch with patients and provide useful tips for avoiding relapse and sustaining recovery.

What Kinds of Information Would be Available on a Recovery App?

Because medication-assisted treatment may be a likely part of someone’s recovery, a patient may need information concerning drug interactions and side effect information about suboxone, buprenorphine and naltrexone. With an app for these purposes, a patient will have access to the information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A MAT app would give a person access to education, treatment information from their suboxone doctor, as well as tips, facts and worksheets on how to deal with common questions and issues that may come up during recovery.

How Can a MAT app Make a Difference in Treating Opiate Addiction?

Many suboxone doctors want to make a difference in the lives of their patients and with a MAT app, it would allow them to do more.  Our program wants to keep one step ahead of the latest developments in the world of addiction treatment, so we will be exploring the possibility of adding an app for our patients to use.
