What Makes Medication-assisted treatment Successful?

Medication-assisted rehab combines medications and behavioral therapy to treat someone who has an addiction to opiates. The use of certain types of medication have become central to MAT programs and it is integral to treating addiction to drugs like heroin, Vicodin, Oxycontin, and others. MAT addresses opiate dependence controls cravings, reduces withdrawal symptoms and it is done while being supervised by a licensed suboxone doctor. Medication-assisted treatment is successful because it helps someone become stabilized, allows the person to think healthy thoughts and can prevent relapse.

How Long Does MAT Last?

While MAT primarily addresses acute withdrawal symptoms, the length of time someone uses these services will vary. Most of the intense withdrawal symptoms that result from opiate cessation are controlled by medication, and a suboxone doctor will initiate a tapering schedule designed to gradually wean a person off opiates completely. The goal of having someone taper down from suboxone is a decision to be made at the discretion of the doctor, after taking the patients’ needs into consideration.
