Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is one way to help those with opioid addiction recover their lives. Medication-assisted treatment for addiction includes the use of medication along with counseling and other support. MAT improves outcomes:

  • Saves lives!

  • More likely to stay in treatment

  • Decreases illicit opiate use and other criminal activity

  • Increases patient ability to gain and maintain employment

  • Improves birth outcomes among women with substance use disorders

If a person is addicted to opiates, medications such as Suboxone (buprenorphine-naloxone) allow them to regain a normal state of mind, free of drug-induced highs and lows. It frees the person from thinking all the time about the drug and reduces problems of withdrawal and craving. This gives the person the chance to focus on the lifestyle changes that lead back to healthy living. When properly dosed, there are no adverse effects on mental, intellectual, or physical functioning.

Taking medication for opioid addiction is like taking medication to control heart disease or diabetes. It is NOT the same as substituting one addictive drug for another. Used properly, the medication does NOT create a new addiction. It helps people manage their addiction so that the benefits of recovery can be maintained.

For MAT, our clinic uses Suboxone and other buprenorphine containing medications. We also offer Vivitrol, and naltrexone. We do not use Sublocade or methadone. The Department of Health and Human Services published a short pamphlet that explains MAT.  Click here for a download.
