Substance abuse and addiction is more than just a habit. Aside from the mental and emotional aspects of addiction, many people are physically dependent too.
Medication assisted treatment or MAT can help patients who are struggling to escape physical symptoms of addiction.
The medication assisted treatment team at Faith Recovery Center monitors patients carefully as they are weaned off addictive substances with safe and approved medication based treatments.
If you or your loved one are afraid of the physical side effects of recovery, our medication assisted treatment team can help. So, ask our admissions team for more information when you call.
There are several safe, FDA approved medications that can be used to treat addiction and substance abuse. Naltrexone and Buprenorphine are two of the medications our team can use to support our patients’ recovery.
These medications are safe when administered and monitored by our professional medical team, and they can make many of the physical effects of detoxing and addiction recovery a lot more manageable.
MAT, or Medically Assisted Treatment is a controlled regimen of FDA approved medications that are used in the treatment of addiction disorders.
These drugs are administered by a medical team in carefully calculated doses that are gradually decreased over time. This allows the patients of Faith Recovery Center who need them to slowly and gradually break free of the need for substances.
If you or your loved one have struggled to cope with detoxing or giving up their substance of choice in the past, they might need a little extra help to make this important step.
Patients who choose MAT are under the care of the medical team at all times. Their health and response to the medication are monitored carefully.
Medication doses are gradually decreased, allowing the patient to ease into sobriety gently.
Detox is an intense part of the addiction treatment process that usually happens at the start of the process.
Once patients have completed detox, whether medically assisted or not, they are through the worst of the process, but that does not mean they are no longer addicted.
Medically assisted treatment helps patients who have completed detox to continue their recovery slowly and gradually. This allows them to focus on mental and emotional recovery as well as breaking their physical addiction.
If you’re not sure whether you or a loved one need medically assisted detox, medically assisted treatment or something else, our team can help. Let’s talk.
