Struggling with an addiction can make a person feel as if their entire world is turning upside down. Many people who have an addiction to drugs or alcohol do not know where to start getting help. It is crucial for everyone to know there are treatments available. MAT is one of the options. Many people care about what you are going through. Make the call to get into a treatment program today.
Defining Medication Assisted Treatment
The Medication Assisted Treatment Program is also known as the MAT program. This type of treatment uses a combination of MAT drugs and counseling to help people continue their recovery. Research has shown that MAT programs are effective for overcoming addiction and building a recovering lifestyle.
People should use the Medication Assisted Treatment Program earlier in their recovery. The MAT drugs can help to ease cravings and reduce the risk of relapsing. When someone uses opioid blockers, the risk of relapsing reduces even more.
If you are struggling with an addiction, you should reach out to the MAT team today. Talking about your addiction, history, and other details of your life can help the team better structure your treatment plan. Not everyone will need the same medications or dosage. The treatment plan we make for you will meet your recovery needs.
A Safe Treatment Option
Many people try recovering from addiction on their own. However, the risk of relapsing is so high because the process of overcoming addiction can be painful and challenging. Don’t let this discourage you.
Some programs can help you to be more comfortable while getting sober and when recovering from an addiction. Our Medication Assisted Treatment Program is a great choice. It is a safe way for you to overcome addiction and build on your recovery.
Research shows that Medication Assisted Treatment Programs combine various medications to ease withdrawal symptoms and help with recovery. The medications given are proven to be safe for recovery from drugs or alcohol.
A MAT Program Can Reduce the Risk of Overdose
If people attend an inpatient treatment program, they usually go 30 to 90 days without using any drugs. If they relapse when they are home from treatment, their risk of overdosing is higher than before they went to treatment. The reason for this is because their body has been without drugs for a significant amount of time. The body does not know how to react to the drugs now.
This one of the reasons that MAT programs have helped so many overcome opioid addiction. When taking certain medications, you won’t have as many drug cravings. There are other medications that can help with the cravings you do have.
If you are struggling with substance use, this might be the best type of program for you. If you aren’t sure whether to enroll in this treatment, you can call today. Speaking to someone at the MAT program might help you determine if this treatment will work for you.
Improving Your Social Life
The addiction recovery process can be tough. When dealing with cravings and withdrawal symptoms, you may find it challenging to get out of bed. Some people who are recovering from addiction do not want to leave their house.
However, if you attend a Medication Assisted Treatment Program, you can receive help with your cravings and withdrawal symptoms. You will be working with a treatment coordinator, doctor and other medical personnel to determine which medications work best.
The medications our team prescribes can help you to manage your life better. Your social life will be notably better, as well. The reasons for this are:
- Fewer cravings will mean having more energy to do activities and go to events
- Having less discomfort means more motivation to hang out with friends
- Being able to handle your recovery better allows you to build stronger relationships with friends and family members
As you can see, the MAT program can benefit your social life in numerous ways. Now that you know this, it may motivate you to start this program sooner.
Reducing the Risk of Recovery-Related Issues
Many people have trouble with withdrawal symptoms, cravings and other obstacles in their recovery. These troubles especially happen when trying to overcome addiction by themselves. If this happens in your recovery, you may be less likely to commit to your recovery. It does not have to go like that. You can turn your life around.
Our Southeast Addiction Center team wants to help you stick with your recovery. MAT drugs can make you more comfortable. The more comfortable you are, the more emotionally, mentally and physically stable you will be in your recovery.
