The medication-assisted treatment program treats opioid use disorder and works towards sustained recovery.
Addiction is a chronic brain disease in which a person regularly finds and uses drugs, or regularly does something (such as gambling) despite the negative things that can happen. It is a brain disease because addiction can change how the brain works. Besides harming a person’s health, it can change how someone thinks and feels. This may last a long time, lead to other harmful actions, and cause difficult relationships with family and friends. Without treatment and recovery, addiction may keep getting worse.
The MAT Program offers two different medications to treat opioid dependence – Suboxone or Vivitrol. After becoming stabilized on the medication, a therapy component is introduced to the treatment plan.
