Medicated Assisted Treatment
Opioid addiction is a serious problem in North American. 115 people pass away every day from opioid overdoes in the US alone.
If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction, you’re not alone in the fight. Healthcare professionals across the country have been working to develop new physical, chemical, and psychological tools to help those people fight opioid addiction.
One of those tools is Medicated Assisted Treatment.
Medication-assisted treatment or MAT, combats substance use disorders with a combination of behavioral therapy and medications. Some of the medications that can be leveraged in the MAT process are methadone, naltrexone and buprenorphine.
How Medicated Assisted Treatment Helps Combat Addiction
The process of weaning off a substance can be extremely difficult and potentially dangerous. MAT helps to combat the withdrawal symptoms and can drastically reduce psychological cravings. When used in a safe environment, medicated assisted treatment has been shown to have no negative effects on physical functions, intelligence, mental capability or employability.
