What Is Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)?
Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) is an evidence-based treatment approach that is used in conjunction with traditional counseling and other therapies. MAT provides relief of the physical symptoms associated with drug or alcohol withdrawal. Counseling alone may help change an individual’s attitude towards substance use, but it is often more effective when combined with MAT.
Types of Medications Used in MAT
The FDA has approved these medications for use in Medication Assisted Treatment:
Rehab After Work provides naltrexone injections under the brand name Vivitrol.
What is Vivitrol?
Vivitrol is the first non-narcotic, non-addictive, extended release medication approved for the treatment of opioid dependence. It is administered via injection and blocks the intense high associated with opioid use, which often leads to addiction and physical dependence. Vivitrol can prevent relapse by eliminating the pleasurable feeling that comes with using opioids.
Vivitrol is administered with a monthly shot and requires outpatient counseling with a Rehab After Work therapist.
Is Medication Assisted Treatment Right for You?
Medication Assisted Treatment may be a good fit for you if:
- You have already completely detoxed from alcohol and opioids. Your detox process must contain a minimum of 3 to 7 days.
- You do not have any opioids in your system; otherwise, you may experience withdrawal symptoms.
- You do not have acute hepatitis or liver failure.
