Learn about Inspiration health addiction Treatment center medication treatments.
Medication-Assisted Treatment or “MAT” is a method of treatment using a combination of medicine to combat Substance Use Disorders.
MAT clinics primarily treat opioids and alcohol, as medicines have been created to combat these substances specifically. Other substances such as amphetamines, cocaine, depressants, stimulants, and synthetics can also be treated with Medication Assisted Treatment; in these instances, the physician may prescribe various medicines to alleviate the symptoms caused by these drugs during the withdrawal process.
The combination of Buprenorphine and Naloxone is prescribed together in the form of Suboxone Buprenorphine not only treats the withdrawal symptoms from opiates but can also be used in conjunction with Naloxone for long term maintenance. Naloxone helps prevent misuse of the medication and is an effective blocker for opiates while undergoing treatment.
Some of the most common drugs used to treat alcohol use disorder are Vivitrol/Naltrexone, Acamprosate, and Disulfiram.
Vivitrol/Naltrexone – blocks the euphoric effects and feelings of intoxication and allows people with alcohol use disorders to reduce alcohol use and to remain motivated to continue to take the medication, stay in treatment, and avoid relapses. Vivitrol is given in the form of an injection and it is time released so a person only needs an injection every 28 days making it easier for persons in recovery.
