Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)For those who struggle with addiction to opioids, medication-assisted treatment can be a useful tool on the road to recovery. While no medications can cure substance use disorders, several have been FDA-approved to treat withdrawal symptoms and help curb cravings.

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is a cornerstone of the personalized treatment plans we offer at Lotus Recovery Centers. When used in tandem with addiction treatment therapies, this approach can set our clients up for long-term recovery.

In addition, we keep the cost of rehab low for our clients. The cost of treatment shouldn’t be a barrier for those who are ready to overcome substance abuse issues. That’s why we accept Medicaid as well as private insurance.

How Medication-Assisted Treatment Works

MAT programs use pharmacological interventions (medication) along with behavioral interventions (counseling) to help those struggling with addiction. This approach helps clients focus on their journey to recovery with less physical discomfort than treatment programs that only use therapy.

There are several medications we use at Lotus Recovery Centers to help our clients heal. These include Suboxone, Vivitrol, and methadone (available only in our Prices Corner, DE location).

All of these medications work to reduce cravings, minimize withdrawal symptoms, and reduce the risk of relapse. However, they work in different ways:

  • Suboxone – Taken orally, this medication can block the effects of opioids while reducing withdrawal symptoms
  • Vivitrol – This once-a-month shot can treat both opioid and alcohol dependence by curbing cravings
  • Methadone – Used to treat opioid addiction, this medication can be taken each day to relieve pain and ease withdrawal symptoms

Your doctor will determine which medication is right for you and our clinical team will provide ongoing monitoring to ensure that you’re receiving the right dose.

The Benefits of Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opioid Addiction

Why do we offer medication-assisted treatment in our West Virginia and Delaware recovery centers? We believe that this approach to treatment offers the best chance at long-term recovery. MAT programs don’t just swap one drug for another. Instead, they help relieve the discomfort and cravings that can accompany the early days of recovery so that our clients can work through the underlying causes of addiction and develop healthy coping skills.

These medications can help those in addiction treatment programs by:

  • Relieving withdrawal symptoms
  • Curbing cravings
  • Helping clients focus on the underlying causes of addiction
  • Making the transition back to everyday life easier
  • Reducing the risk of overdose and relapse
  • Increasing treatment retention
  • Reducing the risks of criminal activity or infectious disease transmission
