MAT CLINICS IN DELAWARE

The fight against the opioid crisis in Delaware takes commitment and approaches to treatment that are based on research. One way that BrightView is helping Delaware residents heal is through medication-assisted treatment (MAT),  a treatment method that offers an alternative to traditional inpatient rehab. This approach is ideal for those with opioid use disorders who are at a higher risk for relapse. Medication assisted treatment can reduce cravings and ease withdrawal symptoms, helping those in recovery focus therapy and counseling.

If you’re ready to overcome an opioid use disorder or you’re concerned for a loved one, connect with BrightView today to learn more about medication assisted treatment in Delaware.

HOW DOES A MAT PROGRAM WORK?

MAT programs can make it easier for those in recovery to stay in treatment and reach a place of stability. Addiction involves feelings of pleasure and reward. While the brain releases chemicals that provide feelings of pleasure every day, opioids and other addictive substances cause a massive rush of these neurochemicals. Over time, as an individual continues to use opioids, they’ll develop a dependency on the substance as they’re unable to produce these neurochemicals without it. Feelings of reward are inextricably linked to substance use, and this leads to both physical and psychological dependency.

Medication assisted treatment helps treat the severe withdrawal symptoms that can come with stopping the use of opioids. Going through this process with medical support and the help of certain FDA-approved medications can help those battling opioid use disorder build a strong foundation for recovery.

THE BENEFITS OF MEDICATION ASSISTED TREATMENT

When used alongside approaches like group or individual therapy, medication assisted treatment can be highly effective, especially for opioid and alcohol use disorders. Addiction is isolating and destructive, and it’s impacted families and communities throughout Delaware and beyond. Medication assisted treatment can provide hope and healing.

A few of the benefits of MAT programs include:

  • MAT can safely alleviate withdrawal symptoms
  • Those who participate in MAT tend to stay in treatment longer
  • MAT makes patients less likely to overdose
  • MAT can reduce the risk of relapse

Medication assisted treatment is based on research and decades of experience. This clinical approach to opioid addiction might be right for you if you’re facing a treatment-resistant opioid use disorder.

MEDICATIONS USED IN OUR DELAWARE CLINICS

Suboxone

Suboxone is commonly used to treat opioid addiction. This medication is made up of buprenorphine and naloxone, and can decrease the severity of withdrawal symptoms. Over time, the use of Suboxone can help those battling opioid addiction become less reliant on drugs like fentanyl, heroin, and carfentanil. Opioid withdrawal can be severe, but Suboxone can reduce these symptoms and help those in recovery focus on overcoming the underlying causes of addiction.

Vivitrol

Vivitrol is an extended-release injection. Each dose of Vivitrol can last for up to 30 days. This medication can reduce cravings for both opioids and alcohol, which can help prevent relapse for those in recovery. Vivitrol is approved for those who have reached a place of stability and who have not used alcohol or opioids for at least a week. Those who are transitioning from Suboxone or methadone might need to wait before beginning a treatment plan involving Vivitrol. However, our team can assist in customizing a treatment plan that’s right for you.

SUBLOCADE

SUBLOCADE contains buprenorphine and can be used in the treatment of opioid addiction. This medication is prescribed to those who have already begun recovery with a Suboxone prescription. This once-a-month injection can relieve chronic pain as well as opioid cravings, helping those in recovery focus on treatment.
