The use of medication assisted treatment (MAT) along with evidence-based behavioral therapy sessions can be a solution to helping those struggling with addiction. One of the most used medications in MAT programs is methadone. To begin your recovery journey, reach out to BrightView today by calling 8335104357!

What is medication assisted treatment (MAT)?

MAT provides a comprehensive approach to the treatment of substance use disorders (SUDs) with the use of medication and therapy. Medications in MAT normalize brain chemistry and body functions, block the euphoric effects of substances, minimize withdrawal symptoms and relieve cravings. MAT programs have been shown to:

  • DECREASE: Illicit substance use and criminal activity
  • IMPROVE: Birth outcomes for pregnant women with SUD, chances of a patient’s survival, and chances of recovery success
  • INCREASE: Ability to gain and maintain employment

Methadone treatment is one option within an MAT program. Not every person is the same, therefore, methadone might not be the best option for everyone. Other medications typically provided include Suboxone or Vivitrol.
