Providing a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders
How Does MAT Work?
Research shows that a combination of medication and therapy can successfully treat opioid disorders, and for some people struggling with addiction, MAT can help sustain recovery and prevent or reduce opioid overdose.
The prescribed medication operates to normalize brain chemistry, block the euphoric effects of alcohol and opioids, relieve physiological cravings, and normalize body functions without the negative and euphoric effects of the substance used.
Medications used in MAT are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and MAT programs are clinically driven and tailored to meet each patient’s needs.
