Medication-Assisted Treatment

 

Are you struggling with opioid use? You are not alone. Millions of individuals in the United States are dependent on opiates- whether it is heroin or prescription narcotic medications. The National institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reports that 90 Americans die every day overdosing on opioids. Fentanyl, a synthetic opioid that is significantly more powerful than morphine, has hit the streets and is contributing to overdose deaths. It is no secret that America in the midst of an opioid crisis. Quitting opiates can be a frightening and uncomfortable experience due to the physical and emotional withdrawal symptoms, such as runny nose, stomach distress, chills and irritability- just to name a few. Sometimes relapses occur because individuals cannot manage the distressing withdrawal symptoms on their own. 

 

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT)—a combination of therapy and FDA-approved medication—is an extremely effective intervention to treat opioid use disorder. Medications like suboxone can significantly reduce illicit opioid use by blocking opioid receptors in the brain. In addition, cravings and withdrawal symptoms are also extinguished.

A clinician will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan that will help you grow and achieve your goals.
