Medication-Assisted Treatment

Detoxing from drugs or alcohol can be a difficult process physically, mentally and spiritually.

For many people struggling with addiction, the fear of withdrawal can be so overwhelming that they may not even want to attempt to get clean at all.

Recent studies show that individuals who have undergone a Medication-Assisted Treatment program for addiction or substance use disorder end up with better recovery rates than those who did not.

What is Medication-Assisted Treatment?

Medication-assisted treatment combines behavioral therapy with the use of certain medications that are approved by the FDA for treating common substance use disorders, such as opioid use disorder or alcohol use disorder.

The main purpose of medication-assisted treatment is to reduce the intense cravings that come during detox and alleviate some of the uncomfortable symptoms that are commonly associated with withdrawal from drugs or alcohol.
