Improving Addiction Treatment with Medication-Assisted Therapy

What You Need to Know About MAT

For those struggling with addiction, finding the right treatment can be difficult. However, medication-assisted therapy is a viable option that has shown promise. By combining FDA-approved medications, counseling, and behavioral therapy, this approach can help alleviate cravings and withdrawal symptoms. This allows patients to focus on their recovery efforts and overcome their addiction.

While primarily used to treat opioid abuse, medication-assisted therapy can also be beneficial for those struggling with alcohol or other substance misuse. Utilizing this method can give individuals a better chance of regaining control of their lives and overcoming addiction.

Exploring the Benefits of Medication-Assisted Therapy (MAT) for Substance Abuse

Medication-assisted therapy (MAT) is a treatment option that has proven effective for those battling substance addiction. When combined with other programs, such as inpatient rehabilitation or outpatient care, MAT can increase the likelihood of individuals overcoming addiction and avoiding relapse.

Considering the statistics show that between 30-50% of people in recovery may relapse, MAT has emerged as an additional tool to reduce the risk of relapse. The primary goals of MAT are to:

  • Lower the rate of drug and alcohol-related fatalities
  • Reduce the number of people who fail to complete their treatment programs
  • Decrease drug use, especially opiates, among those struggling with addiction
  • Enhance an individual’s ability to perform daily activities, such as work or school
  • Improve birth outcomes for pregnant women dealing with addiction.

Exploring Your Options: Understanding Medications for Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

Medications used in MAT are approved by the FDA and carefully selected to meet individual needs. This treatment approach is commonly used for individuals with alcohol or opioid use disorders. Those struggling with pain medication or heroin addiction are among the most common cases of opioid use disorders.

For those with alcohol addiction, acamprosate, disulfiram, and naltrexone are the primary medications used. Alcohol addiction affects the way the brain functions, thus acamprosate is used to help restore the brain to its prior state. Disulfiram, however, produces negative effects when alcohol is consumed, such as headaches, nausea, vomiting, and anxiety. Although effective, taking disulfiram requires consent from the individual and must be administered as prescribed.

Naltrexone is a medication used to reduce alcohol cravings and block opioid effects. If there are opioids in the individual’s system when naltrexone is first administered, withdrawal symptoms may occur. This medication can be taken orally daily or through an injection administered every four weeks by a healthcare professional.

Buprenorphine, methadone, and naltrexone can all be used as part of MAT for individuals with substance abuse disorders. Methadone, a controlled substance, is used to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms, as well as block opioid effects. Buprenorphine is also effective in reducing opioid dependence, with a lower rate of misuse when compared to methadone. Naloxone, however, is used to reverse opioid overdose effects in emergencies and can be administered through various methods such as nasal spray or injection.

It is recommended to have naloxone on hand in case of an emergency if you or a loved one is struggling with opioid addiction. Knowing about the different medication options for MAT can help individuals achieve long-term recovery.
