How Medicated-Assisted Treatment Helps Combat Addiction
Medication-assisted treatment combats substance use disorders with a combination of behavioral therapy and medications. Some of the medications we leverage in the MAT process at New Life are Vivitrol®, suboxone and naltrexone.
The process of weaning off a substance can be extremely difficult and potentially dangerous. MAT helps combat the withdrawal symptoms and can drastically reduce psychological cravings. When used in a safe environment, MAT has been shown to have no negative effects on physical functions, intelligence, mental capability or employability.
