MAT Addiction Treatment for Residents of Beverly Hills
Although our tailor-made drug and alcohol rehab programs at Muse Treatment are renowned for being highly effective in providing our clients with sustaining sobriety in recovery, sometimes certain people are resistant to some aspects of certain treatment modalities. At Muse Treatment we want to be able to assist everyone who comes to us for help with substance use disorder so they’ll succeed in achieving a long-lasting recovery from addiction.
This is why Muse Treatment offers a medically assisted treatment program for residents of Beverly Hills who require extra help to ensure relapse doesn’t occur in the months after recovery. Our medically assisted treatment (MAT) at Muse Treatment and Recovery Center is provided to our clients by our certified clinicians, who utilize FDA-approved medications in combination with therapy and counseling to get you through this period of recovery.
Certain addictive substances, such as heroin and prescription opioid drugs, can be difficult to stay away from once a physical dependency has set in. These substances, in addition to alcohol, when used over a long period of time, can cause permanent changes to take place in your brain. A chemical imbalance in the brain occurs as a result of addiction, which can make the usually successful addiction treatment methods for rehab less effective than desired.
MAT addiction treatment is available at Muse Treatment Center in Beverly Hills to help rebalance your brain chemicals and return them to normal functioning. MAT addiction therapy blocks the effects abusive substances have on your brain, which will greatly help in preventing relapse.
What Is MAT?
MAT is a treatment program available at Muse that’s designed to treat you on a long-term basis for help with controlling cravings that tend to linger in some patients, even after detox and rehab treatment has been successfully completed. With the use of substitute medications that replace the drugs or alcohol a client had been abusing, MAT helps to tamp down the urgent desire for those substances, with much less of a risk for a new addiction-forming or for relapse from occurring.
MAT is extremely helpful in case you are tempted to once again use the drugs or alcohol you’d become addicted to. Because of the medically assisted treatment program you’ve been a part of, a return to substance use won’t provide you with the usual effects you’d experienced in the past. In fact, in the case of alcohol addiction, trying to drink alcohol, while you’re receiving medications through our MAT program at Muse Treatment, can make you feel ill instead of the usual after-effects of drinking alcohol. You might even experience an immediate, unpleasant hangover if you have a drink during MAT therapy.
The medications used in MAT at Muse Treatment also aid in preventing an overdose from taking place. The drugs used in MAT block most of the euphoric effects that certain substances provide, such as opioids, which help in preventing an addiction relapse from occurring that can lead to a dangerous overdose.
MAT is not a simple treatment that replaces one dangerously addictive substance for another. The FDA-approved medications used in MAT at Muse Treatment cannot be abused and result in a new substance use disorder. They help in preventing relapse and overdoses while easing the symptoms of withdrawal that tend to linger in some clients. Our clinicians also only use MAT when other treatments and therapies have not provided our clients with long-term sobriety.
What to Expect During MAT
At Muse Treatment you can expect to experience positive results during MAT. Our program is individually designed for your unique needs to help you overcome your lingering withdrawal symptoms and cravings that can sometimes occur after rehab, interfering with your recovery.
We use medications in our MAT program at Muse Treatment that are approved by the Food and Drug Administration to help rebalance your brain chemicals and assist in your goals for achieving long-term sobriety. During your MAT program at Muse, we use different types of medication depending on the substance you’ve been abusing. For example, if you’re addicted to opioids, we prefer to use Suboxone or Subutex, which are buprenorphine-based medications.
These FDA-approved medications are not the only ingredient involved in MAT, however. You can also expect to participate in continued behavioral therapies and counseling to help ensure a positive, healthy recovery that will endure for the long term. Medically assisted treatment and therapy must take place at the same time, by law, for good reason. Without the add-on of professional counseling services, MAT could not be as effective a solution to addiction and recovery as it presently is.
In fact, our MAT program at Muse Treatment for Beverly Hills residents is so successful that it aids you in becoming much more receptive to the behavioral therapy you’ll receive in conjunction with the medication. Becoming more open-minded and responsive to behavioral therapy for addiction can unlock the most important key to your achievement of a sustainable recovery.
MAT used in conjunction with therapy goes well with our whole-person approach to recovery at Muse Treatment in general. We don’t simply aim to treat your physical issues with addiction; we also want to address the important reasons that lie behind your addictive behaviors and also examine whether you suffer from any co-existing mental health disorders, which can also be treated by our certified clinicians.
