MAT Addiction Treatment for Residents of Fresno
Even if you know deep down that you need to seek help with your drug addiction or alcohol use, you may be reluctant to get the assistance you need. You may intuitively know that your friends and family members are right when they say you have a problem, and that their efforts to get you to accept their offers of drug rehab have been made in good faith.
At the same time you may worry about what the future will hold once you accept those well meaning offers of help. You may fear, for instance, the pain of detox and withdrawal, and you may wonder if your body, and your mind, will be strong enough to withstand it.
At Muse Treatment we understand all of those fears and concerns, and many of us have been where you are right now. We know that you have probably tried to stop drinking or using drugs a time or two – or more. We know that you may have attempted to detox on your own, or with the help of a well meaning but ultimately ill prepared friend or family member.
We know that those earlier attempts at DIY detox have probably ended in failure and that every failed attempt at getting better left you with a shattered sense of confidence and increased fears that your current situation will become permanent. We know all of those things, but we also know that there is a better and more effective way forward.
What is MAT?
That better way is known as medically assisted treatment, or MAT for short, and it can be a true game changer for those who have been suffering under the weight of their drug addictions and unable to overcome their dependencies on their own. Through the MAT approach to detox, you can enjoy the best of both worlds, giving your body the time it needs to heal without succumbing to the extreme pain and discomfort that withdrawal so often brings.
At the heart of the MAT experience are a number of specialized prescription medications, drugs that can ease the pain of withdrawal in a gentle, safe and predictable manner. Some of these drugs include naloxone suboxone, unique medications that interfere with the way both legal and illegal drugs interact with the brain and the body.
Throughout the MAT protocol, our number one goal is to keep you safe and comfortable, giving you a head start on the recovery you deserve and helping you build a better, safer and healthier life going forward.
What to Expect During MAT?
As you can see the medically assisted treatment (MAT) protocol has a great deal to offer those who suffer from drug addiction and substance use disorder, but many of those individuals are totally unfamiliar with what it is and how it works. That unfamiliarity can create fear and uncertainty, and even hesitation when it comes to getting started.
If you think that the MAT approach to detox, withdrawal and recovery is the right choice for you, the next step is to learn about the process, so you will know what to expect when you leave your home in Fresno and walk through our doors for the first time.
When you choose to use the MAT protocol to aid in your recovery, you will first undergo a thorough medical examination, and this will serve as an important first step on your road to a more comfortable form of detox. Our expert team of doctors and nurses will evaluate your health carefully, and they will use the information they gain to create a customized form of healing just for you.
Once the initial medical evaluation has been concluded, we will begin the MAT process in earnest, arming you with the specialized medications that will make your journey through detox gentler and easier to take. This process can reduce the pain and discomfort of withdrawal, giving your body the time and space it needs to heal itself from the inside out and preparing you for the next steps on your path to recovery.
The medical team at Muse will continue to monitor you throughout your MAT journey, carefully fine tuning the treatment protocol along the way to preserve your safety and your comfort. And since the peak of the withdrawal symptoms you will still experience typically occurs within the first few days, you can be on the road to healing in less time than you think.
If you are ready to get started with your journey to recovery, we encourage you to check out the many benefits the medically assisted treatment approach can provide. At Muse, we are leaders in the MAT field, so you can rely on us to help you every step along the way.
