MAT Addiction Treatment for Residents of Newport Beach
There are times when even the best-known methods of treatment for addiction can not prevent substance relapse. A person in recovery may be struggling with additional issues that could be making it difficult for them to maintain their sobriety such as a brain imbalance that causes them to struggle to feel pleasure. Thankfully, there is a treatment option that can help to sustain recovery and restore brain function called medically-assisted treatment (MAT).
To help combat the high relapse rates for people in their first year of recovery from addiction, which is between 40 and 60 percent, programs such as MAT should be used. It will give you a way to sustain your recovery and prevent relapse that combines the benefits of therapy with the benefits of medication. Our MAT addiction treatment for residents of Newport Beach can be your key to unlocking sustainable recovery from addiction.
Muse Treatment always strives to deliver the best level of care possible for addiction. We understand the difficulties that are present in the life of recovering people. Our MAT program is just one of the ways in which we go above and beyond to provide our clients with the best possible care to help them to overcome addiction for good.
What is MAT?
MAT, or medically-assisted treatment, is a program that we offer at Muse Treatment and Recovery Center. It combines the benefits of evidence-based treatment with the positive effects that certain medications can have on a recovering person. In our MAT program for residents of Newport Beach, you will be given medication that prevents drugs and alcohol from having an effect and works to restore your brain function to a normal state.
Oftentimes, drugs such as heroin can have a lasting effect on your brain. You may struggle to feel any sense of pleasure because of the damage that heroin caused. Your brain may not produce enough feel-good, reward-based chemicals and as a result, you may struggle to assert yourself and your recovery goals. The medications that we provide, however, help to normalize brain function again which not only helps you to feel normal again but also increases the effectiveness of behavioral therapy.
Behavioral therapy will be a part of your medically-assisted treatment program, which is required by law. As a long-term treatment solution, the medications that you receive during MAT treatment do not treat the underlying causes of your addiction but rather help to restore brain function and prevent relapse. It is through the addition of evidence-based behavioral therapy that the profound changes that will help you to maintain your sobriety in the long-term and improved wellbeing will come from.
Medically-assisted treatment programs help to prevent the loss of life. When a person stops using drugs such as heroin or prescription pain relievers, then their tolerance to the drug lowers greatly. If, however, relapse occurs, then there is a significant risk that the person has an overdose. Their lowered tolerance can make the person unaware of just how great of an effect the same doses of the drug can have. Therefore, MAT programs can help to prevent overdose because the effects of drugs such as opioids are blocked and because MAT programs help to prevent relapse in the first place by normalizing brain function and managing cravings.
What to Expect During MAT?
In our medically-assisted treatment program for residents of Newport Beach, you can expect to receive treatment for drug and alcohol addiction with many of the usual elements of an accredited program with the added benefits of MAT. At Muse, you can expect to have a personalized treatment plan made for you when you first start treatment. Your unique recovery needs will help us to create an ideal treatment plan for you.
You can expect to go through a medical detox program, too. While MAT programs use medication and behavioral therapy as a long-term treatment solution, medical detox programs use medication to manage the severe withdrawal symptoms expected after stopping substance abuse and due to the round-the-clock monitoring of your health, the process is safe.
Many of the effective treatment programs that address the person as a whole, or holistic treatments, will be a part of your treatment plan. These programs include our neuro-rehabilitation program and dual diagnosis treatment. By treating areas of importance such as co-occurring mental health disorders, Muse will help treat the indirect underlying causes of your addiction.
In our medically-assisted treatment program for Newport Beach residents, you can expect to undergo behavioral therapy alongside the medications that you will continue to take as a part of your MAT program. Behavioral therapies that are based on years of evidence and scientific research will help you to go through the profound positive changes that you need to sustain your recovery.
The medications that you can expect to be given for opioid addiction include buprenorphine, naltrexone, and methadone among others. Some of the medications that you can expect with your MAT program for alcohol addiction include disulfiram, naltrexone, and acamprosate. After your standard rehab program is complete, you can expect to continue to receive medication and partake in behavioral therapy for as long as you need to be able to prevent relapse and sustain your recovery.
