Substance use disorder (SUD), also known as addiction, can range from moderate to severe. Since each person’s biology plays an important role in their addiction – accounting for roughly half of the risk of addiction – one person may become far more severely addicted to a substance such as heroin or alcohol than another person even if they use roughly the same amount over time.

The first year of recovery from addiction possesses the greatest risk of relapse, with relapse rates between 40 and 60 percent being reported. Essentially, even with the best available treatment programs for addiction at an accredited rehab center, a person can still relapse. This may be due to improper brain function caused by long-term substance abuse that leads to situations such as an inability to feel reward or pleasure and cravings or psychological symptoms that persist for months and even years after stopping.

In these situations, thankfully, there is a treatment option available known as medically-assisted treatment (MAT). It has the ability to help a person that may not be able to stop their drug or alcohol abuse even after receiving adequate treatment. Our MAT addiction treatment for residents of San Juan Capistrano is a program that can help you to sustain your recovery and improve your wellbeing so that you are no longer held back in your life by the abuse of drugs or alcohol.

What is MAT?

Medically-assisted treatment, also known as MAT, is a type of treatment program for addiction that we offer at Muse Treatment and Recovery Center that can provide people with severe addiction and a high risk of relapse a way to sustain their recovery. MAT uses, as the name suggests, medication to assist with treatment. The medication serves three main purposes which are to help with restoring brain function, to prevent relapse, and to help make behavioral therapy more effective.

Heavy, long-term abuse of drugs such as heroin or prescription opioid painkillers as well as alcohol can cause long-term damage to the brain. For example, a person may produce below the normal levels of dopamine, which is one of the reward-based chemicals, which results in them feeling little or no reward in their life. Our MAT program for residents of San Juan Capistrano can help to restore dopamine production at controlled rates so that you feel more like yourself again.

Our MAT program for addiction for San Juan Capistrano residents also blocks the effects of a substance such as opioids and alcohol which means that even if a person were to relapse then they won’t get the normal effects of the substance. For example, if a person recovering from alcohol addiction were to drink alcohol while on the medications that we provide in our MAT program for San Juan Capistrano residents, then they would instead experience an instant hangover without the usual relaxing effects.

Since brain function is restored, MAT can also help to make a person more open to the behavioral therapies that are a required part of MAT programs. The goal of MAT programs is to provide a long-term solution to sustain recovery but the ultimate goal is to no longer need MAT and behavioral therapy helps to achieve that.

Drug Rehab San Juan Capistrano and MAT programs are a crucial part of effective addiction treatment. In cases where MAT programs are deemed necessary, the treatment can help to save lives. This is because when a person relapses and uses a drug like heroin again, it can be easy to take too much and overdose. Furthermore, many drug manufacturers add substances such as fentanyl into their products which can easily cause an overdose in someone who no longer has a tolerance to the drug.
