MAT Addiction Treatment for West Hollywood Residents
Substance use disorder (addiction) is a chronic, relapsing mental health disorder. It is a condition that doesn’t have a cure but that doesn’t mean that you can’t overcome addiction if you are struggling with alcohol or drug abuse. Other health issues that have similar relapse rates to addiction, such as diabetes, can be managed effectively over the long term. Medically-assisted treatment (MAT) programs offer one such way to treat a severe addiction to substances such as opioids and alcohol.
Residents of West Hollywood can find MAT addiction treatment through Muse Treatment and Recovery Center. This type of treatment that uses FDA-approved medication together with various evidence-based behavioral therapy is the best way to treat addiction and prevent relapse in cases where the chance of relapse remains high even with the correct professional therapies.
Medically-assisted treatment programs also help to save lives. If a person were to not be on the medications that are provided through MAT programs and relapsed, then there is a significant risk of overdose and with any overdose, there is a risk of death if help isn’t found quickly. MAT can work where other treatments fall short.
It is particularly effective in helping to normalize a person’s brain function. In cases of long-term opioid addiction, for example, there may be irreparable damage caused to the normal function of the brain. The person may not be able to rectify these imbalances with time. In such a case, only MAT programs together with behavioral therapy can offer the person a chance at a sustainable, happy life.
Muse is a Los Angeles rehab that is certified to offer MAT programs for long-term addiction recovery. If you feel that MAT might be the only option for you, then give Muse Treatment a call today so that we can assist you in your recovery from substance use disorder.
What is MAT?
Medically-assisted treatment, or MAT, is the use of medication that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the long-term treatment of substance use disorder. There are various medications involved that help by reducing cravings and returning normal brain function.
Some of the medications that are often included in the program aid in blocking the effects of the substance so that even if a relapse happens, there are no effects. In fact, medications for alcohol use disorder can cause the person to feel the negative effects of drinking instantly instead of the usual anxiety relief and pleasure.
MAT programs also help a person to remain in rehab programs and not quit before the positive effects of treatment can be attained. This fact can improve long-term recovery by a significant margin. Evidence shows that through MAT programs, recovering people are able to maintain employment better because they are no longer plagued by constant cravings and the long-term effects that substance abuse can cause even after the person has quit.
What to Expect During MAT?
As mentioned, medically-assisted treatment programs must involve behavioral therapy and holistic treatments for it to be an effective long-term recovery strategy. What you can expect during a MAT treatment program, either in our inpatient or outpatient rehab programs for West Hollywood residents, is to be involved with various therapies and treatments such as cognitive-behavioral therapy and our neuro-rehabilitation program while receiving the medication that will help you to achieve long-term recovery.
Your rehab program will start with an individualized treatment plan being made by your caseworker after discussing your addiction and other elements surround it in private with you. Since withdrawal symptoms can be intense and overwhelming, you will be able to go through our medical detox program that also uses medication to help ease the symptoms associated with each substance. Our medical detox program can significantly help to get you through withdrawal and on to the next step of treatment: therapy and holistic treatments.
At Muse, we understand the importance of uncovering the causes of addiction and healing from past pain, altering behavior, and learning new skills to help you to cope with the stressors of life. Our behavioral therapies include evidence-based methods such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy, trauma-focused therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy.
Our holistic approach to treatment aims to help you to heal through our interdisciplinary treatment options. We will assess the possibility of an untreated mental health problem such as bipolar and then provide you with treatment. We also address the mind, body, and spirit to help you heal from the damage that addiction and other life events may have caused.
The medications that are involved with MAT programs include drugs such as Suboxone, Methadone, Naltrexone, and Buprenorphine for opioid use disorder treatment. For alcohol use disorder, you can expect to be treated with medications such as Disulfiram, Acamprosate, and Naltrexone.
These medications along with our interdisciplinary approach to your recovery treatment will aid you in returning to a normal way of life that isn’t constantly hindered by substance abuse.
