What is the 120 day MAT program in South Florida?
MAT, or medically assisted treatment, is a relatively new idea that is helping opioid addicts achieve sobriety. This is done by giving the addict medication which helps to stabilize the receptors in the brain, while also blocking the effects of opioids. This means that if the addict were to relapse and use opioids, they wouldn’t feel the same effect they once did. When a patient is using MAT to work towards sobriety, there are three main medications used. These medications are:
These medications are administered under the careful supervision of a licensed doctor. Each individual and each addiction is unique, and there is no one way to fight opioid addiction. Finding the right treatment program and medications for you and your addiction is important.
