Millions of Americans are struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. Trying to quit on your own is mostly unsuccessful, as staying sober without treatment is very difficult. For those who are battling opioid addiction, this is even more difficult. Trying to quit the use of opioids on your own can be very dangerous, and even deadly depending on the severity of your withdrawal symptoms. Edge Recovery supports those who are using MAT treatment in South Florida as part of their recovery. What is MAT treatment and how does it work? MAT treatment is a medication-assisted treatment plan which allows the addict to take medications during recovery as part of the treatment plan. It has proven to be effective and help many addicts, and Edge Recovery supports those using MAT treatment in South Florida.
MAT treatment uses three medications as part of the treatment plan to help those battling opioid addiction. This is done by giving the addict medication which will help stabilize the receptors in the brain, while also blocking the effects of the opioids. This means that even if an addict were to relapse, they wouldn’t feel the same effects or the same high they once did. The three common medications used during an MAT treatment program are:
These medications help to change the chemistry in one’s brain and block the effects opioids have on the brain. Opioid addiction largely impacts the brain and restoring the balance and receptors in the brain is important. Edge Recovery also offers treatment programs that when combined with MAT treatment, have been proven to be very effective.
