What is Medication Assisted Treatment?
If you haven’t heard about medication assisted treatment in South Florida, it’s time to look into the benefits it can offer to those struggling with opioid addiction. While it’s a relatively new program, it’s shown to be very beneficial in helping addicts overcome their opioid addiction. The medications that are prescribed can help fight urges and cravings and reduce withdrawal symptoms one might face when they try to quit using the opioids they’re addicted to. When someone uses opioids, the neurotransmitters in the brain are what give the person the high that they feel. When using medication assisted treatment these neurotransmitters are blocked so that even if the person relapses, they will not feel the same high. The three main medications that are used in a medication assisted treatment program include:
These medications help both the body and the brain overcome the addiction so the individual can establish a new normal which will allow them to function in their daily life. When a person uses medication assisted treatment and also participates in our 120 day program, they can see long lasting results. A full recovery is possible with help from Edge Recovery and a medication assisted treatment program.
