For those suffering from opioid dependence, the constant cycle of success and defeat is enough to leave them hopeless and dejected. They already know how it has affected their lives in ways nothing else could, yet they cannot escape the draw or cravings.
Medication-Assisted Treatment, also known as MAT, is a treatment approach that uses medication and support counseling to help them slowly and safely wean themselves away from opioids. MAT treatment programs are extremely effective in helping individuals with opioid dependence reclaim their lives.
Fritz Clinic believes strongly in MAT treatment programs. We have seen many reclaim their life completely, never to relapse again. We use Suboxone as our choice of opioid treatment as it is FDA approved and is a partial opioid agonist (find out more) [link to document about Is Suboxone Good For Treatment].
Medication-Assisted Treatments are a low-cost solution when compared to the cost of illegal drugs, damage to relationships, and even the loss of life. Using a MAT treatment program, individuals receive medical supervision, prescribed drugs to help them slowly wean away from opioids, counseling, and a support group that is here for them under any circumstance.
These programs allow individuals to continue working, whereas other programs do not. Since you do not have to alter your lifestyle, there is a greater chance of success.
