Improving Addiction Treatment Through Medication-Assisted Therapy
Overcoming addiction can be a difficult path to navigate for those in recovery. Fortunately, there is a promising solution: medication-assisted therapy (MAT). By combining FDA-approved medications with counseling and behavioral therapy, this approach can effectively reduce withdrawal symptoms and curb cravings associated with detox. This allows patients to focus on their recovery journey and conquer addiction.
While typically used to treat opioid addiction, medication-assisted therapy can also be advantageous for those struggling with alcohol or other substance misuse. By incorporating this method, patients have a greater chance of regaining control of their lives and triumphing over addiction as safely as possible.
A GUIDE TO UNDERSTANDING MEDICATIONS USED FOR MAT
Exploring Your Treatment Options
Medications used in MAT are carefully selected and FDA-approved to meet individual needs. This mode of treatment is commonly used for individuals with alcohol or opioid use disorders, which can result from addiction to heroin or pain medication.
For those struggling with alcohol addiction, acamprosate, disulfiram, and naltrexone are the primary medications used for MAT. Acamprosate helps repair the brain’s previous state, while disulfiram produces negative effects such as headaches, nausea, vomiting, and anxiety when alcohol is consumed. Naltrexone is used to reduce alcohol cravings and block opioid effects. Withdrawal symptoms may occur when naltrexone is first administered if there are opioids in the individual’s system. This medication can be taken orally on a daily basis or through an injection administered every four weeks by a healthcare professional.
Individuals with substance abuse disorders can use buprenorphine, methadone, and naltrexone as part of MAT. Methadone is a controlled substance that reduces cravings and withdrawal symptoms and blocks opioid effects. Buprenorphine is also effective in reducing opioid dependence, with a lower rate of misuse compared to methadone. Naloxone is used to reverse opioid overdose effects in emergency situations and can be administered through various methods such as nasal spray or injection.
It is recommended to have naloxone on hand in case of an emergency if you, or a loved one, struggle with opioid addiction. Understanding the various medication options for MAT can help individuals achieve long-term recovery.

YOUR ROAD TO RECOVERY
Understanding the Advantages of Medication-Assisted Therapy (MAT) for Substance Abuse Recovery
For people who are dealing with drug addiction, medication-assisted therapy (MAT) has proven to be a highly effective treatment option. When combined with other programs, such as inpatient rehabilitation or outpatient care, it can greatly increase the chance of overcoming addiction and avoiding relapse.
Since between 30% and 50% of people in recovery may relapse, MAT has become an additional tool to reduce the risk of relapse. The primary objectives of MAT are:
- To lower the number of drug and alcohol-related deaths
- To decrease the number of individuals who fail to complete their treatment programs
- To minimize drug use, particularly opiates, among those struggling with addiction
- To enhance an individual’s ability to perform daily activities, such as work or school
- To improve birth outcomes for pregnant women dealing with addiction.

Great facility I highly recommend. Great staff all around who really care for you. Excellent food and small groups that are all supportive of each other's recovery. Loved my time here!
My experience at Findlay was absolutely AMAZING! All of the staff, nurses, Doctors, and patients were amazing. I will always keep Findlay close to my heart and I'm internally grateful for everything they have done for me. Not to mention the food is BOMB for every meal. I 100% recommend this facility to anyone seeking help!
My stay at FRC was more than i could imagine. my detox process was very well maintained by the staff. the staff was more than helpful, the other clients were very helpful and gave a lot of support as well as the staff gave tremendous support.
I've been to 3 treatment centers, and I was scared going to my third one here at Findlay but I was finally ready to get clean and stay clean. Findlay made me comfortable, especially during detox, and gave me the push I wasn't going to give myself. The groups made a huge impact on my recovery and the information I have learned will stick with me forever. At Findlay, every single other person here starting their journey with me I connected with and never felt alone.
