WHY USE MEDICATION ASSISTED TREATMENT FOR RECOVERY?
STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THAT MORE PEOPLE TAKING BUPRENORPHINE MEDICATION FOR TREATMENT OF OPOID ADDICTION TEND TO IMPROVE THEIR SUCCESS THAN THOSE WITH NON-DRUG THERAPIES. MANAGING THE PHYSICAL SYMPTOMS FOR OPIATE DEPENDENCY HELPS PEOPLE GAIN CONTROL OF THEIR LIFE AND CONCENTRATE ON THEIR COUNSELING AND RECOVERY.
Buprenorphine works in a way that alleviates physical withdrawal symptoms and cravings while also partially blocking the effects of opiates like prescription painkillers or heroin. Treatment is offered in an out-patient setting at the Community Health MAT clinic. This allows for all counseling, therapy, pharmacy and physical needs to be met at one location. The MAT clinic offers you a “Recovery Team” of highly qualified physicians and behavioral health experts who are supportive in your journey to a healthy life.
