Best Options for MAT Drug Rehab for San Antonio Residents

Alcohol and drug addiction is a physical and/or psychological dependence on a substance, caused by a complex disease that affects the brain. Addiction can affect your judgment, self-control, decision-making, and memory. MAT Drug rehab for San Antonio residents is one of the best and safest ways to heal from addiction. Drug and alcohol use can begin for many reasons, including:

  • Exposure to trauma
  • Social situations and pressure
  • The environment you grew up in
  • Biological reasons
  • Self-medication for comorbid mental health conditions

Addiction Treatment that
Just Works

Individualized treatment programs delivered in a comfortable, relaxed setting promote healing in your recovery journey.

Exposure to these risk factors at certain developmental stages in life can increase the risk of developing an addiction later in life. After prolonged substance abuse, the brain and body make physical changes that make you depend on the drug to function normally. This is why uncomfortable and dangerous withdrawal symptoms happen when you try to quit cold turkey. Your body needs time to reconfigure itself, and without medical help, you may experience pain, shock symptoms, and in the worst cases, seizures, and even death.

A Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) detox program is the safest and most comfortable way to detox from drugs and alcohol. At Resurgence, you will receive the best possible treatment for your specific drug addiction that will be customized to your individual needs.

When you join our integrated drug detox and rehab program, you will see that Resurgence is the best option for MAT drug rehab for residents of San Antonio.

What is MAT Drug Rehab?

Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) drug rehab is a multifaceted detox and rehabilitation plan that will help you stop using drugs and alcohol without suffering unnecessarily. You will live inside a detox facility, and FDA-approved, prescription doses of medications can be given by medical professionals to help stop drug cravings, pain, and restlessness as your body adjusts to not having the substance(s) in your system anymore. These medications are used in small, limited doses to satisfy your body’s cravings for the drug(s) without providing any type of high, to safely stop withdrawal symptoms without creating a new addiction.

At Resurgence, we treat you as a whole person, not just your addiction. You are worthy of respect and kindness, and we use a trauma-informed methodology in all our care. We can help you get to the root of your addiction, treat co-occurring mental health conditions, and teach you healthy coping strategies that will help prevent relapse in the future, setting the foundation for long-term, sustained recovery. MAT at Resurgence combines behavioral therapy, life-skills training, dual diagnosis treatments (if needed), counseling, and physical health care into one long-term treatment plan.

Our clinical staff is onsite 24 hours a day to ensure your safety, and we have nurses around during the day to ensure you are progressing through treatment as planned and to adjust if necessary. All treatment is overseen by our head nurse, who is an addictions expert. You will live inside our facility for the duration of your treatment, in a comfortable full-sized bed, not a hospital bed.

The MAT program at Resurgence, when combined with an appropriate rehabilitation program, has been proven to improve a patient’s survival rate, and their ability to live independently after treatment without the use of drugs or alcohol.

MAT Drug Rehab for Opioid Addiction

Some of the most commonly abused opioids include heroin, fentanyl, codeine, oxymorphone, morphine, hydrocodone, and oxycodone. These are all highly addictive drugs that, when you try to stop use, may very rapidly produce withdrawal symptoms like:

  • Anxiety/irritability/mood changes
  • Restlessness
  • Runny nose and eyes
  • Muscle aches/pains
  • Dysphoria/depression
  • Nausea/vomiting/stomach pain
  • Insomnia
  • Rapid heart rate/increased blood pressure
  • Feeling hot/cold, sweating, goosebumps
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Powerful drug cravings/preoccupation with getting more drugs

Medical detox can help you through your acute detox period by providing methadone and other medications that can reduce or even stop drug cravings. You may also receive medication to help you deal with pain and to help you rest easier. The Resurgence MAT drug rehab program in San Antonio is customized to each patient, and you can trust that we will do what is best for your individual needs.

Because some symptoms of opioid addiction can last much longer than your original detox phase, or even come back months or years in the future, you will need a strong base of coping strategies, support, and knowledge that can help you through tough times. At Resurgence, our outpatient, alumni, and aftercare programs are designed to be there for you for as long as you need.

MAT Drug Rehab for Prescription Drug Addiction

At Resurgence, our MAT drug rehab program works well for those wanting to quit taking prescription medications, even after a prolonged addiction. You will move into our detox facility, and we can provide medications to help with anxiety and physical symptoms, so you can rest properly, with lower stress levels as you detox.

There are many different types of prescription medications, and depending on the drug you are detoxing from and your current state of mental health, we may provide additional treatments, like psychiatric medications or an opioid agonist. These short-term prescriptions are monitored by a doctor and will give you the stability you need as you taper off the prescription drug use over time.

The MAT program at Resurgence is an integrated program, in which you will meet with a therapist and a counselor right away as you are detoxing, so you can have help dealing with emotions and thoughts, and you can gain new coping techniques for dealing with anxiety and discomfort. You will begin to find the root of your addiction, which will help long-term healing.

Because you likely began taking prescription medication for pain, a mental health condition, or another medical issue, you may also begin dual diagnosis treatment, or be provided with alternatives for dealing with co-occurring issues, chronic pain, or discomfort. We work on a case-by-case basis and will do everything in our power to ensure you are not suffering and can learn new healthy coping methods that can last you a lifetime. Treating these issues together with addiction will end the cycle of abuse and lead to a more effective, long-term solution.

How Effective is MAT Drug Rehab?

MAT drug rehab is the most effective way to stop using drugs and alcohol. It gets you through the hardest part of detoxing safely, without pain and discomfort, lowering the risk of relapse so you can move on into a rehab program and get on with your life.

At Resurgence, our MAT rehab program moves you into our sober and safe facility for the duration of your detox, keeping you away from enablers, and the places and people that may trigger you or make drug/alcohol use feel like an easy escape.

Our integrated continuum of care will lead you seamlessly through detox, inpatient rehab, outpatient rehab, and into an aftercare program. We will provide therapy, education, and counseling that will help you deal with the underlying issues that cause addiction, and we provide you with the support and strategies you will need to use to deal with cravings, temptations, and stress that would trigger a relapse otherwise.

At Resurgence, our addiction treatment programs have been proven effective in reducing the chance of relapse in our patients. We not only have a vibrant online and in-person alumni community, but we also have a large spectrum of outpatient and aftercare programs throughout the San Antonio area so you will never be alone in your recovery.

MAT Drug Rehab at Resurgence

At Resurgence, our MAT drug rehab program combines medications, counseling, behavioral therapy, and dual diagnosis treatment every step of the way. After detoxing, we recommend a 30-to-90-day inpatient rehab program, in which you will live inside our cabin-like accommodations, with a comfortable, full-sized bed and freshly prepared healthy meals provided each day by our onsite chefs. Our Texas location is incredibly serene and offers amenities like equine therapy, offsite outings to local attractions, and gorgeous scenery.

Your inpatient rehab program will be tailored to suit your needs, preferences, and budget, as you step out of your everyday stresses and focus on yourself and your own healing. Your days will be filled with therapy, counseling, and educational programs, with plenty of time for rest and recovery. Some of the treatments we offer include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT)
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT)
  • Experiential Therapy
  • Trauma-Informed Therapy
  • 12-Step Groups
  • SMART Recovery Groups
  • One-on-one talk therapy

Following inpatient rehab, we have extended outpatient programs that can be customized to suit any patient. Our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) is an intermediary step between residential rehab and outpatient rehab, where you live at home but commute to an outpatient facility in your area for full days of groups, therapy, and another programming.

Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) is a more flexible option for those ready to get back to their jobs, school, and family. Your appointments and groups can be scheduled around your life as you live at home and return to your responsibilities at home.

We can provide referrals to trusted partners who run sober living homes if you feel you need a more structured environment to transition to after inpatient treatment. Following outpatient treatment, we have alumni and aftercare programs that can last for as long as you want, so you will continue to be connected with a positive, sober community for the rest of your life. You will gain the support, skills, and mindset you need to feel confident and ready to live a drug- and alcohol-free life.

We have multiple payment options and take most insurance plans. At Resurgence, we are here to help create an individualized plan to help with your unique situation. Contact us today to learn more about MAT detox and MAT drug rehab programs in San Antonio. We are here for you.
