MAT Addiction Treatment for Residents of Riverside

Medically-assisted treatment (MAT) programs can offer those with a severe addiction to a substance such as opioids and alcohol a way to manage their symptoms of addiction and help them to restore normal brain function. There are severe addiction situations where even a usually effective treatment program can still not help a person to overcome their addiction because there are fundamental problems that must be resolved but these issues may take several months to achieve.

In our MAT addiction treatment for residents of Riverside, you will be able to take advantage of the benefits that MAT programs offer. You can be helped to prevent relapse and the mental problems that you may be dealing with such a depression or an inability to feel reward can be rectified as you continue to explore the underlying causes of your addiction in behavioral therapy.

Some people hold a misconception about MAT programs in that you are replacing one drug for another but not only are the medications used not abusable due to unique formulas but if it were not for MAT programs, many people would not be able to achieve lasting sobriety. Our medically-assisted treatment program for residents of Riverside can help to enhance the result of recovery as you work toward long-term recovery and preventing relapse.

What is MAT?

MAT, or medically-assisted treatment, is a treatment program that is available at Resurgence Behavioral Health – ideal for residents of Riverside. In short, MAT is a long-term addiction treatment that utilizes medication to help to restore brain function and prevent relapse by blocking the effects of the drugs or alcohol. The medications are combined with behavioral therapy because not only do the medications help to prevent relapse and promote proper brain function, but they also make a person more susceptible to the positive benefits of behavioral therapy for addiction.

While it is a long-term treatment solution for addictions to a substance such as opioids and alcohol, the ultimate goal is to no longer require the medications or the therapy. By the end of a successful MAT program, you will feel confident in your ability to avoid relapse and function in a healthy, sustainable way.

One of the reasons why MAT is so important in addiction treatment for severe addictions is because of the prevention of potentially dangerous relapses. When a person relapses after being sober for a time, then their tolerance is significantly lowered. When they relapse, they may mistakenly take too much of a substance and with their lowered tolerance, it could lead to an overdose. Therefore, MAT programs save lives by preventing relapse by reducing cravings, and even if relapse were to occur, some medications block the effects of drugs and alcohol making it nearly impossible to fully relapse.

What to Expect During MAT?

In our MAT program for residents of Riverside, you can expect to be treated through a personalized treatment plan. We explore the severity of your addiction and then create a treatment plan that has all of the required elements for you to recover. It will also include some of the goals that you can achieve during your recovery.

At the start of your rehab program with Resurgence, we will help you to deal with the intense withdrawal symptoms that are expected to occur. Some of the medications that you’ll later use in your MAT program may be similar to those that are used in our medical detox program. The purpose is to help you to be more comfortable as you progress through your withdrawal symptoms and to ensure that your health remains optimal through the process.

After drug rehab, you will continue to go through our holistic treatment programs and behavioral therapies that will help you to start building the platform for lasting positive change in your life. We are also able to provide comprehensive treatment for common issues that people in recovery face such as co-occurring mental health disorders.

Various medications will be used in your MAT program that will help you to be more receptive to behavioral therapy and help you to feel more normal. Some medications work to block the effects of substances so that in the event of a relapse, it won’t be a full relapse because the normal euphoric effects won’t exist.

The medications that may be used in alcohol addiction treatment include acamprosate, naltrexone, and disulfiram. In the treatment of opioid addiction, your MAT program may include medications such as methadone, naltrexone, and buprenorphine. Once you’ve completed your 30- to 90-day inpatient or outpatient treatment program, you can continue to use these medications alongside behavioral therapy in the months and even years to come should you need it.
