MAT Addiction Treatment for Residents of San Francisco

Even with the best possible treatment for addiction, some people may still struggle to remain sober after rehab. It may be due to persistent effects of substance abuse that they experience long after quitting such as an inability to feel pleasure due to the lasting effects of opioid abuse. When you don’t feel like you’ll be able to remain sober after rehab or if you’ve relapsed after treatment for addiction before then a medically-assisted treatment (MAT) program may be the perfect solution.

In our medically-assisted treatment program for residents of San Francisco, we can help you to sustain your recovery as you work toward your long-term recovery. The goal of this long-term addiction treatment is to make it possible to prevent relapse and improve the effectiveness of treatment so that addiction can be fully overcome.

What is MAT?

Medically-assisted treatment is a type of long-term addiction treatment that some rehabs offer. The program uses behavioral therapy and medications to help to sustain recovery. It is an essential addiction treatment program for people who suffer from persistent effects of substance abuse that may affect their ability to function. Restoring brain function, preventing relapse, and opening the door for behavioral therapies to be effective are the main goals of medically-assisted treatment.

MAT programs are an essential part of effective addiction treatment because it is the only way to help some people to overcome addiction. For some people with an addiction, a standard addiction treatment plan can’t help with the long-term effects that substance abuse has. In a standard addiction treatment plan, they may relapse after drug rehab because they are still struggling to cope because their brain function is impeded and constant cravings may eventually lead to relapse.

MAT doesn’t replace one substance for another but rather makes it possible to sustain recovery. The medications that are used can’t be abused the same way as illicit drugs can and some of the medications even block the effects of drugs or alcohol. This means that even if a person were to slip and have a relapse, then they wouldn’t have the usual effects of the drugs, taking away the reason to relapse.

In this way, our MAT programs for residents of San Francisco help to save lives. Relapse after a period of sobriety is very dangerous because a person’s tolerance is lowered and they may unknowingly take too much, causing an overdose. The blocking effects of the medications combined with the medications to restore brain function to a healthy state help to prevent relapse and overdose risk.

What to Expect During MAT?

MAT programs aren’t just about taking medication to prevent relapse and sustain recovery; the medications must be combined with behavioral therapy because the goal is not to be in a MAT program forever.
