Medication Assisted Treatment
Let Us Help You Take the Steps Forward Today.
Traditional addiction treatment consists of drug detox and drug rehab. However, the physical withdrawal symptoms associated with the detox process oftentimes discourage patients from following through and sustaining the recovery journey, resulting in the tens and thousands of drug overdoses each year. To ameliorate the physical withdrawal symptoms in efforts to sustain sobriety, the Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) is introduced, with sufficient positive research results supporting its successes.

What is Medication Assisted Treatment?
Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) integrates FDA-approved medications, counseling and behavioral therapies in providing a “whole-patient” approach and sustainable treatment to substance use disorders. Tackling a combination of the biological and behavioral component of addiction effectively assists the patient in overcoming cravings and uncomfortable physical symptoms associated with withdrawals. MAT has proven to be clinically effective in improving patient survival rate, patient’s ability to live a self-directed life, and their dependency on substances.
Opioid addiction is extremely prevalent in the United States and is extremely powerful because individuals seek out to drugs like heroin and opioid painkillers to feel normal and to mitigate physical withdrawal symptoms from drug detoxes. This addiction and malicious cycle can be combated by medications like methadone and buprenorphine. As opioids themselves, these medications satisfy an individual’s craving and stop the withdrawal symptoms. Although it is counterintuitive to treat opioid addiction with opioid, the treatment is proven to be successful under a safe medical setting, where the prescribed amount doesn’t produce euphoric high and simultaneously helps mitigate withdrawal symptoms. As stated by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, medications like methadone and buprenorphine are not heroin or opioid substitutes, but instead they are used as maintenance treatment. When these medications are used under physician’s close supervision and following prescription amounts, they will not create a new addiction. Thus, by easing the physical withdrawal symptoms, a patient’s risk of relapse reduces and sobriety sustains.
Insurance and Payment for Medically Assisted Treatment
In response to the rising drug overdose rate in the United States, the government has passed down several acts to improve the stigma on addiction and to promote addiction treatment. The Affordable Care Act and the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) requires most health insurers to treat behavioral health services as they do for primary care, providing coverage for addiction treatment as part of the insurance plan benefit. Since the cost of medically assisted treatment varies depending on the types of medications used, the types of medication an insurance plan cover may differ. On top of this, there may be limitations to the number of dosages and prescription refills. Thus, patients should communicate with their insurance provider to determine how much of the addiction treatment is covered.
