MAT Addiction Treatment in Oklahoma

Detoxing from drugs and alcohol can sometimes take more than just quitting and walking away. There are some drugs that have intense withdrawal symptoms that can cause you enough pain and discomfort to make you want to use again just to make it stop, and sometimes withdrawal symptoms can become dangerous, You may experience symptoms like vomiting and diarrhea, nausea, body aches and pains, high fever, hallucinations and agitation, and even seizures that can become life-threatening if not overseen and treated by a medical professional.

At Resurgence, we offer a Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) program that combines behavioral therapy, clinical care, and dual diagnosis treatments in one integrated program, caring for our patients as whole people rather than just their addiction, setting the foundation for long-term, sustained recovery from a substance use disorder.

What is MAT?

MAT is a specific type of detox program for substance use disorders that combines the use of medications, counseling, clinical care, and therapy to make the process of quitting drugs or alcohol as safe and comfortable as possible.

Detoxing can be uncomfortable, painful, and even life-threatening. As the body adjusts to the stopped drug use, patients may experience withdrawal symptoms like tremors, flu-like symptoms, and body aches, as well as psychological symptoms like anxiety and depression. MAT is the preferred drug detox program to help with these symptoms.

MAT focuses on the whole patient, instead of only focusing on the symptoms of withdrawal. At Resurgence, our MAT program includes:

  • 24-hour clinical supervision, with licensed nursing staff on duty every day, and the head nurse is a certified addiction RN.
  • You will have somebody to talk to or check in with whenever you need them, no matter what time of day it is.
  • The peace of mind in knowing you will be safe, and doctors are there to ensure no medical emergencies take place
  • A comfortable, home-like environment, including a full-sized bed and a TV, not a hospital bed
  • Therapy and counseling to help you deal with unwanted emotions and thoughts, and to begin to deal with your underlying issues that may be connected to your addiction
  • Medications administered as needed to keep you comfortable as your body recalibrates
  • A smooth transition directly from detox to inpatient or outpatient rehab, in the same facility with the same care providers, so you do not have to change locations and get to know new doctors and therapists

After MAT, it is strongly recommended to use your positive momentum and move directly into an integrated rehab program, so that you can gain the self-knowledge, insight, sobriety skills, and recovery tools you will need to live an independent, self-directed, sober life.

What to Expect During MAT?

MAT is tailored to each individual patient, depending on their unique needs and which drug(s) they are quitting. Your withdrawal symptoms may also depend on factors such as:

  • Genetics
  • Mental health factors
  • Physical health
  • Family history
  • The length of addiction
  • How much of the substance you were using at one time
  • How frequently you were using the substance

Some examples of MAT programs include:

  • Medications like methadone and buprenorphine given as a maintenance treatment for opioid withdrawal. These medications are used in prescription amounts under a doctor’s supervision to stop the intense cravings in the body, without any euphoric high and without creating a new addiction. This can greatly decrease the likelihood of a patient immediately relapsing. Similarly, specific short-acting benzodiazepines may be prescribed to help people with benzo addictions slowly taper off their use.
  • Other people may require short-term prescriptions for sleep aids or anti-anxiety medications, and others will be administered ibuprofen or acetaminophen to help with aches and pains.
  • Those with dual diagnosis for co-occurring mental health conditions may be given prescribed doses of psychiatric medications to help with anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, ADHD, and others.

You will stay in our detox facility for the entire time you are detoxing, which can range from a few days to a few weeks, depending on your unique situation. All patients in a MAT program at Resurgence will meet with therapists and counselors to not only help them with emotional and psychological healing throughout this difficult portion of their treatment, but to also begin to find the underlying root of their addiction, and to teach you new coping mechanisms and relapse prevention skills that will last you a lifetime, long after your time in detox and rehab is complete.
