Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) can help you reduce the risk of relapse by minimizing cravings and withdrawal symptoms, allowing you to more fully engage in all aspects of your addiction treatment program and sober life.
Medication-Assisted Treatment Overview
Through medication-assisted treatment (MAT), we provide you with evidence-based addiction medications to help you overcome your dependence on opioids and alcohol. Available throughout our continuum of care, addiction medications — combined with counseling and behavioral therapy — are powerful tools in the fight against addiction. MAT helps you stay on the path towards long-term, sustainable recovery.
Individualized Addiction Treatment
For some individuals, medication-assisted treatment can be a life-saving. At Mountainside, our experienced team will evaluate your health, history of use, and recovery goals to determine whether medications may be helpful for you in maintaining sobriety and improving your quality of life. Working closely with you and your clinician, our medical and psychiatry team will develop a customized medication plan to meet your needs. Throughout your treatment, they closely monitor your progress, making dosage adjustments as needed.
Addiction medications have proven most effective when paired with counseling and behavioral therapy. And so, clinical treatment is an integral component of our MAT services. As you transition through the various phases of treatment, you have access to a wide array of clinical offerings tailored to where you are in your recovery. By addressing both your physical and psychological triggers to use alcohol, opioids, and other drugs, your chance for a lasting recovery significantly increases.
