Medication-assisted Treatment (MAT)
Medicated-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of FDA-approved medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a "whole-patient" approach to the treatment of substance use disorders.
What is MAT?
Our behavioral health services lay the groundwork for lasting change. However, sometimes it takes more than talk therapy to initiate that transformation. Medication-assisted treatment, or MAT, combines pharmacological support with counseling to help individuals struggling with a substance use disorder. Our compassionate staff administer MAT with several goals in mind, including: - improve patients chances of healing - increase treatment retention - prevent illegal opioid use - teach patients how to live productive lives once treatment ends.
