MAT Addiction Treatment in Miami
Addiction comes in many forms including illicit drugs, prescription drugs, or alcohol. As someone’s use of these substances progresses, the risks of developing a physical and psychological dependency that can escalate into a cycle of addiction and Miami residents are not immune to the impacts of addiction. Drug and alcohol addiction can happen to anyone from any walk of life. Substance abuse often begins for reasons that are unique to each person such as deep-rooted emotional wounds or traumas that have influenced your ability to manage life stressors or triggers. To heal from addiction, you must have the opportunity to address these root causes of addiction within a comprehensive treatment plan that focuses on healing from your substance use disorder within your body, mind, and spirit.
The first step in addiction recovery is to ensure that your body has the proper support to heal from the physical dependency that has been established on drugs or alcohol. This is often done within a drug or alcohol rehab program that invites patients to undergo this crucial, initial step of addiction recovery with the ongoing support and supervision of medical professionals and addiction therapists. Each patient’s experience with detoxing from drugs and alcohol will vary depending on her substance. Specific drugs and alcohol will cause a person to experience varying withdrawal symptoms that will range in severity. Some substances such as opioids or alcohol can create severe, sometimes painful or dangerous, withdrawal symptoms. Although these withdrawal symptoms can be severe, specific treatments are available that will work to alleviate the severity of presenting symptoms while maintaining your overall safety and well-being. In conjunction with leading evidence-based therapy methods, patients will be supported in safely moving through their recovery process.
Miami residents who are living with a severe addiction to drugs or alcohol may be offered the support of a medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program. A medication-assisted treatment program will enable you with the ability to overcome any significant and severe side effects from drug or alcohol withdrawal while helping you to remain focused on your overarching goals of achieving a life of sobriety. Patients in a MAT program are offered ongoing guidance from nurses and physicians that will monitor their progress through detox and help to foster optimal healing from the physical impacts of drug or alcohol abuse.
What Is MAT?
A medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program is designed to support patients that are living with an active addiction to drugs or alcohol where they experience moderate to severe withdrawal symptoms when they stop using drugs or alcohol. A MAT program is typically offered to patients that have a current opioid addiction or alcohol addiction due to the severe withdrawal symptoms that can arise from these substances. These powerful substances are highly addictive and can create significant withdrawal symptoms along with severe cravings for alcohol or drugs that can impede a person’s success in achieving addiction recovery. A MAT program invites patients to take specific medications that help to ease the withdrawal symptoms and minimize the onset of strong cravings for drugs and alcohol. As these symptoms subside, it allows patients to fully engage in the healing process of addiction therapy without becoming tempted or triggered to return to old substance abuse habits.
Patients will typically begin a MAT program when they enter into alcohol or drug detox. If patients are unable to attend a detox program first, there are options to begin a MAT program within an outpatient setting to enable them to begin their addiction treatment and healing when they are ready to do so without having to wait for a spot to become available for them. A MAT program may continue throughout a drug or alcohol rehab program as patients may still be working through the initial withdrawal symptoms or cravings. A MAT program will support patients in having strong clarity of thought and emotion while beginning the healing process of substance abuse treatment. Once you have begun to move through your treatment program and restore your physical health and feel healthy and strong in your recovery, you will be able to start the slow tapering off of the medications provided. This process is done with the supervision and guidance of our healthcare professionals who will maintain your health and safety throughout the entire process.
What To Expect During MAT?
As you prepare to begin your addiction treatment and MAT program, the first step in your treatment plan will be to meet with our onsite medical team and admission counselors who will complete initial assessments and admission paperwork that will enable us to gain a better understanding of your unique circumstances with addiction. As we gain an understanding of your history with substance abuse, our team will be able to effectively determine the levels of care that you will need to be successful in your addiction recovery and treatment program. If our medical team assesses your dependence on drugs and alcohol and finds it to be an appropriate form of addiction treatment, you will be invited to participate in a medication-assisted treatment program. Patients are not required to participate in a MAT program as it is voluntary. If you decided that a MAT program is the form of treatment you wish to proceed with, you will be well invited to begin taking the following FDA-approved medications that will support you by reducing withdrawal symptoms and alleviating any severe drug or alcohol cravings:
- Buprenorphine (also known as suboxone)
