Many people choose not to seek the services of an addiction treatment program because they’re afraid of the pain and discomfort that can accompany their treatment. In order to alleviate this fear, we provide our patients with medication-assisted treatment, otherwise known as a MAT program. This treatment option provides medication and therapy, which allows your recovery journey to be as comfortable as possible.
When you reach out to Bonfire Behavioral Health, we support those who struggle with mental health conditions and addiction. With these treatment options, you can find care and support, allowing you to be successful in your recovery journey. To learn more about how our MAT or medication-assisted treatment program can help you, contact the team at Bonfire Behavioral Health today at 603.617.4815.
What Should You Expect From Medication-Assisted Treatment?
MAT is a treatment option for those struggling with addiction that the experts at the FDA have approved for licensed professionals to use to address addiction. Our team will use this treatment to provide relief for those struggling with an addiction to opioids or alcohol in many cases. With the help of medication-assisted treatment, many people are able to sustain a long-lasting recovery and sobriety.
How often our team provides you with the medication will depend largely on the type of medication you require. We’ll also monitor your reaction to this medication safely to ensure that you are safe while in our care.
In most cases, medication-assisted treatment is available for those battling opioid use. However, this opioid addiction treatment option is now available for those with alternative addictions. We ensure that we only use medications the FDA has approved so that you can focus entirely on your recovery. For instance, we use two medications: suboxone and Vivitrol.
Suboxone treatment can reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms that stem from opioid addiction. It combines the medications naloxone and buprenorphine, both of which are incredibly useful for addressing opioid use. Furthermore, we monitor your use of this medication closely to make sure no one is misusing the medications.
The second medication we utilize at our medication-assisted treatment program is Vivitrol treatment or naltrexone. This medication blocks the effects of opioids and alcohol, including its ability to relieve pain or provide a high. However, it would be best if you were not actively using opioids or alcohol when you’re using Vivitrol. Otherwise, it is very easy for a person to overdose. To make sure that you’re safe while you’re using this medication, we also monitor its use carefully.
Medication-Assisted Treatment and Therapy
Medication alone cannot give you relief from your addiction. In fact, if you only used the medication, you may quickly find yourself relapsing outside of treatment. As a result, while you are in our medication-assisted treatment program, we combine this treatment with therapy. We offer a range of evidence-based and holistic therapy options to help you understand what causes you to abuse drugs or alcohol. We also use these therapeutic options to give you the tools to maintain your sobriety outside of treatment. We offer a wide array of therapeutic options, including:
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy program
- Dialectical behavior therapy program
- Relapse prevention therapy program
- Family therapy program
- Trauma therapy program
We’ll develop your treatment plan based on your unique needs. If you also require dual diagnosis treatment due to a combination of addiction and mental health conditions, we can provide support for that as well.
