Per the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of FDA-approved medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a clinically-driven, “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. MAT is often used to prevent or reduce opioid overdose by normalizing brain chemistry, blocking the euphoric effects of alcohol and opioids, and relieving physiological cravings. The aim of MAT is for patients to achieve stability, which is generally a year or more of continued participation and compliance with treatment recommendation. In addition to the FDA-approved medications (either Methadone or Buprenorphine), patients receive individual treatment planning, urinalysis testing and referrals to community resources as needed.
