What is Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)?

MAT (Medication-assisted treatment) is an evidence-based treatment approach for substance use disorders that combines the use of behavioral therapies with medications that can ease physical and psychological symptoms associated with addiction. These FDA-approved medications can make it easier to manage cravings, withdrawal symptoms, and other physical effects of addiction.

MAT can be an effective treatment option for individuals who are struggling with nicotine products, alcohol, benzodiazepines, and opioids including pain medication and heroin. Opioid use disorder treatment can include the use of buprenorphine, methadone maintenance programs, naltrexone therapy, Vivitrol, and Suboxone treatment. Treatment for alcohol use disorder can include medications such as naltrexone, Vivitrol, acamprosate (Campral), and disulfiram (Antabuse). Anticonvulsants, antidepressants, a benzodiazepine taper, and Flumazenil may be used to treat a benzodiazepine use disorder. Depending on the details of your use, you may be eligible for MAT counseling services in an inpatient or outpa tient treatment program. Your care can include the use of individual therapy, group therapy, support groups, and educational sessions that can help address the root of your addiction.

What is Medication-Assisted Inpatient Treatment?

Inpatient rehabilitation programs often provide medication-assisted treatment for individuals who are experiencing withdrawal symptoms and are in the beginning stages of their recovery. Medication-assisted detox programs are commonly used by those who are experiencing withdrawal symptoms and can utilize medication-assisted therapy options to provide relief for withdrawal symptoms that you may experience. 

Depending on the substance, or substances, that an individual is using, medication-assisted treatment could be a beneficial component of their recovery plan. Opioid addiction medications can be used to help manage cravings and decrease the risk of an overdose, should an individual relapse. Similarly, alcohol addiction medications can help manage cravings, and reduce the euphoric effects of alcohol to discourage alcohol use. Beginning your medication regimen in an inpatient setting provides your body with time to adjust to your new medication, and for you to develop an understanding of how this medication supports you in your recovery. Inpatient treatment programs can vary widely in length because they are dependent on personal characteristics, including the severity of your addiction, physical symptoms, and your experience with other mental health concerns.

What is Medication-Assisted Outpatient Treatment?

MAT in addiction treatment programs including intensive outpatient programs (IOP) and routine outpatient care allow individuals to live at home, and maintain their daily responsibilities as they engage in treatment. Outpatient MAT programs combine therapy and counseling services with a continuous relationship with a physician or other healthcare provider who can provide medical monitoring and adjust medication regimens as needed. 

Individuals who utilize MAT on an outpatient basis are often less likely to require detox support and are often actively working towards their recovery goals. Medication-assisted treatment at this stage in recovery can aid in a person’s ability to cope with and manage cravings and triggers while reducing the euphoric effects and the risk of an overdose if they were to relapse. Outpatient MAT programs can include various behavioral health interventions including group therapy, individual therapy, dual diagnosis treatment, and family therapy. 

What is Medication-Assisted Partial Hospitalization Treatment?

Partial hospitalization treatment programs (PHP) that offer medication-assisted treatment provide an intensive, and structured addiction treatment program with the benefits of an outpatient treatment program. PHPs are designed for individuals who require a higher level of care, but do not require around-the-clock support like what you would find in an inpatient rehabilitation program. Partial hospitalization programs are also known as day programs because they provide you with a full 6–8 hours of various treatment approaches before you return home for the evenings, typically 5 days a week. 

Those who utilize medication-assisted treatment options while engaging in a PHP are not likely to require support for withdrawal, rather, these individuals have their feet on the ground in their recovery and are actively taking steps to move towards their recovery goals. With comprehensive treatment options, individuals can remain in their home environment while receiving medical supervision, therapy, and support services from their medication-assisted recovery programs.
