Medication-Assisted Treatment in Boyle Heights

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) has over five decades of evidence supporting its effectiveness. Doctors first used methadone for MAT in the 1960s, and the FDA approved an additional MAT medicine, buprenorphine, in 2002. These medications reduce cravings and withdrawal effects to help patients focus on developing coping skills. Your doctor will work with you to determine which medicine will have the most benefits for you.

Every patient has a unique experience during their MAT program. It takes a different amount of time for each participant to reduce or eliminate their opioid use. You and your treatment team will decide the right times to move into the next phases of treatment.

Methadone-Based MAT

Methadone treats the symptoms of addiction without a “ceiling effect,” or upper limit to its effectiveness. If you have severe withdrawal symptoms, your doctor can work with you to find the ideal amount to take. A methadone-based MAT program also requires an increased number of clinic visits. During the beginning of your treatment, you’ll visit your clinic every day to take your medicine. These appointments will give you the structure you need to work through the first steps to recovery. Compliant with the law, you may earn take-home medicine as you progress.

MAT With Buprenorphine

Buprenorphine has a “ceiling effect” that prevents it from causing euphoric symptoms. The buprenorphine option Suboxone® also contains naloxone, a medicine that deters misuse. A buprenorphine-based MAT program helps patients who have difficulty with relapse. Doctors also prescribe buprenorphine to avoid the risk of overdose. Patients who take it can fill their prescription at a pharmacy and take the medicine at home.

Counseling as Part of MAT

As part of our MAT program, you will also work with an experienced counselor. Your therapist will help you identify triggers for your condition and search for the driving factors behind your opioid use. The one-on-one appointments you have with your counselor will help you develop the coping skills needed to recover. You’ll also learn how to challenge your thoughts and assumptions about opioids.
