Medication-Assisted Treatment in Brighton, CO
At BAART Brighton, we specialize in medication-assisted treatment with methadone and buprenorphine. In an MAT program, the patient takes medication that reduces their withdrawal symptoms and cravings for illicit opioids. The reduction of these difficult, often painful symptoms, helps to prevent relapse and encourage commitment to the program. MAT also involves one-on-one counseling that helps the patient understand their addiction and how to use healthier coping skills to deal with the difficulties of life in recovery. Patients with opioid use disorder can live safer and healthier lives in a medication-assisted treatment program.
All MAT medications provide the management of withdrawal symptoms, but at the correct dose, do not provide a “high” or feeling of euphoria. Patients work with a medical provider to determine the best medication for their needs and find a therapeutic dose of that medication. Once that dose has been reached, patients are more comfortable and able to focus on individual and group counseling with a BAART substance use counselor.
Methadone and buprenorphine MAT programs have a structured beginning that helps the patient stay committed to treatment. Daily visits to the clinic help to build new, healthy routines and habits. As you progress in treatment from the stabilization to the maintenance phase, and adhere to all program policies as well as state and federal regulations, you are able to earn take home medication privileges.
BAART Brighton Counseling Services
Medication-assisted treatment utilizes therapy with an experienced counselor as an integral part of a comprehensive treatment program. Substance use counseling offers you a safe place to discuss the emotional aspects of addiction. Patients with underlying traumas or a mental health conditions that influences their drug use can address these complicated issues with a skilled counselor in an environment free of judgement. You and your counselor will determine the goals and strategies for your recovery.
Group counseling sessions offer our patients the opportunity to meet with others who have similar experiences, creating a sense of community and reducing feelings of guilt and shame. Many patients develop supportive relationships with other group members that are very helpful when overcoming the challenges of long term recovery.
