Medication-Assisted Treatment in Norwood, CA
At BAART Norwood, we specialize in medication-assisted treatment, a model with decades of positive results. During MAT, the patient takes medicine that reduces their cravings and withdrawal effects. The medication reduces the brain’s need for opioids so that the patient can work on recovery skills. MAT involves multiple treatment services meant to address all aspects of addiction.
Norwood, CA Methadone Treatment and Counseling
Doctors first used MAT with methadone as a treatment approach in the 1960s. This medication blocks the euphoric effects of other opioids while treating withdrawal symptoms. Since methadone has no “ceiling effect” where it loses effectiveness at a certain amount, it can treat severe symptoms. With a doctor’s supervision, methadone promotes a safer and more comfortable recovery process.
The format of a methadone MAT program gives the patient extra structure as they get accustomed to recovery. New patients visit the clinic every day to get their medicine. Your clinic staff will give you methadone in a liquid form, which stays in the system for about 24 to 36 hours, keeping it effective between appointments. In accordance with the law, you may get permission to take your medicine home after you reach a specific level of progress.
As part of our methadone MAT program, all patients participate in one-on-one therapy sessions. Methadone reduces your withdrawal symptoms, making it easier to adopt the skills taught in counseling. Everyone has a different experience with substance use therapy. Common strategies include discussing past traumas, identifying mental health symptoms and finding healthy ways to cope with life’s difficulties.
Every patient has a unique treatment experience when they participate in a methadone MAT program. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) recommends at least one year of treatment for the best results. You and your doctor can work together to find the ideal solution for your symptoms.
