Medication Assisted Treatment
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, such as methadone or buprenorphine, in combination with individual and/or group counseling in the treatment of a disease. MAT has been rigorously studied over more than five decades and is widely considered the most effective way to treat opioid use disorder.
In practice for almost 40 years, BAART medical specialists clearly understand what a patient in medication-assisted treatment needs to successfully overcome opiate use disorder and live a happier, healthier and more productive life. That experience in producing successful outcomes has allowed BAART to develop a treatment protocol which incorporates a harm reduction model, medications and proven psychosocial interventions such as motivational interviewing and substance use disorder counseling. Through this methodology, BAART has helped patients nationwide to reclaim their lives.
“Research shows that when treating substance-use disorders, a combination of medication and behavioral therapies is most successful. Medication assisted treatment (MAT) is clinically driven with a focus on individualized patient care.”
