Medication Assisted Treatment Options
Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) is a safe and effective method for alcohol and narcotic withdrawal and maintenance. There is ample evidence suggesting that harm reduction strategies should be more widely available to those suffering from alcohol dependence and drug addiction. Tarzana Treatment Centers in Los Angeles has taken note of these facts, and offers several medication assisted treatment options.
Traditional alcohol and drug treatment services help many individuals to begin a life in recovery and improve their lives. MAT is utilized in medical detoxification at the start of treatment to minimize withdrawal symptoms from alcohol and other drugs. This process is important since patients must be medically stable before beginning the process of recovery.
For some, though, relapse commonly follows traditional treatment. This is generally due to alcohol cravings and opiate cravings that vary greatly from patient to patient. Medications like Suboxone, Vivitrol, and Methadone help to minimize cravings so these individuals may begin the process of recovery, medically stable and in a receptive state of mind.
