Traditions aren’t necessarily a bad thing, but when it comes to our ever-changing understanding of addiction, withdrawal, and relapse, a system that’s stuck in a traditional setting can be life-threatening to patients. As our understanding of addiction changes, so should the way we approach it.
MAT combined with traditional residential rehab is one such evidence-based method that can save lives.
How the MAT Protocol Aids in Treatment and Recovery
Many traditional treatment programs don’t use MAT protocols, but your patients would most likely benefit from an inpatient rehab center that does use a MAT protocol. This is a program that would keep patients in an inpatient facility and complete their path to recovery. With a reduced chance of relapse and overdose, the combination of a MAT protocol with a residential setting would be a step in the right direction.
Our programs combine medication, therapy, and other treatment components to ensure an individual is afforded the best possible chance for lasting recovery. The use of medication in the programs helps keep withdrawal symptoms at bay. Some addictions require a tapering method, meaning a person takes the medication in gradually decreasing amounts until such a time when they can stop the use of medication.
