What Is Medication Assisted Treatment?
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) refers to the use of medications, counseling, and behavioral therapy to provide a comprehensive treatment plan for individuals suffering from substance use disorders. Medication-assisted treatment programs are clinically driven, use FDA-approved medications, and are custom-tailored to each patient’s unique needs. Our medication-assisted treatment program is specially designed to treat opioid use disorder and set patients on a sustainable path toward recovery using a combination of buprenorphine (Subutex / Suboxone) and group therapy.
Buprenorphine is an FDA-approved medication utilized in MAT to treat opioid use disorder. As a partial opioid agonist, buprenorphine is effective in treating opioid use disorder by preventing painful withdrawal symptoms and reducing drug cravings. The doctors with Buprenorphine Treatment Centers, Inc offer two kinds of medication for opioid use disorder, each of which contains buprenorphine: Subutex and Suboxone.
Our Subutex doctors and Suboxone doctors are experienced in the use of suboxone to treat opioid addiction. Contact us today to learn more about buprenorphine treatment for opioid use disorder!
Group therapy is an essential component of our medication-assisted treatment program. Buprenorphine Treatment Centers, Inc’s group therapy is intended to help patients understand that opioid use disorder is an illness and provides them with a way to overcome the guilt, self-recrimination, seclusion, and many other maladaptive behaviors typically associated with opioid use disorder.
We believe that group therapy is critical in a patient’s path to recovery and effective in reducing relapses in the future, which is why we provide group therapy at no extra charge to our patients’ prescribed buprenorphine.

Benefits Of Medication Assisted Treatment
The combination of FDA-approved medication, counseling, and therapeutic techniques used in medication-assisted treatment results in positive outcomes for patients striving to overcome substance abuse disorders such as opioid addiction. The following are some reasons why medication assisted treatment is so effective.
Withdrawal is one of the most difficult hurdles to overcome when quitting opioids. Fortunately, medications used in MAT, such as buprenorphine, can relieve debilitating withdrawal symptoms and facilitate a safer detox.
Medication assisted treatment provides patients with a long-term program designed to ease patients off of stronger opioids and enables them to make healthy choices in the future, lowering risks of relapse or overdose.
Subutex and Suboxone help reduce powerful drug cravings that could otherwise lead to relapse. Medications reduce the potential for relapse and overdose and make the road to recovery much safer.
Decrease Health Risks
Medication-assisted treatment can be beneficial for a patient’s health by greatly reducing the risks of adverse health events related to the problematic use of opioids, such as respiratory depression.
