What is MAT?
Medication assisted treatment (MAT) combines medications and behavioral therapy to treat substance addiction. This means that treatment for individuals with opioid (and other) addictions could include FDA approved medication, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies.
At Infinity Medical we believe in a “whole patient” approach for the successful treatment of substance abuse disorder. According to SAMHSA this approach has been shown to:
- *Improve patient survival
- *Increase retention in treatment
- *Decrease illicit opiate use and other criminal activity among people with substance use disorder
- *Increase patients ability to gain and maintain employment
Overcoming an addiction is one of the most challenging things many men and women will ever face in their lifetime, without professional help many are likely to remain entrapped in the cycle of addiction with no hope of ever breaking free of this lethal circumstance they find themselves in. Those who have previously been unsuccessful in overcoming their dependency to substances may be able to start living the healthier and more fulfilling lives they deserve with the help of medication assisted treatment (MAT).
