Medication-Assisted Therapy for Drug & Alcohol Abuse

Medication-assisted therapy programs might be a solution if you or someone close to you is struggling to maintain long-term sobriety. Medication-assisted treatment is a form of therapy that addresses the relapse associated with dependence by reducing the impact drugs and alcohol have and alleviating cravings. This type of treatment involves medication and long-term therapy, which, when used together, can increase the success of your recovery. Call Find Luxury Rehabs today to see what MAT treatment is available near you.

What is Medication-Assisted Treatment?

Medication-assisted treatment is a form of treatment that uses drugs to help you cope with your withdrawal symptoms, reduce cravings, and stay sober. You can use a medication-assisted therapy program for opioid addiction or alcoholism. When you start MAT for addiction, you have to be under supervision throughout the process because the drugs used are heavily monitored by the government and require a prescription. You also need to participate in concurrent therapy as part of your medication-assisted treatment for addiction, or you won’t be able to access the drugs. Reach out to Find Luxury Rehabs to learn more about local MAT addiction treatment near you!

Is There Medication-Assisted Treatment for Drug Addiction?

Yes! MAT addiction treatment uses FDA-approved medications for opioid addiction and alcoholism. Some drugs administered during MAT addiction treatment are used to wean you from your addiction, transitioning you to a less harmful drug before you become completely clean. Others are meant to create negative results from imbibing so that you are less likely to relapse and can change your positive associations with substance abuse. These are some of the options you might have during a medication-assisted therapy program:

Alcohol Antagonists

These block the conversion of acetyl hide into acetic acid when you drink. So, you get very sick when you consume alcohol and are therefore unable to feel the effects of drinking and are less likely to continue.

GABA Analogs

These are derivatives of GABA, a compound naturally produced in your brain. They block brain signals associated with alcohol withdrawal symptoms, making your recovery easier.

Opioid Agonists

They attach to the same receptors in your brain as opioids but don’t give you the same high. So, you can take them and get relief from your cravings without all the detrimental side effects of opioids.

Opioid Antagonists

These block the activation of your opioid receptors, so they will not relieve withdrawal symptoms, but they decrease cravings and do not allow you to feel a high from any opioids.

What Are the Benefits of Medication-Assisted Therapy Services?

Managing Withdrawal

Not all withdrawal symptoms are the same. Someone with an addiction to methamphetamines will experience relatively moderate withdrawal symptoms without a lot of pain or medical complications. They might have cravings and sleep more, but it’s not something that requires medical supervision.

Managing Cravings

Regular drug or alcohol use changes the physical structure and function of your reward center and prefrontal cortex. The prefrontal cortex is tasked with controlling your impulses while your reward center releases dopamine which increases severe wanting on an impulsive, primitive level.

What Medications Are Used to Treat Drug and Alcohol Addiction?

Recovery with medication-assisted treatment for addiction is not a one-size-fits-all situation. The medication you take might differ from someone else. When you take them could vary as well. Research suggests that MAT for addiction can increase your chances of long-term sobriety by minimizing your withdrawal system and mitigating the cravings that are integral to most relapsed situations.

Methadone is an opioid agonist. Methadone is used to help wean people from opioid dependence. It regulates and controls cravings so you can slowly adapt to a sober lifestyle while applying healthier coping skills.

Buprenorphine is a partial opioid agonist. When you take Buprenorphine, it reduces your withdrawal symptoms and cravings.

Naltrexone is an opioid antagonist. Taking this blocks any activation of your opioid receptors. It’s a useful way to prevent yourself from feeling high at all when taking an opioid, thereby reducing your cravings and risk of relapse.

Acamprosate is best for people who have already completed their detox. It helps reduce cravings. Most MAT treatment facilities will administer it within five days of detox, and it begins to peak after the eighth day.

This medication is designed for people who have already completed detox for alcoholism and are starting their recovery. It’s administered in a tablet once per day and serves as a deterrent by producing very unpleasant side effects, including vomiting, headache, nausea, chest pains, and difficulty breathing if you consume even a drop of alcohol.
