Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, in combination with therapy, to treat substance abuse disorders. Medication
Medications include Suboxone, Sublocade, and Vivitrol.
Buprenorphine and Naloxone are the key ingredients in Suboxone and Zubsolv. Buprenorphine is the key ingredient in Sublocade, and Naltrexone is the key ingredient in Vivitrol.
The medication assists by curbing cravings and blocking the effects of opioids or alcohol.
Like with anxiety and high blood pressure, the medication is part of an overall treatment plan to help manage symptoms and get your life back.
“The Bridge Device is a small, FDA-cleared electronic device, which is worn behind the ear, delivers mild electrical signals into the brain that block the transmission of pain signals sent from the spine and brain. It is usually worn during the initial 3-5 days of the detox process when withdrawal pain and symptoms are most severe.
A little larger than a half dollar, the Bridge Device fits behind the ear and sends electrical feedback to the brain, blocking the pain signals that are associated with the withdrawal of opiates during detox.
Once past these stages of withdrawal and detox, it is now highly recommended to undertake a long-term program to stay sober, such as counseling and medication-assisted treatment such as Naltrexone.”
