Medication Assisted Treatment ProgramMedication-assisted treatment combines behavioral therapy with FDA-approved medications that decrease cravings and prevent withdrawal, helping to pave the way for long-term sobriety. Many clients at Woodland Recovery Center benefit from combining medication and therapy. This approach treats addiction’s physical symptoms and withdrawal while also helping clients develop healthier thinking patterns and coping strategies for cravings. Our medication-assisted treatment program is one of our addiction treatment programs that has proven to be effective in helping clients achieve lasting recovery. Learn more about our medication-assisted treatment program at Woodland Recovery Center today by calling us at 662.222.2989.

What Is Medication-Assisted Treatment?

Quitting substances abruptly can be extremely hazardous. This is why at Woodland Recovery Center, our trained clinicians will gradually reduce your substance use, aiming to minimize discomfort while allowing your body and mind to adjust. 

Substance use can alter neurochemistry and require medication support, especially for opioids and alcohol. Woodland Recovery Center uses medication-assisted detox as a safe and reliable detox method. That means we administer medications to help with physical withdrawal symptoms and can even prescribe and use medications to help with mental changes. Drug detox can be deadly in certain cases, as can alcohol detox, so we take every precaution to make sure you are safe. We provide round-the-clock monitoring for detox clients with compassion and understanding. 

Medication-assisted treatment programs at Woodland Recovery Center can include our Suboxone treatment and our Vivitrol treatment. These treatment options can help manage cravings and withdrawal symptoms, making it easier for clients to focus on their recovery and engage in therapy. Incorporating these medications into our treatment program can increase our client’s chances of long-term success.  

The Impact of Our MAT Program on Long-Term Recovery

The impact of a medication-assisted treatment program on long-term recovery is profound and multifaceted. By leveraging both pharmaceutical and therapeutic interventions, MAT programs significantly reduce the risk of relapse, offering a solid foundation for sustained sobriety.

Clients undergoing MAT receive a comprehensive treatment that addresses both the physical and psychological components of addiction, leading to better outcomes.

Key impacts of MAT programs on long-term recovery may include:

  • Reduced risk of relapse by managing withdrawal symptoms and cravings effectively
  • Improved mental health through the integration of behavioral therapies
  • Enhanced quality of life as individuals rebuild their lives with the support of a recovery-focused community
  • Increased engagement in therapy and recovery activities due to the stabilization of withdrawal symptoms
  • Greater overall success rates in maintaining long-term sobriety compared to traditional treatment methods alone

A MAT program can provide clients with the tools and support they need to overcome addiction and create a fulfilling life in recovery. Utilizing medication and therapy in tandem allows for a comprehensive approach that addresses each client’s needs. Our medication-assisted treatment program at Woodland Recovery Center is designed to provide the best chance for success in long-term recovery.

Overcoming the Stigma Attached to Medication-Assisted Treatment

Despite the many advances and breakthroughs we have witnessed in addiction treatment, there are still people who mistakenly believe that using medication is a sign of weakness or doesn’t address the root cause of the issue. This is a harmful myth. Using medication can be an effective way to manage addiction and help individuals on the path to recovery.

It’s important to remember that medication-assisted treatment is not simply replacing one addiction with another. Instead, it can help alleviate withdrawal symptoms, reduce cravings, and restore balance to the brain, allowing individuals to focus on their recovery. It’s also important to note that medication-assisted treatment is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Our trained clinicians carefully assess each client to determine the best medication options for their unique needs.

The stigma surrounding medication-assisted treatment only serves to hinder progress and perpetuate harmful misconceptions. By educating ourselves and others about the benefits of MAT, we can break down these stigmas and provide individuals with the best chance at long-term recovery.
