Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
Medication-Assisted Treatment is a proven, evidence-based approach to treating addiction that combines the use of medications with behavioral therapies to overcome opioid use disorder.
Science is challenging the myth that will-power is all it takes to beat addiction. The reality is, once addicted, the biochemistry of the brain is permanently changed. Because of that, it’s not as simple as “choosing” to stop taking opioids or other addictive substances like heroin. We believe going ‘cold turkey’ is not realistic for most people and sustainable recovery is more likely to occur through Medication-Assisted Treatment.
Medications such as Sublocade and Brixadi work by blocking the receptors in the brain that crave opioids, without activating these receptors to create a “high.” Blocking opioid receptors reduces or eliminates cravings for opioids. If drugs like heroin or prescription pain pills are used, the opioid receptors are blocked, so these drugs will not give off the “high” either.
Proven, evidence-based approach to treating addiction
Helps to deal with withdrawal symptoms and cravings which can make it easier to work towards recovery goals like connecting with family, keeping a job, or whatever you want to work toward
Supplements medication with therapy to address past trauma for more effective treatment
Research indicates including behavioral therapy with a medication treatment plan is more effective in treating opioid use disorder than using just one approach alone. At New Beginnings, our therapists work closely with our medical practitioners to provide a compassionate approach to working with individuals and families as they learn the tools of recovery.
We believe an individual’s path to recovery is unique and each person deserves to be heard and supported through the stories they tell. Our therapists teach those recovering from addiction and mental illness to find connections between their thoughts, feelings, and actions and increase awareness of how these things impact recovery.
New Beginnings offers individual therapy, group therapy, and case management to meet the individual needs of each client. These services help our clients find a supportive community, expand their personal awareness, work through obstacles in their recovery, and develop coping skills to combat addictive behaviors.
