Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication Assisted Treatment is a type of treatment that combines the use of medication with behavioral therapies to treat substance use disorders. MAT helps to stabilize brain function, reduce cravings, and improve overall quality of life. The medications used in MAT work by blocking the effects of opioids or reducing withdrawal symptoms. MAT can be used to treat opioid use disorders, alcohol use disorders, and nicotine dependence.

Types of Medications Used in MAT

Methadone

A full opioid agonist that helps to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms

Buprenorphine

A partial opioid agonist that also helps to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms

Naltrexone

An opioid antagonist that blocks the effects of opioids

Acamprostate

A medication used to treat alcohol use disorders

Nicotine Replacement Therapy

A medication used to treat nicotine dependence

How does MAT Work?

MAT works by reducing cravings, preventing withdrawal symptoms, and stabilizing brain function. The medications used in MAT help to activate the same receptors in the brain as the addictive substance, but without the same intensity of euphoria. This helps to reduce cravings and prevent withdrawal symptoms, making it easier for individuals to stay in treatment and focus on their recovery. MAT is usually combined with behavioral therapies to provide a comprehensive approach to treatment.

Benefits of MAT

Reduced cravings & withdrawal symptoms

Improved retention in treatment

Reduced risk of overdose

Reduced risk of infectious disease

Improved overall quality of life

Addiction Medicine

For many people, addiction is a spiritual crisis. Yoga can help individuals reconnect with their spiritual selves by:

Promoting Self-Awareness

Yoga encourages individuals to focus on the present moment and develop a deeper understanding of themselves.

Cultivating Gratitude

Gratitude is an important spiritual practice that can help individuals in recovery maintain a positive attitude and prevent relapse. Yoga can help individuals develop a sense of gratitude and appreciation for their bodies and their lives.

Encouraging Self-Compassion

Addiction can be a source of shame and self-loathing. Yoga can help individuals cultivate self-compassion and learn to be kinder and more forgiving to themselves.
