Medicated Assisted Treatment

Across the United States, there are approximately 128 deaths per day related to opioid use. In order to combat this devastating statistic, doctors and chemists have worked together to develop medications that can help an individual stop using and get clean. Medication-assisted treatment is the combination of medication and therapy in order to battle an addiction to opioids. Over the last 5 years, persons across the country have participated in studies to determine the efficacy or reliability of medication-assisted treatment in response to opioid use. Due to this innovative and regenerative technique, over 1.27 million individuals are currently taking a medication-assisted treatment approach to rehabilitation.

Medicated Assisted Treatment

What Is Medication-Assisted Treatment?

There are several medications associated with this style of treatment. These FDA-approved drugs are utilized because of their safety and how well they work for individuals. Buprenorphine, methadone and naltrexone are the big three that work within your body to combat opioid addiction.

Buprenorphine, FDA approved, the first rehabilitative medication to be prescribed and/or dispensed in a doctor’s office, is an opioid partial agonist. This means that it works to create euphoria like an opioid high, but at a lower dose and with weaker opioid effects. This gives the body the changes to repair and rebuild after chronic drug use.

It is ideal to start Buprenorphine 12-24 hours after your last opioid use to decrease the likelihood of severe withdrawal symptoms. Withdraw symptoms from opioids include instances of agitation, anxiety, muscle aches, increased tearing, insomnia, runny nose, sweating, and yawning. These early symptoms can be an indicator that enough time has passed for an individual to access medication-assisted treatment.

However, Buprenorphine can have its own side effects. Individuals using Buprenorphine (a combination of Suboxone and naltrexone) have noticed constipation, dizziness, drowsiness, sweating, fevers, and blurred vision. When working with your doctor to regulate your dose, contact them immediately if you have difficulty breathing, have itching, pain, or swelling, and/or pain at the injection site, as these can be warnings of a worse reaction to come.

Another FDA-approved medication for medication-assisted treatment is methadone. As the first medication to support individuals addicted to opioids starting in 1947, methadone treatments have advanced in the last 70 years. A study in 2015 indicated that approximately 10% of all substance abuse treatment centers have an opioid treatment program that utilizes methadone in its planning.

Individuals who use methadone are more likely to stay in treatment and have fewer positive drug tests than other subjects according to a study completed by the Cochrane review. However, methadone can also be habit-forming and for someone that is struggling with an addiction, it may be counterintuitive to prescribe a medication that can cause what they’re battling. Doctors must monitor individuals who are taking methadone to ensure that it is being taken exactly as prescribed and that they don’t experience any severe side effects. Methadone, unchecked, can cause seizures, difficulty breathing and swallowing, and hallucinations.

The third and final FDA-approved medication-assisted treatment for opioid use is Naltrexone. Naltrexone is an injectable medication that’s use has been increasing over the last decade because now “extended-release injectable Naltrexone may be prescribed by any individual who is licensed to prescribe medication.” Naltrexone acts to treat and prevent relapse in clients with opioid use disorders.

Individuals struggling with opioid abuse are recommended to utilize Naltrexone’s extended-release injection, while individuals who are struggling with alcohol abuse may be recommended to take the medication by mouth. Individuals who struggle with an alcohol use disorder may find that Naltrexone is helpful in reducing cravings.

However, Naltrexone can be hepatoxic for individual who do not take as prescribed or have an underlying medical condition that impacts the liver.

It is believed that anyone who seeks treatment should have access to FDA-approved medication-assisted treatment as part of their rehabilitation program.

The Benefits of Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment can provide individuals struggling with recovery a real chance to maintain sobriety through treatment. MAT is most often recommended for persons undergoing outpatient treatment and attempting to work while attending rehabilitation. MAT facilitates and supports individuals through the early stages of recovery and is medically monitored to ensure correct usage.

Individuals who can benefit from MAT include individuals who have relapsed and are struggling to maintain sobriety, individuals who are just starting out but are unable to attend a residential program, and/or persons who need additional support when weening their bodies off other drugs.

Medication-assisted treatment has already helped millions of people successfully complete addiction treatment programs, maintain sobriety, and transition from heavy drug use to monitored medications.

Leave behind the clouded, overwhelming, and stressful feelings of drug use. With Medication-assisted treatment our clients can get the help they need in the time they need it.
