Medication-Assisted Treatment

What is MAT?

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is a evidence-based form of addiction treatment that is used to help “sustain recovery and prevent overdose” according to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

This type of treatment is used in conjunction with psychotherapy to give clients a comprehensive addiction treatment plan that works toward the ultimate goal of long-term sobriety. 

Does MAT Work?

According to data from SAMHSA, medication-assisted treatment has been shown to improve client survival, increase retention in recovery, decrease substance abuse, and more. 

Common MAT Medications

The type of medication that will be prescribed will depend on a number of things including drugs of abuse, personal history, mental health, and more. 

Some of the most common types of MAT include, acamprosate, disulfiram,  methadone, buprenorphine, naloxone, naltrexone, and more.
