Bicycle Health offers Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) to help people stop using opioids. This treatment provides instant relief for opioid cravings and withdrawals, prevents overdose, and provides long-term maintenance treatment. We typically prescribe a formulation of Buprenorphine/Naloxone (Suboxone) and provide free online support groups and mental health services.
Bicycle Health is the perfect fit if you are looking for convenient Suboxone MAT treatment near you.
For patients struggling with addiction to opiates (oxycodone/Percocet, hydrocodone/Vicodin, Dilaudid, fentanyl, and heroin), Medication-Assisted Treatment (also known as MAT) is life-saving, evidence-based, recommended treatment.
MAT has been rigorously tested and is scientifically proven to be effective treatment for people with addiction to opioids:
Many patients enter detox facilities to come off opioids in a safe way. After they are detoxed, if they leave and are NOT started on MAT, 90% of them will relapse within 3 months, putting them at high risk for overdose and death. However, when patients are started on MAT, 50% of them will remain in recovery 1 year later.
Other studies have demonstrated that patients NOT on MAT are more than THREE TIMES as likely to overdose and die compared to those who remain on MAT.
So, these medications work and they save lives.
