What is MAT?

Medications for addiction treatment (MAT) for opioid addiction is the use of medications—including Buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone), methadone, or naltrexone (Vivitrol)—to treat opioid use disorder, thereby reducing opioid cravings, withdrawal symptoms, and overdose risk. Buprenorphine, methadone, and naltrexone are approved by the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for this purpose, and MAT is most effective when used in conjunction with counseling and psychosocial support.

Medications for addiction treatment is critical for preventing overdose and death. Research shows that with MAT, 75% of patients will still be in recovery one year later. Conversely, studies demonstrate that within one month of stopping buprenorphine treatment, more than 50% of patients relapse to illicit opioid use. Benefits of Suboxone include helping patients to feel normal and healthy, and when taken as prescribed by a medical provider, it treats addiction and does not cause the negative impacts of uncontrolled substance use on one’s life, goals, and daily functioning.

Here at Bicycle Health, we offer MAT with buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) to help patients stop or cut down on their opioid use. To learn more about the proven evidence behind buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) treatment, call us at (844) 943-2514 or schedule an appointment here.
