Medication-Assisted Recovery Treatment (MAT) for Opioid and Alcohol Substance Use and Addiction

medication-assisted treatment programWhen you make the courageous decision to end your opioid or alcohol substance use and addiction, you should not be in pain. Period.

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) or medication-assisted recovery (MAR) is the physician-supervised use of medication to treat alcohol, heroin, or opioid use dependency and addiction. In study after study, medication-assisted opioid or alcohol treatment is proven to be the most effective method, significantly outperforming traditional forms of treatment that rely on counseling alone. At Symetria Recovery, our team firmly believes in holistic treatment for alcohol and opioid addiction. We help you overcome your opioid or alcohol addiction by using our medication-assisted treatment program as part of our innovative Symetria Method.

The Symetria Method Defined

Medication-assisted recovery treatment for substance abuse involves using medications to normalize brain chemistry and block the euphoric feeling associated with opioids or alcohol. These medications also reduce cravings and normalize body functions. As part of the Symetria Method’s comprehensive substance use, dependency, and addiction recovery treatment program, they’re useful for removing the common distractions that decrease a patient’s ability to recover.

While most other opioid or alcohol addiction treatment providers only prescribe medication, The Symetria Method utilizes physician-dispensed medication as part of our comprehensive evidence-based behavioral health treatment recovery program. This is a more effective — and responsible — approach to the use of medication to treat opioid, heroin, and alcohol dependency. The Symetria Method consistently produces a patient success rate that is four times greater than the industry average.

If deemed medically appropriate, you receive medication on Day One, eliminating withdrawal symptoms and reducing cravings. Relief from physical and psychological suffering frees you from fears associated with withdrawal and allows you to focus instead on your recovery.

At intake, you undergo a 360-degree assessment to determine which medications are appropriate. From here, you work closely with your personal care team to develop a recovery plan that evolves over time.
