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 opioid (including heroin) use, dependency and abuse (addiction). In study after study, medication assisted opioid treatment is proven to be the most effective method, significantly outperforming traditional forms of treatment that rely on counseling alone.
While most other opioid use 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 and heroin dependency. The Symetria Method consistently produces a patient success rate that is four times greater than the industry average.
How Does Medication Assisted Recovery Treatment for Opioid Dependence Work? How Can It Help Me Overcome Use, Dependency or Abuse (Addiction) and Withdrawal Symptoms?
Medication assisted recovery treatment for substance abuse involves the use of drugs (medications) to normalize brain chemistry and block the euphoric feeling associated with opioids. These medications also reduce cravings and normalize body functions. As part of The Symetria Method's comprehensive substance use, dependency and abuse (addiction) recovery treatment program, they’re useful for removing the common distractions that decrease a patient’s ability to recover.
