One of the reasons that many individuals don’t seek treatment is the unfortunate reputation that surrounds detox. People think treatment is always hard, uncomfortable, and painful. However, with a medication assisted treatment program, otherwise known as MAT, this doesn’t have to be true. Learn about the medication assisted treatment program in Los Angeles and how Westwind Recovery can use it to help you end the hold addiction has over you.
What is a Medication Assisted Treatment Program?
A medication-assisted treatment center uses medications to help ease uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms as you begin your treatment. Buprenorphine and naltrexone are two of the prescriptions that we may use to further diminish cravings and some of the additional adverse withdrawal symptoms. Using these medicines, we help you clear your mind so that you can concentrate on your treatments.
