MAT Addiction Treatment in San Francisco

Addiction is always a complex issue that affects not only yourself but your loved ones and the people around you, including friends and coworkers. It is a serious disorder that causes changes to your brain chemistry and neural pathways, and although it is treatable, addiction cannot be completely reversed. This means that stopping drugs is only the first part of a long-term substance use disorder treatment plan that can lead you to recovery. It is not easy, but with perseverance, support, and dedication to your relapse prevention program for addiction, you will be able to quit drugs and stay sober long-term.

Nobody starts drinking or using drugs in the hopes of becoming an addict, but that is the end result in so many cases. Drugs mess with how the brain operates, meaning you cannot simply will yourself to stop using them, no matter how intelligent or strong you may be.

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) programs are addiction recovery programs provided in many detox and rehabilitation treatment centers that can help to treat physical dependence on drugs and alcohol through the use of prescription addiction medicine and medical care, along with a slower tapering-off of the drugs to not shock the system, which will help reduce discomfort, anxiety, pain, and cravings. A California MAT program is often provided alongside a substance abuse rehabilitation program that may be inpatient or outpatient, depending on your individual needs.

In rehab, you will focus on the behavioral, social, emotional, and psychological components of addiction, dealing with all aspects of your substance use disorder in a whole-patient approach to healing the body, mind, and spirit. Through therapy, counseling, health care, and various other integrated treatments, a medically assisted treatment program will ensure you stay safe and healthy and that you do not suffer as your body removes the toxins from your system and you adjust to your new normal.

What Is MAT?

MAT (medication-assisted treatment) is a drug detox program that is specially formulated to help people who have dangerous addictions to certain drugs and alcohol, providing integrated treatments including prescription medications and holistic care with other rehabilitation treatments like therapy, holistic treatments, behavioral health treatments, physical fitness, and support groups, providing all the help you may need to stop the use of drugs and alcohol without suffering, and to help you clear your head so you can focus on getting the help you need and moving forward in life without turning back to substance abuse.

Some drugs can be scary to quit. Heroin and other opioid addictions, for example, are well known for their difficult, painful, and distressing withdrawal symptoms during opioid treatment. Fear of suffering from withdrawal is a major barrier for many people considering addiction treatment in San Francisco. MAT programs that use medications like methadone, suboxone, or Subutex, as treatment for opioid dependency will take care of cravings and stop the worst of the discomfort, allowing you to take in your therapy and other treatments safely.

Benzodiazepine drugs are another type of substance that can also cause serious withdrawal symptoms like panic and seizures that can be dangerous to your health if you do not slowly ease your intake, under a doctor’s prescribed tapering-off schedule with medical supervision.

Quitting alcohol is often very difficult as well, as it is a legal substance that creates some of the worst and most dangerous withdrawal symptoms of any drug, a surprising fact to many people. Alcohol withdrawal can range from mild to severe, causing discomfort, anxiety, seizures, hallucinations, and a dangerous brain disorder called Delirium Tremens (also known as “DTS”). Quitting cold turkey is never recommended when it comes to alcohol, and if you have been binge drinking or drinking heavily, a medication-assisted treatment program is recommended to ensure dangerous symptoms do not occur and you do not suffer pain and serious cravings as your body adjusts to the lack of alcohol in your system.

Medically assisted treatment programs can help with common withdrawal symptoms like:

  • Fever, chills, shivering, goosebumps, and other flu-like symptoms
  • Vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea
  • Pain and discomfort including muscle aches and headaches
  • Tremors/shaking
  • Increases in heart rate and blood pressure
  • Seizures
  • Insomnia and restlessness
  • Delirium tremens

Doctors and nurses are present for treatments and can provide care if you are having any other adverse health reactions to your detox as well. Psychiatric symptoms like hallucinations, depression, anxiety, paranoia, or psychosis may be treated through a dual diagnosis program for co-occurring disorders, with therapy and psychiatric medication.

The medications provided in a MAT program are not magic pills, you will still need to go to an inpatient and/or outpatient rehab program and follow through with relapse prevention strategies and other care to remain in long-term recovery, but the medication-assisted treatment makes the process easier to get through, even if you have been mixing drugs and/or alcohol, using large amounts of drugs, or using serious drugs for a long time. A MAT program is the safest way to allow your body to slowly adjust to the chemical changes in the brain and body as you regain your health and reframe your mindset through rehabilitation processes.

What to Expect During MAT?

During a medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program, you will either live inside a rehab facility, move into a sober living home, or continue living at home, depending on your individual needs. Many people will begin MAT treatments while in inpatient detox and rehab and then continue taking the medications for months afterward, with continued outpatient rehab treatments and support.

Most medically assisted treatment (MAT) plans are integrated into some kind of treatment program that includes therapy, behavioral health treatments, physical health care, counseling, life skills programs, and/or mental health care in a dual diagnosis program that treats co-occurring disorders like bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression, borderline personality disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. You will get the tailored addiction treatments you need as you continue to take your prescription medications, learn new ways to think, behave, and work through stress as you regain your physical and mental health, and learn to take back control over your life.

Medically assisted treatment programs will allow you to focus on the future and what lies ahead in life without suffering from pain, distress, restlessness, and drug cravings. Detoxing is never easy, but in a MAT program, you will have helpful prescription medications and integrated treatments that will help you quit using drugs and alcohol without suffering and without putting yourself in unnecessary danger. The medications provided will satisfy your body’s cravings without any euphoric high or other pleasant effects, so they will stop withdrawal symptoms without creating a new addiction, thus preventing dangerous relapses, saving lives, and preventing opioid overdoses after rehab, while improving your ability to live an independent sober life as you move forward in your substance abuse treatment.

At Novo Detox, we offer medication-assisted treatments that include Suboxone, Subutex, and benzodiazepine tapers in our small 6-bed facility in the heart of Bel-Aire.
