What Is MAT?

medication-assisted treatment outpatient

Recovering from a substance use disorder without medical intervention can be highly challenging. The discomfort of withdrawal can stop even the most dedicated people in their tracks, causing a relapse. Healing from addiction requires a multifaceted approach that simultaneously addresses mental, physical, and emotional health. Medication-assisted treatment is a therapeutic method that has helped many people achieve sobriety and prevent them from returning to self-destructive habits. 

At Georgia Sky Outpatient Detox, we provide every client with the highest-quality care, including medication-assisted treatment and withdrawal symptom relief. Combining FDA-approved medications with therapy and counseling, MAT offers a comprehensive solution to support sobriety and prevent a return to drug abuse.

Why Medication-Assisted Treatment Works

Withdrawal can be one of the most challenging hurdles in overcoming addiction. If you are physically and psychologically dependent on drugs, you may experience intense cravings, mood swings, dehydration, nausea, vomiting, anxiety, chills, and hallucinations when attempting to quit. That’s why at-home detox can be so risky, as these symptoms can be overwhelming and, in some cases, life-threatening.

One misconception is that MAT merely substitutes one addictive substance for another. However, this perception overlooks MAT’s fundamental nature. Think of medication-assisted treatment like the strategies used to manage other chronic diseases, such as diabetes or cancer. The medications we prescribe are non-addictive and administered in a controlled, short-term manner under medical supervision. This method significantly reduces the risk of developing a new addiction.

MAT’s effectiveness lies in its evidence-based approach, which has proven to significantly increase the success rate in addiction recovery. MAT enables you to focus more fully on healing by addressing concerns as they arise.

A Comprehensive Approach

MAT bridges the physical, biological, and behavioral aspects of addiction. We will customize your outpatient program to your specific needs, enhancing your quality of life and equipping you to handle stressful situations more effectively.

Georgia Sky Outpatient Detox provides a crucial alternative to inpatient treatment. This flexibility is vital if you are unwilling to leave your job, home, and family to get the help you need. Outpatient programming allows you to receive treatment while maintaining your daily responsibilities. This independence can be crucial for long-term success and personal empowerment.
