Medication-Assisted Treatment in Agoura Hills, CA

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is an effective way to help people recover from certain substance use disorders, especially chemical dependency on opioids.

MAT combines FDA-approved medications with behavioral therapies to address both the physical and psychological symptoms of addiction. Medications for substance use disorders are administered by licensed doctors who specialize in addiction medicine and follow strict standards.

Benefits of Medication-Assisted Treatment

A robust amount of research shows treatment with FDA-approved medications is highly effective for opioid use disorders. In fact, MAT can cut a person’s chances of opioid-related death in half.

Medication-assisted treatment has a range of benefits. It can:

  • Reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms
  • Lower the risk of relapse
  • Sustain long-term recovery
  • Improve quality of life

Del Arroyo Recovery Center offers evidence-based Suboxone treatment in Agoura Hills, California.

Our supervised treatment programs may also include the use of other approved medications, including methadone and buprenorphine (Suboxone) for opioid dependence, and naltrexone and acamprosate (Campral) for alcohol use disorder.

MAT for Opioid Addiction

Medication-assisted treatment is an effective strategy for people struggling with addiction to opioid drugs. Opioid-blocking medicines stop the euphoric and sedative effects of opioids like OxyContin and opiates like heroin and morphine.

People with moderate to severe opioid use disorders are usually chemically dependent on the drug, making medications a necessary part of opioid treatment.

Opioid dependence can produce extremely uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. Medications help manage these symptoms so you can focus on recovery.

Del Arroyo offers evidence-based Suboxone treatment in Agoura Hills. Our Suboxone clinic is managed by licensed professionals who are trained in medication-assisted treatment for opioid use disorders.

MAT for Alcohol Use Disorder

When a person is chemically dependent on alcohol, withdrawal symptoms during detoxification can be severe or even life-threatening. That’s why it’s critical to seek medically supervised detox at a qualified treatment center, like Del Arroyo Recovery Center.

Even once the body is clear of alcohol, managing cravings can be a major challenge. Medication-assisted treatment can help. FDA-approved medications like naltrexone can help reduce both the rewarding effects of alcohol and cravings for the drug.

For people struggling with severe alcohol use disorder, MAT can significantly reduce the risk of relapse and complications from alcohol-related illness.
