Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-Assisted Treatment at Taos Recovery Center

Various medications exist today that can help addicts heal from the mental and physical effects of addiction. This is called medication-assisted treatment, or MAT. MAT is just one way that Taos Recovery Center helps our patients in New Mexico overcome the trials of substance abuse. Learn more about our medication treatment program, below!

What Recovery Medication Helps With

The specific medications that we use varies on the type and intensity of the addiction. The effects of these medications helps with several facets of addiction recovery, including the following:

  • Reduces the risk of relapse by reducing the effect of cravings.
  • Helps patients get better sleep.
  • Is mood-regulating, preventing overreactions.
  • Helps patients keep a clear head.
  • Reduces the impact of co-occurring mental disorders, such as anxiety or depression. 

What to Know About MAT

There are some significant misconceptions about medication-assisted treatment that we want our patients to know. Firstly, MAT is not a suitable replacement for other types of treatment methods, such as advanced therapy and personal development. It is only a supplementative tool that can lessen the hold of particular substances.

Secondly, MAT may not be the right option for each addict that we treat. Our trained staff take great care to examine each case, carefully, to determine whether medication is right for a particular patient.

Thirdly, MAT isn’t a final step in treatment. It is more of an intermediary step to safely transition an addict from the physical dependence of particularly harmful substances. During treatment, patients who undergo MAT at Taos Recovery Center will also undergo various therapeutic and educational modalities.
