What is Medication-Assisted Treatment?

Research shows that Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is effective and should be made available to those seeking help. At Centerstone, we offer multiple drug treatment paths to recovery, including MAT.

MAT incorporates medications, counseling and behavioral therapies to treat substance use disorders and prevent opioid overdose.

Every year, a new report highlights the toll of drug overdoses in our communities. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 72,000 Americans died of drug overdoses in 2017 with most stemming from opioid use. Every one of those deaths means immeasurable pain for a parent, child, family and community.

Amidst the crisis we are facing, we must recognize that there is still hope and recovery is possible. Each pathway should provide you or your loved one with the best care that is focused on recovery, education and developing a support team throughout and after care for continued sobriety.

We believe in a thorough process backed by research that includes medication and a combination of effective drug treatment options. MAT complements standard treatment, with different paths available to achieve the ultimate goal of recovery. Centerstone’s MAT track will help reduce anxiety and provide you a safe and comfortable detox to help you enjoy your life again. Our emphasis is on letting the clients guide their goals, whether that’s obtaining housing, employment or healing broken relationships with their family.
