Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
Is Medication-Assisted Treatment the right choice for me?
Centerstone is here to support you on your journey to long-term recovery. Our MAT track will help reduce anxiety and provide you a safe and comfortable detox to help you enjoy your life again.
We’ll listen to your concerns and help you choose the treatment that is right for you. Treatment options include:
- mood stabilizers
- naltrexone tablets and injections
What are the benefits of choosing medication as a treatment option?
Medication-assisted treatment is a part of treatment for substance use. FDA-approved medications are used to calm overly-active areas of the brain, reduce cravings and increase your chances of long term recovery.
Along with MAT, our addiction centers offer a state-of-the-art approach to help begin your journey towards successful recovery. You will learn coping skills and become more aware of your relapse triggers.
What are the medications used for treatment of opioid and alcohol addiction?
- vivitrol – a once-monthly naltrexone injection which reduces odds of relapse
- revia – a non-addictive, non-narcotic blocking agent
- suboxone – a combination of burprenorphine & naloxone, which acts as an anti-craving medication
Can medication help reduce the stress and anxiety I have about quitting?

- decrease cravings and using dreams
- increase abstinent days
- decrease heaving drinking days
- provide coverage between doses
