About Medication Assisted Treatment at Centerstone

Is a Medication-Assisted Treatment Program the right choice for me?

Centerstone’s addiction services are 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 medication assisted treatment that is right for you. Treatment options include:

  • anti-depressants
  • buprenorphine
  • mood stabilizers
  • naltrexone tablets and injections

What are the benefits of choosing medication as a treatment option?

Medication-assisted treatment is one part of addiction recovery program’s 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 from addiction.

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?

  • revia – a non-addictive, non-narcotic blocking agent
  • suboxone – a combination of burprenorphine & naloxone, which acts as an anti-craving medication
  • vivitrol – a once-monthly naltrexone injection which reduces odds of relapse

Can medication-assisted treatment help reduce the stress and anxiety I have about quitting?

Yes! Our team will help you choose the right treatment options for you so that you can fully focus on your recovery. Medications help you to:

  • decrease cravings and using dreams
  • increase abstinent days
  • decrease heaving drinking days
  • provide coverage between doses
  • increase rates of recovery
  • decrease risk of relapse
