Gateway: Medication Assisted-Treatment for Substance Abuse
IS MEDICATION-ASSISTED TREATMENT? Medication-Assisted
Treatment (MAT) is the use of FDA-approved medication to
treat a substance use disorder. All of Gateway Foundation’s treatment
centers have the ability to offer MAT to patients.
HOW IS MAT PRACTICED AT
GATEWAY FOUNDATION? Addiction Medicine is what we practice at Gateway Foundation.
After a comprehensive evaluation, our clinical and medical experts
create a personalized treatment program that includes counseling,
behavioral therapies and MAT, when deemed appropriate. All of the
medications utilized by Gateway Foundation are used as indicated.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF
MAT has been proven to help individuals modify their behaviors and
encourage a healthier lifestyle that aids lifelong recovery. It is most
beneficial when combined with behavioral therapies.
MAT can be used to treat an opioid
use disorder or an alcohol use disorder. For
individuals who are in Outpatient,
MAT is a viable option for individuals who wish to continue working
while maintaining recovery.
