Benefits of medication-assisted treatment

Medical studies show that using medications in combination with therapy contributes to better outcomes and increases the likelihood of a successful, long-term recovery. Research studies show that MAT may reduce risk of death from overdose by as much as 60% in a year. When used properly, MAT is proven to be a highly-effective treatment component for substance misuse related to alcohol, opioids, and tobacco.

Medication-assisted treatment at Eleanor

As part of our comprehensive, evidence-based treatment plan, Eleanor Health’s MAT program includes the use of FDA-approved medications with behavioral therapy and counseling. By combining medication and therapy, MAT treats both the physical and mental symptoms of addiction at the same time.

Under the supervision of our physicians, our medical team will prescribe medications that safely block the effects of drugs and alcohol on the brain and body. This helps to eliminate or reduce your substance cravings and ease physical withdrawal symptoms. All of these medications share the same goal: to help you manage your addiction, adjust to treatment, and feel stable. Our physicians will work with you to review the benefits and risks of each option so we can find the right medication for your specific needs.
