Aiming for better outcomes.

In 2021, there were an estimated 78,000 fatal opioid overdoses. At Fusion Recovery, our goal is to reduce fatalities, provide effective opiates treatment, and make recovery as smooth as possible. We understand that one of the challenges of recovery is relapse. We want to provide all the tools to effectively prevent relapse, and medication-assisted treatment is one of those tools. MAT is part of a comprehensiveaddiction rehab plan that aims to decrease overdose, increase treatment retention, decrease drug use, and improve survival rates.


What is Medication Assisted Treatment?

Medication-assisted treatment, or MAT, is the use of medications in combination with evidence-based therapies. MAT is clinically effective in treating opioid use and alcohol use disorders and aids in easing withdrawal symptoms for other substances. Integrating MAT into a alcohol or drug addiction help program sets our clients up for long-term success and helps sustain recovery.

Studies have shown that using medication-assisted treatment has reduced deaths from overdose by more than 50%. While MAT is not a cure for substance use disorder, it is effective in treating and managing withdrawal symptoms. Some may need MAT for a longer period of time as a part of maintenance treatment. The ultimate goal is to remove the dependence on all substances.

Understand Your Options

MAT is primarily used in opiates treatment. Opioid use disorder is an addiction to these substances. This includes prescription pain medications such as hydrocodone and oxycodone, as well as street drugs such as heroin. Under medical supervision, we administer these medications to alleviate withdrawal symptoms and manage drug cravings. Understand the different medications available and how we use them to effectively treat addiction.

Methadone treatment is used to treat opioid use disorder and dependency. When taken as prescribed, methadone is an effective treatment option. Methadone must be administered by a licensed opioid treatment program (OTP). Fusion Recovery is a certified OTP, and we administer daily doses of methadone to our clients.

By attaching to the same brain receptors as opioids, methadone maintenance treatment is able to reduce drug craving and relieve the physical and psychological pain of withdrawal without producing an intense high. Methadone lessens the desire to use opioids, and the goal is to give methadone as a maintenance treatment and then taper off of it gradually.

Suboxone treatment is a medication commonly prescribed to help individuals who are recovering from opioid addiction. This medication contains two active ingredients, buprenorphine and naloxone, which work together to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms.

Buprenorphine is an opioid medication that helps to relieve withdrawal symptoms, while naloxone works to prevent misuse and abuse of the medication. Suboxone is typically administered as a film or tablet that is dissolved under the tongue and should only be taken under the supervision of a healthcare provider. This medication has been found to be effective in helping individuals overcome opioid addiction and achieve long-term recovery.

Naltrexone treatment is a long-acting opioid blocking agent. It works by blocking the brain from the euphoric effects of substances. Naltrexone is used to treat opioid addiction and alcohol use disorders. Patients will begin taking Naltrexone after detox, as it does not relieve withdrawal symptoms. Naltrexone can be a helpful part of the recovery process as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.
