Our Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) treatment approach combines behavioral counseling with medication for higher levels of success.
Counseling is the main focus of MAT, with a prescription for medication provided under the guidance of a medical doctor.
The combination gives our doctors the ability to customize patient treatment plans based on each patient’s unique cravings and withdrawal. That makes MAT the most effective treatment program available.
How it’s used
Opioid Use Disorder
We use Suboxone, Zubsolv, Bunavail, and Sublocade for Opioid Use Disorder treatment.
All of these medications are FDA-approved and are buprenorphine products. Buprenorphine is an FDA-approved, highly studied, and regulated medication used to help individuals recover from opioid addiction.
It acts as a stabilizer in the body rather than as a narcotic. When taken as prescribed, buprenorphine helps patients function physically, emotionally, and mentally without impairment.
It also aids patients in engagement with counseling services to reach healthy goals that benefit the whole person.
Alcohol Use Disorder
We use Vivitrol, Naltrexone, and Acamprosate for Alcohol Use Disorder treatment.
Like other drugs, heavy alcohol use can lead to tolerance, dependence, and even abuse, which may require treatment.
Patients that abuse alcohol experience severe withdrawals, including dangerous ‘delirium tremens’ (DTs) which is marked by confusion, shivering, sweating, irregular heartbeat, and even seizures.
Harmful drinking may be reduced or eliminated with a combination of medication, counseling, and peer support.
Other Drugs – Benzos, Marijuana, Cocaine, Amphetamines
Other drugs like benzodiazepines, marijuana, cocaine, and amphetamines also contribute to the overall statistical abnormalities that make up substance use disorders.
Not all substance use disorders have on-label, or FDA approved drugs for treatment. A Pathway or Impact Healthcare physician will provide guidance to determine the best course of medication-assisted treatment for you.
Our Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is a treatment approach for all substance use disorders to treat the whole body through the combination of medication-assisted treatment and patient-specific counseling using our MATPlus® treatment approach.
We use evidence-based approaches and closely monitor the latest treatments coming available for all substance use disorders.
If you are suffering from dependence, we recommend consulting a Pathway or Impact Healthcare physician and Impact Behavioral counselor to determine the best course of treatment for you.
