The Science is Clear Medication-Assisted Treatment for opioid use disorder is over 5X as effective at preventing relapse and overdose than abstinence-based treatment.

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders.

BUPRENORPHINE (Suboxone, Subutex)

Sublingual Buprenorphine is a medication that comes in film and tablet form. By taking the place of the opioids used by patients, buprenorphine prevents cravings and makes withdrawal from opioids feel less intense. Patients on buprenorphine report feeling normal, functional and having a clear mind all day long, which allows them to make positive choices the way that they did prior to their addiction. When buprenorphine is combined with counseling and other forms of support, it can be highly effective in helping patients recover from addiction.

NALTREXONE (Vivitrol)


Naltrexone is a monthly injectable medication that is useful for the treatment of opioid addiction and alcohol addiction. Vivitrol has been clinically proven to reduce the probability of relapse. For those suffering from an opioid addiction, Vivitrol may be initiated only after opioid detoxification. Vivitrol may also be used by patients who have completely tapered off of buprenorphine (Suboxone, Zubsolv, generics) or methadone to prevent relapse. This medication binds to receptors in the brain and prevents patients from feeling any pleasant effects of opioids or alcohol.

Medical and addiction experts use Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) in combination with behavioral therapies to address opioid addiction. Addiction is a chronic disease with long-lasting effects and MAT is an effective way to lessen cravings, allowing people to focus on therapeutic treatments and successfully function throughout their day. This is a short-sighted view about MAT is that it merely substitutes one drug for another. Because addiction is a disease, treating addiction with medication is similar to the way that other diseases are treated.
