It might seem like an odd concept: using drugs to gain control over drug use, especially for people addicted to opioids such as heroin or prescription painkillers. Many people in the behavioral health and substance use disorder field understand what medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is and how it can benefit some individuals struggling with addiction—opioid addiction, especially.
The world of evidence-based substance use disorder treatment is a changing one.
In recent years, SAMSHA has begun to rephrase the term ‘medication-assisted treatment’ to ‘medication for opioid use disorder (MOUD)’ to reinforce that medication can play a primary role in opioid addiction treatment.
The Promises P.A.T.H. outpatient treatment locations provide MOUD as a treatment option for those diagnosed with opioid use disorder. Read further on what MOUD is and how it can help the opioid recovery process.
Medication for opioid use disorder is a replacement term for ‘medication-assisted treatment’ and calls for a greater emphasis on medicine as valuable opioid use disorder treatment options. MOUD helps people who want to stop using opioids by combining evidence-based therapies with certain medications. These medications can help increase the chances of a person sticking with their recovery goals while also decreasing overdose chances.
It takes a unique blend of therapy and medication to help those seeking a sober life from opioid use. Therapy will help you address the deeper parts of your mental and emotional health to get to the core of your drug use. Medication for opioid use will help you stay on track with your treatment by decreasing cravings and minimizing detox symptoms.
Evidence-based therapy approaches that work with MOUD include:
The Promises P.A.T.H. MOUD outpatient treatment programs will also educate you on relapse resilience techniques, mindfulness practices and trauma recovery.
Medications for MOUD will depend on your diagnostic assessment results and the treatment plan that our Promises P.A.T.H. team builds for you. Each of our care plans offers a unique blend of options, depending on your personal needs. Medication options for our MOUD treatment program include:
Opioid use disorder, as with any substance use disorder, means there is a likely chance that mental health disorders are also at play. Addiction and mental health conditions often go hand-in-hand. Our Promises P.A.T.H. locations offer dual diagnosis treatment programs for those who may be also be experiencing mental health problems such as depression, anxiety or bipolar disorder, along with their addiction.
The Promises P.A.T.H. programs offer a safe space to work through opioid addiction. We want to see you thrive as your most authentic self without the need for opioids. Our outpatient addiction treatment services help you focus on your recovery while providing more flexibility to manage your daily life.
PHPs offer the highest level of outpatient care and require the largest time commitment. Clients enrolled in this form of treatment travel to their treatment facility at least five days a week. They devote several hours to treatment or supportive therapy during each visit.
Intensive outpatient treatment has a lower time commitment than a PHP, requiring up to a few hours a day, a few days a week. Intensive outpatient programs work best for people who have a strong dedication to their treatment plan. This requires a healthy support system and practical strategies to avoid relapse.
Like intensive outpatient treatment, virtual intensive outpatient programs offer the same time commitment and program structure but allow clients to call in via a secure virtual video service.
Our goal is to get you to a place where you feel secure in your sobriety. That’s why every client who works through our programs qualifies for the Rooted Alumni program after they complete their treatment plan. Self-help groups also allow people to learn from others who have experience with sober living. Some examples include Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous. There are also 12-step alternatives such as SMART Recovery and Refuge Recovery.
