How does MAT Work?
In the same way that medication can treat other chronic diseases, medication can also treat some substance use disorders. Combined with behavioral health treatment, and recovery support, MAT supports people in achieving and staying in recovery.
Many people may need help cutting back or stopping their substance use. They can get this help through treatment with MAT.
Taking MAT is no different than taking a medication to control diabetes or heart disease. MAT helps people get back to a normal state of mind. It also helps people cope with withdrawal symptoms and cravings, allowing them to live a healthy life. Taking medications for substance use disorders does not cause a new addiction. It is not the same as switching from one drug to another. It helps patients manage their addiction and maintain recovery.
Treatment with medication can help people stop drinking alcohol or using opioid drugs like heroin and other prescription drugs such as Vicodin®, OxyContin®, and Percocet® .
No impact on your DUI program. No cost to participate.
