What is Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)?

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) involves the use of FDA-approved medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a "whole-patient" approach to the treatment of substance use disorders. MAT is particularly helpful for people with opioid and alcohol use disorders because specific medications exist to treat both.

Providing great care involves assessing a patient’s medical issues and developing a comprehensive plan of care. People with substance use disorders can benefit from prescribed medications to help them successfully “detox” (also known as “supervised medical withdrawal”) from substances and remain substance-free. Patients who are stabilized may also benefit from ongoing treatment with medications (also known as “medication-assisted treatment” or MAT) as part of a long-term recovery program.
Primary objectives for medication-assisted treatment include:
  • Prevent withdrawal, which is a primary concern for many patients

  • Reduce cravings and allow patients to reduce the use of substances

  • Allow patients to focus on the work of recovery and stay in treatment longer

  • Help patients get back to their work and family responsibilities

Effective medical management can help stabilize your life and allow you to achieve your goals.
What is Buprenorphine / Suboxone?

Buprenorphine (brand name: Suboxone) is an opioid medication used to treat opioid addiction in the privacy of a physician’s office. Buprenorphine can be dispensed for take home use, by prescription, unlike methadone which must be taken in person at a specially designated clinic. Buprenorphine has been shown to be a safe and effective treatment for people addicted to opioids.

What Is Naltrexone?

Naltrexone is a medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat opioid use disorders and alcohol use disorders. It comes in a pill form that can be taken daily (brand name: ReVia) or as an long-acting injection (Vivitrol). Naltrexone has been shown to be a safe and effective treatment for opioid and alcohol use disorder patients.

Do I have a substance abuse disorder? What is addiction?

Substance used disorders are surprisingly common with roughly 20 million people requiring treatment for addiction every year in the United States. Establishing a substance use disorder diagnosis requires a thorough evaluation by a licensed professional. In this video Dr. Neptune reviews the diagnostic criteria for substance abuse orders and how a diagnosis is made.

Adam Banks at Suntra was very helpful in my family member achieving recovery. He started with a long conversation about options and helped to make a plan. We had to do an intervention, he was with us the entire time. We had a million questions and he was patient with everyone. He should have been a school teacher. Very outstanding gentleman.

I have worked professionally with the team at Suntra. They have treated all of my clients with the utmost respect and dignity. There is no stigma around addiction with Suntra - they dive right in and figure out what's going on - and they help out. I have seen their interventions first hand - they approach addiction with love and understanding.
