What is Medication-Assisted Treatment with Suboxone?

Medication-assisted treatment, also known as MAT, is a form of whole-person opioid addiction treatment that combines different resources to make sure you’re getting all of your recovery needs met. MAT usually consists of medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD) and behavioral therapy, but it looks different for everyone. We want treatment to work with you, not against you, which is why you get to choose what you get out of our treatment program.

We prescribe Suboxone for MAT, which is a medication that has been shown to be safe and effective at treating opioid addiction. Suboxone is safe to be used in short-term and long-term treatment, so you’re able to use it for however long is medically necessary. Studies have shown that MAT can help individuals living with addiction by reducing unpleasant withdrawal symptoms and cravings, and it can also help reduce opioid overdose-related deaths.

When you receive MAT with Better Life Partners, you have a clinician guiding you throughout the whole process. You never have to go through recovery alone, and we’ll work with you to make sure your recovery goals are being met. Any medications prescribed for MAT will be sent to a pharmacy of your choice.
