Is Medication-Assisted Treatment with Suboxone Right for You?
Better Life Partners provides same-day medication-assisted treatment, no matter where you are in Massachusetts. We provide our members with the option of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) with Suboxone if deemed medically necessary. MAT is a form of opioid addiction treatment that usually combines medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD) with some form of behavioral therapy. MAT is going to look different for everyone, and you have the option of utilizing other resources alongside it.
A common misconception of MAT is that it is trading one addiction for another, but many studies have shown that MAT is a safe and effective form of opioid addiction treatment in both long-term and short-term treatment plans. We prescribe Suboxone for MAT, which is a medication composed of buprenorphine and naloxone that has been studied and FDA approved. Research has shown that MAT can help individuals decrease their chance of opioid dependence by reducing the chances of relapse and overdose, as well as decreasing withdrawal symptoms and cravings.
At Better Life Partners, we make sure a clinician is guiding you throughout your treatment process to answer any questions and concerns you might have about MAT. We will also help you set up weekly group counseling sessions with members of your community, these sessions are guided by a medical professional as well. You don’t have to go through treatment alone, we’ll make sure to support you in every way we can.
