  • Individualized therapy
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy
  • Family support
  • Peer support

What is Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)?

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) protocol is an evidence-based practice. It combines medication therapies with substance abuse counseling and social support. The treatment is not for everyone. However, it is essential for people struggling with alcohol or drug addiction.

Patients receive medication to curb cravings as part of an outpatient program that promotes recovery.

CMH Addiction Recovery utilizes two primary medications to curb cravings. Vivitrol (Depot Naltrexone) and Oral Naltrexone treat alcohol and opioid dependence. They are most helpful when used in a treatment program that has counseling and support. We also use Acamprosate (Campral) for alcohol cessation and Buprenorphine (Subutex, Suboxone, Zubsolv) to treat opioid dependence. However, the addiction recovery program does not dispense or prescribe Methadone.

Studies have proven that patients have a higher chance of staying sober through MAT as well as:

  • Greatly reducing their risk of relapse
  • Blocking the euphoric properties of certain substances
  • Reducing withdrawal symptoms
  • Preventing or reducing cravings
  • Supporting behavioral therapy

About CMH Addiction Recovery

Patients share in the decision-making process with setting goals and planning ways to change. 

The first clinical assessment entails a detailed bio-psycho-social history conducted by a qualified substance abuse counselor. During the one-on-one interview, the counselor helps identify how drug and alcohol use harms the person’s major life areas.

The counselor works with the program physician to develop a case-specific treatment plan based on the individual's needs and strengths.

Board certified physician Kurt Bravata, M.D., orders and evaluates a medical assessment, including labs and drug screens. A customized medical treatment plan directs treatment over the next 12 months.

All aspects of the treatment are completely confidential. The ARP welcomes family or friends to attend appointments. They are a great support for a loved one's new life free from addiction.

How Can I Pay for MAT Treatment?

Medicare, Medicaid and most major insurance plans cover ARP services. If you do not have insurance or are underinsured, CMH offers financial assistance.
