Medical assisted treatment (MAT) is a type of tool that can help you see significant improvement in your recovery from drug and alcohol addiction. Medical and medication, assisted treatment may help improve your chances of overcoming addiction and limiting relapse risks. Our team at South Tampa Psychiatry offers this type of treatment to many of our clients. Could it help you, too? Find out by calling us at 866.273.5017 today.
What Is Medical Assisted Treatment?
It’s important to know there are two different treatments often confused using the MAT term. Both are services we offer.
Medical assisted treatment focuses on providing your body with the necessary medical care you need to heal. Drug and alcohol addiction often taxes your body’s organs and tissues. It can often create a situation where you feel ill and weak, especially if you are not eating well during your addiction. Our medical assisted treatment, then, works to help stabilize your medical needs. This treatment can make a big difference in your overall health and recovery ability.
Medication-assisted treatment, also called MAT, is another layer of support. We can use medicine for various things, including helping your body to heal. It is often used as a way to minimize your risks of withdrawal and intense cravings during the detox process. These withdrawal symptoms make it hard for a person to stop using for good.
For those with mental health disorders, such as bipolar disorder, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder, medications can also help you gain proper chemical balance in your brain. This treatment can help to improve your mental stability, aiding in supporting your overall healing.
Could MAT Help You?
Many men and women with drug and alcohol addiction or mental health disorders can benefit from access to this type of care. You may benefit from it if you:
- You have tried to stop using drugs and could not do so
- Have intense withdrawal symptoms when you don’t use
- Have relapsed previously
- Struggle with mental health symptoms when you don’t use
- Find it hard to balance mental health
When it comes to medication-assisted treatment or medical assisted treatment, our team at South Tampa Psychiatry can provide insight into whether it may be right for you. During an assessment, our team will determine what each of your needs is, ensuring you get the care that’s best suited for your long-term recovery success.
Why Use Medical Assisted Treatment?
While you are receiving care from our team, we’ll work closely with you to choose the right medications to manage mental health disorders and addiction withdrawal symptoms. We offer treatment options with complete medical supervision. It can help you to get through the detox process and help give you the support you need to gain mental stability.
With it, you may feel more like yourself. You may be able to confront any mental health disorders present. You also gain more clarity in making decisions for yourself.
