Medication Assisted Therapy

Are you in crisis?

Medication Assisted Therapy provides care to people struggling with addiction to opiate based substances. MAT is a medical procedure of replacing an illicit or addicting opioid, with a longer acting but less euphoric opioid; Methadone or Buprenorphine are two commonly used drugs and are taken under medical supervision. The overall purpose behind using an opioid substitution drug is its capacity to assist the patient in gaining stability. It also provides the opportunity for the substance user to experience a reduced level of withdrawal symptoms and drug cravings while not producing the euphoric effects often experienced with illicit drug use.

Medication Assisted Therapy is a proven effective treatment for improving the overall health and wellbeing of people experiencing opiate use disorders and have lead to a reduction of opioid related deaths, and a decrease in financial expenditures related to drug-related crime and healthcare.
