Medication Assisted Treatment, Tampa, FL


Medication Assisted Treatment, also known as “MAT”, is a groundbreaking approach for treating alcohol, opiate and other addictions that combines behavioral therapy with FDA-approved medications such as Suboxone or Naltrexone and Vivitrol.

The Benefits Of MAT


MAT offers a promising approach, one that gives clients an ability to detox from drugs and/or alcohol much more comfortably and in most cases, in a relatively shorter period of time. It also addresses the specific causes of that chemical dependency. Transformations By The Gulf is proud to offer MAT as an evidence-based treatment option that can be tailored to clients’ individual needs in order to maximize the prospects of a successful recovery.

As part of an integrated plan of substance abuse care that treats the whole person, MAT during detox can dramatically alleviate the physical symptoms of withdrawal, such as pain, discomfort and cravings. The goal is for clients receiving MAT to be able to participate as comfortably and as quickly as possible in a daily residential treatment program that integrates other helpful, evidence-based interventions, such as group and individual therapies.

Under the careful supervision of an addiction-certified psychiatrist and attending medical team, and depending on a client’s specific needs, Beach House administers only those medications found to be most effective in treating alcohol, opiate and other drug dependencies.

Suboxone and Subutex


Suboxone and Subutex (buprenorphine) can effectively help those looking to find freedom from opiates achieve lasting sobriety, according to evidence-based studies. While usually not life-threatening, withdrawal from opiates like heroin and prescription painkiller medications like oxycodone or hydrocodone can be horribly uncomfortable — not to mention, a very real obstacle to getting treatment. Suboxone successfully alleviates these symptoms, including the cravings that can often precipitate relapse (and in some cases fatal overdose). In a great majority of cases, Suboxone is only a short-term intervention: once the medication has helped clients get through early recovery, it can be gradually tapered and eventually discontinued. In some cases — these are more the exception than the norm — long-term Suboxone may be needed.

Vivitrol


Vivitrol (naltrexone) is known for its effectiveness at decreasing alcohol and opiate cravings. The drug blocks natural opioid receptors in the brain, thereby deactivating the euphoric and sedative effects of drugs like heroin, morphine, codeine and alcohol. Vivitrol is available as a pill and a once-monthly injection.
