Benefits of Medication Assisted Treatment

At Roots Recovery, our medication assisted treatment is seamlessly integrated into our individualized treatment programs, which include Day Treatment, Intensive Outpatient (IOP), and Outpatient levels of care. This integration ensures that MAT is not just an isolated service, but a harmonious part of a broader recovery plan. Our clients benefit from a variety of therapies – from individual and group sessions to family therapy – all underpinned by evidence-based modalities like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. By incorporating MAT into our programming, we empower our clients to access a full spectrum of recovery services, enhancing their journey towards wellness and recovery.

The inclusion of Sublocade in our MAT program underscores our commitment to providing our clients with the most advanced and effective treatments available. Sublocade, specifically used for opioid use disorder, serves as a critical tool in managing cravings and easing withdrawal symptoms. This allows our clients to fully engage in the therapeutic aspects of their treatment experience without the overwhelming challenge of physical dependency. It’s crucial to recognize that at Roots Recovery, Sublocade is more than just a medication; it’s a key component of a holistic treatment plan. This plan combines medical treatment with individualized clinical therapies and psychological support, as well as a safe and structured sober living environment that fosters healing and fellowship, paving the way for a well-rounded and sustainable recovery.

    MAT and Counseling

    Our medication assisted treatment program at Roots Recovery is designed to provide clients with multiple layers of support. By combining interventive medications with counseling and behavioral therapies, we are not only able to address the physical aspects of addiction, but also delve into the psychological underpinnings that can trigger significant emotional pain and suffering for our clients, and potentially lead to relapse. Our clients benefit from an array of behavioral therapies, including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, trauma-focused therapy, and other evidence-based practices. We also understand how isolating addiction can be, which is why our programming is designed to provide clients with a strong and positive community of their peers that are united by a common goal of finding peace and purpose in sobriety.

    Is MAT Right for Me?

    If you are grappling with opioid addiction, MAT could be a pivotal element in your journey to recovery. MAT is particularly effective for those struggling with opioid dependence, as it directly addresses the physical withdrawals and cravings that often pose significant challenges. This treatment, in combination with substance abuse counseling, offers a comprehensive approach to recovery, focusing on the physical, mental, and emotional facets of addiction. At Roots Recovery, we carefully assess each individual’s unique situation to determine if MAT is the most suitable and effective option for their recovery path.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What Types of Medications Are Used in MAT at Roots Recovery?

    At Roots Recovery, we currently offer Sublocade as the primary medication used in our MAT program. Sublocade has been shown to be effective and safe when administered by licensed professionals.

    How Is Sublocade Administered?

    Sublocade is administered as a subcutaneous injection, typically given once a month by a trained healthcare professional. The injection is usually done in the abdominal area, under the skin, where the medication is slowly released over time. This ensures a consistent level of medication in the body, helping to manage cravings and withdrawal symptoms effectively.

    What Is Sublocade Effective Against?

    Sublocade is an effective treatment specifically designed to combat opioid use disorder. It works by steadily releasing buprenorphine, which helps to reduce opioid cravings and withdrawal symptoms, making it easier for individuals to focus on their recovery journey. This medication is particularly beneficial in managing the physical dependency associated with opioid addiction, thereby supporting clients in maintaining long-term sobriety as part of a comprehensive treatment plan at Roots Recovery.

    What's the Difference Between Sublocade and Suboxone?

    Sublocade and Suboxone are both used in the treatment of opioid use disorder, but they differ in formulation and administration. Sublocade is given as a monthly subcutaneous injection, providing a steady release of buprenorphine, while Suboxone is typically taken daily in the form of sublingual films or tablets, and combines buprenorphine with naloxone. At Roots Recovery, Sublocade’s convenience and consistency in dosing make it an ideal choice as part of Roots Recovery’s comprehensive care approach.

    How Much Does Sublocade and MAT Cost at Roots Recovery?

    At Roots Recovery, we don’t believe in “one-size-fits-all” plans, as our treatment is customized to each client’s own unique struggles with opioid abuse. We do accept private health insurance, and most insurances will help cover the cost of your medication. However, your exact out-of-pocket cost will vary on a number of factors, including the type of health coverage you have, the level of care you require, your expected length of stay, and your prescription benefits. We know how difficult it is to ask for help with substance abuse, and our experienced admissions specialists are on hand to work directly with your provider, so you get the full benefit of your health insurance plan.
