Medicine-Assisted Addiction Treatment
MEDICATION-ASSISTED ADDICTION TREATMENT
Medicated-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of FDA- approved medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance abuse disorders. The medication generally used to treat opioid addiction at New Hope Integrative Medicine is Buprenorphine. Although we are primarily a women's healthcare clinic, we do offer addiction treatment as well.
At New Hope Integrative Medicine, Buprenorphine is used in medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to help people reduce or quit their use of heroin or other opiates, such as pain relievers like morphine.
Approved for clinical use in October 2002 by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), buprenorphine represents the latest advance in medication-assisted treatment (MAT). Medications such as buprenorphine, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, provide a whole-patient approach to the treatment of opioid dependency. When taken as prescribed, buprenorphine is safe and effective.
Unlike methadone treatment, which must be performed in a highly structured clinic, buprenorphine is the first medication to treat opioid dependency that is permitted to be prescribed or dispensed in physician offices, significantly increasing treatment access. Under the the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023 (also known as Omnibus bill), qualified U.S. physicians who have met the training requirements can offer buprenorphine for opioid dependency in their practices if permitted by applicable state law.
