The Most Effective Treatment Available

Helps More Patients, Longer

Addiction treatment and recovery doesn’t come in a neatly packaged box. Because drug addiction and alcohol use disorder affect people from all walks-of-life differently, treatment programs must be just as individualized. Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) programs provide patients more flexibility in their care for a better detox and recovery experience, increasing the likelihood of successful, long-term sobriety.

While some drug rehabs offer medical detox, Scottsdale Recovery Center also offers MAT as a solution to ease a patient through the detoxification process and to hinder unexpected episodes of Post-Acute Withdrawal Symptoms (PAWS), which can occur years after the initial drug detox.

MAT Is a Harm Reduction

Model of Addiction Treatment

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) refers to MAT as a Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP #43). Its benefits to patients suffering from long term drug or alcohol abuse allow the body and the brain to gradually taper off of addicted substances by transitioning to a safer drug, administered and monitored by licensed, medical staff. As a result, treatment and recovery are better managed with ongoing assessments of how the customized program is working and whether modifications need to be made to further enhance the recovery process.

Better Treatment

More Options

Those looking to improve their lives by removing chemical dependencies have more options with our MAT programs. Addiction to opioids (prescription pain pills or heroin) or alcohol are associated with painful withdrawals during the initial phase of detox – MAT changes that.

Patients receive added assurance and greater peace of mind throughout medical detox with the integration of the right MAT program. However, an Inpatient Residential program may not be necessary for everyone. In addition, not every patient can afford this type of care, nor will their insurance provider cover this type of treatment. This is where our MAT program through the Intensive Outpatient (IOP) facility can be a lifesaver, literally.

Medication Assisted Treatment

Statistics have shown time and time again that an extended addiction rehab program (at least 90 days) strengthens patients’ abilities in restoring physically, emotionally and spiritually. In addition to the body and mind needing ample time to heal, recovery is all about relearning behaviors to foster healthier relationships and better ways of coping with day-to-day stresses as well as the traumatic events that can happen by surprise. The true test of recovery doesn’t happen in a safeguarded facility but the moment a patient leaves our doors and begins to reintegrate into society.

How a patient can deal with varied emotions and responses to those emotions can mean the difference between sustained recovery and addiction relapse. MAT provides a buffer to stay the course of sobriety from Inpatient Residential, Outpatient, Sober Living and beyond. Our MAT program is Level 2-WM Ambulatory Withdrawal Management with Extended On-Site Monitoring, the highest outpatient level of care available determined by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM).

Scottsdale Recovery Center IOP MAT programs include:

  • Naltrexone – pill form, for opioid or alcohol addiction
  • Vivitrol – injection or implant, for opioid or alcohol addiction
  • Suboxone /Buprenorphine – for heroin addiction

We only employ trusted, accredited, licensed and compassionate practitioners. These include a Medical Director, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, RNs and LPNs available to monitor each patient as they receive the medication on site, how they respond and careful management of their overall health.

Patients respond well to the benefits of our IOP MAT program as they still receive the support needed while meeting personal obligations, such as work or school, without interruption. Recovery is a confidential, private process. Medication-assisted treatment program options allow more people the opportunity to receive the help they need, longer, through a greater level of care and a better recovery experience.
