Addiction is a powerful force that damages families, leads to jobs lost, and claims lives. Yet, treatment and rehabilitation can seem daunting and uncomfortable to those suffering in the isolation caused by their addiction. We at Freedom Now continually make efforts to people who have lost themselves in substance abuse to reclaim their life and reunite with their families.

It is true that a successful treatment and recovery will look different per the individual, yet, our hope is that every one who takes part in our program will see a difference even if the journey to recovery is difficult and trying. Treatment for substance abuse and drug addiction can be a painful experience, especially concerning withdrawal symptoms. That is why Freedom Now makes Medication-Assisted Treatment our primary source for addiction treatment.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is a very common approach to treating those struggling with drug addiction, especially opioid addiction. Freedom Now utilizes MAT in order to limit the withdrawal symptoms in patients so that their recovery process is as painless as possible while also alleviating the mind of cravings in order to effectively pursue counseling.

What is MAT?

Medication-Assisted Treatment is the use of medication alongside behavioral therapy and counseling. It is a whole-care practice that becomes individualized per the individual needs of each client regarding their own battle with substance use disorder and/or opioid use. We understand that every person comes from a different background and has their own history with substance use and opioid addiction. MAT specializes in developing a unique treatment plan that aids each patient in their recovery while being mindful of work priorities, schooling, and time with family.

Suboxone Addiction Treatment

There are several medications that are FDA-Approved used in MAT:

  • Buprenorphine
  • Methadone
  • Naltrexone

Freedom Now uses a combination of Buprenorphine and Naloxone (called Suboxone) alongside counseling and psychological aid in substance addiction related treatment. Each of the medications listed above, as well as Suboxone, are used to help alleviate painful withdrawal symptoms (i.e. seizures) and physiological cravings in order to care for the client wholly.

 

Purpose of MAT/Suboxone Addiction Treatment

Once contacted, we help work with our clients to decide and schedule the best treatment plan moving forward that best matches their schedule. This sets us apart as we focus on unique, individualized care proctored by professional caretakers and staff who are well trained in substance use disorders and opioid addiction. Our substance abuse treatment programs include:

  • Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)
  • Mental Health Disorders (with Underlying Substance Dependence)
  • Addiction Treatment (Opioid use, Benzos, Alcohol, etc.)
  • Counseling and Behavioral Therapies
  • Medication Management

Each of these programs, some going hand-in-hand with others, are an essential part of treating those suffering from drug abuse, alcohol addiction, and mental health issues related to their addiction.

The primary purpose of MAT is to tackle mental health issues with underlying opioid dependence, opioid addiction, and other substance use disorders while prioritizing counseling and psychological treatment through behavioral therapy programs. Utilizing these treatments enables the client in their treatment of drug abuse and alcohol addiction while improving their daily life and shining light on future possibilities. We desire for each of our clients to experience a sustained recovery through MAT.

Fear of Withdrawal

Medication-Assisted Treatment programs aid those in recovery from drug use and alcohol addiction. The first step to approaching a healthy and proactive recovery is helping eliminate the fears of withdrawal with our clients. At times, depending on the severity of the addiction, withdrawal symptoms can be life threatening. MAT keeps that in mind and works toward revitalizing the body and detoxing the brain from harmful chemicals.

Stabilizing Body & Mind

Freedom Now’s substance abuse treatment programs are centered on whole-care treatment for our clients. Our belief and purpose is to address any mental health issues that our clients may be facing while also addressing, if applicable, any underlying drug addiction or alcohol abuse that our clients may be using as self-medication. Our programs include individual and group therapy sessions alongside drug addiction, alcohol dependence, or other substance use disorders. Not only do we offer these programs, but also various other clinical and medical health services.
