Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is an effective treatment for opioid dependence that combines the use of prescription medications, including Suboxone and Vivitrol, with counseling and education.
Opioid use disorder is defined as a problematic pattern of opioid use that leads to serious impairment or distress. This can be the use of prescription opioids like Oxycodone or illicit opioids like heroin and fentanyl.
Three Points Healing uses FDA-approved medications to treat opioid use disorder (OUD). Medication-assisted treatment is considered to be the gold standard for OUD. Medications used for the treatment of OUD include buprenorphine (Suboxone®, Subutex®), and naltrexone (Vivitrol®). We also encourage and refer our patients to seek behavioral health services, such as counseling or group therapy.
Suboxone is highly regulated by the DEA, and therefore you will need a follow-up appointment at least every 1-2 weeks until stabilized and have proven compliance with the treatment plan and drug screening protocols. Monthly or even bi-monthly visits, with random drug testing, may be possible at the discretion of your physician once compliance with the treatment program has been established. A subsequent phone call will be included to see how the patient is doing with the initial dosing regimen prescribed.
