Treatment for Morphine Addiction, how we can help
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is when medications are administered to the individual to lessen opioid withdrawal symptoms.
Medication-assisted treatment is one of the leading treatment regimens that is used to combat the opioid epidemic and to help treat opioid use disorder Withdrawing from opioids without the use of medication, known as unassisted withdrawal, is not life-threatening, but it is uncomfortable and can increase the rate of relapse.
The medicines that are given to ease the withdrawal effects contain a low-dose and long-acting opioid. Methadone, Naltrexone, and Suboxone are FDA approved medications that are used to help alleviate opioid withdrawal symptoms.
Psychotherapy is also needed to help individuals develop positive coping mechanisms and behaviors to deal with their underlying triggers and stressors.
