Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

Florida Addiction & Recovery Center

To enhance the availability of MAT, it is essential to overcome the stigma associated with medications commonly used in treating OUD. Furthermore, there is a pressing need to develop innovative therapies that improve the efficacy of medical treatments for OUD. At Florida Addiction and Recovery Center, we are dedicated to expanding treatment options and advancing therapeutic practices to better serve those affected by OUD.
The FDA has approved three medications for opioid dependence: buprenorphine, methadone, and naltrexone. All three are safe and effective when used in conjunction with counseling and psychosocial support. At our center, we ensure that every individual seeking treatment for OUD has access to these options. This allows our healthcare providers to tailor treatments to best meet the unique needs of each patient. Given the chronic nature of OUD, the necessity for ongoing MAT is periodically re-evaluated, with no set limit on the duration of maintenance treatment. For some, treatment may be a long-term or indefinite commitment, emphasizing the importance of personalized and continuous care.
