What is Medication Assisted Treatment?
A Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) program is a combination of psychosocial therapy and approved medication. It is the most effective intervention to treat substance use disorder, including opioid use. MAT saves lives while increasing the likelihood that a person will remain in treatment, to learn the skills needed and build a network for successful long-term recovery.
The consequences of untreated addiction can be tragic for the individual, family, and community. Logansport Memorial Hospital has implemented a Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) program to help individuals suffering from opioid addiction.
Opioid addiction is a chronic disease like heart disease or diabetes, that affects the user's brain. A chronic brain disease like opioid addiction is a medical condition that can last for a person’s entire life. However, by managing the addiction, a person can regain a healthy, productive life.
Most people cannot just walk away from opioid addiction. They need help.
The Office Based Addiction Treatment team recognizes this is a difficult time and that change is hard. Together, we hope to help you build skills to become successful in recovery. How you implement the changes to your behavior and lifestyle will be a combination of learning the necessary skills to manage uncomfortable feelings and situations, prevent relapse, and build a network that will support your recovery.
No referral is needed, individuals or family/friends of an individual can call (574) 725-3468 to enroll in the program.
