(MAT) Medically Assisted Treatment
Despite being opposed by the substance abuse treatment field. Suboxone maintenance is being legitimized by the united states government and the health insurance carriers. If a heroin addict has been to multiple rehabilitation facilities and relapses every time, something new must be tried. Buprenorphine, the generic name for suboxone and subutex, stops the cravings for heroin and other opiates including Morphine, Oxycontin, Roxicodone, Percocet, and Vicodin. When Suboxone is used at the right dosage, the addict will become a productive member of society.
Residential Treatment, (PHP) Partial Hospitalization Program, and (IOP) Intensive Outpatient Program that include Medically Assisted Treatment with Suboxone is becoming a good option for chronic relapsers. Proponents of MAT say we need more of these treatment centers. Opponents of MAT, which include the majority of professionals in the substance field, and Narcotics Anonymous, say you are still using a narcotic even though it has positive benefits. Training for certified substance abuse therapists should include courses on medically assisted treatment as an accepted method and protocol in these facilities.
“As a therapist who treats opiate addicts, My opinion is Medically Assisted Treatment is coming, like it or not. Statistics show that what we are doing now to fight heroin abuse is not working. Time to get on board with suboxone maintenance. The opioid epidemic is getting worse every day and just going to meetings is not the answer for many addicts”. M.Price, delray Beach Florida.
Congress just approved a bill to allow doctors to treat 300 Buprenorphine patients at one time. This is still not enough to curb the opioid epidemic that is covering the nation in 2017. Medicine needs to be made available to addicts who need it. More funding should be made available and health insurance carriers need to cover Suboxone maintenance as any other medicine.
