Medicated Assisted Treatment Florida

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) can be used for the purposes of detoxification as well as assist you in maintaining long term recovery. As it pertains to the detoxification process, individuals who are addicted to opioids (hydrocodone, oxycodone, heroin, fentanyl, etc.) typically do not die from withdrawal; however, the symptoms can be grueling, and many feel as if they are going to die. By utilizing buprenorphine or Suboxone, when one begins to feel those dreaded withdrawal symptoms, we can rapidly (within one to 2 hours) help reduce the withdrawal experience to a very tolerable level and, within a little longer period of time, we can help minimize your cravings as well as the remainder of your withdrawal symptoms. The vast majority of individuals experience relatively rapid relief from what you have experienced as a dreaded vicious cycle: spending so much time and money buying your drugs, using your drugs and then to quickly go through severe withdrawal only to keep the cycle going. The cycle seems to be endless and hopeless. Let us help you end that cycle which has been so painful for you and your loved ones.

Keeping the cycle from returning can also be very difficult. Despite the pain and consequences, because of how these drugs have affected your life and your body chemistry, the return to the addicted lifestyle is inevitable for so many. Recovery is an answer for a more sane way of thinking, but your body’s chemistry is unstable for up to 2 years (sometimes longer). During this time, one can experience what is called post-acute withdrawal symptoms (a few of which can be: intense anxiety, restlessness, fatigue, and depression). These symptoms can make it exceedingly difficult to effectively make the changes needed to sustain a lifelong journey of recovery. Buprenorphine or Suboxone via our MAT services can help stabilize your body’s chemistry to the point that you can feel comfortable with no withdrawal symptoms and not have to wrestle with those horribly bothersome cravings.  MAT will give you the clear head and symptom-free existence that will allow you to work with other patients and our talented staff to begin a fulfilling life of recovery, where miracles truly happen. Finally, when you no longer need the assistance of MAT, we will slowly and safely return you to a totally drug-free life of recovery.
