Medication Assisted Therapy
Medication Assisted Therapy (MAT) consist of the use of cutting edge medications to treat physiological and psychological conditions. Methadone has been successfully utilized since the 1960's to treat opiate dependency. Methadone is a synthetic medication which mimics the effects of opiates in brain cells. It is long lasting and normally requires only one dose administered daily. The medication eliminates cravings and withdrawals associated with opioid deficiency and one physician recently stated, "There is no medicine in history that is as effective in doing what it says it does as methadone." In other words, the efficacy of methadone is off the charts.
