What is Medication Assisted Treatment

Here at New Dawn Treatment Centers, we only use Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opiate addictions.

MAT

MAT involves the use of medications, paired with counseling and behavioral therapies, to treat substance use disorders on a “whole-patient” basis. Our MAT programs have been clinically driven and are tailored to meet the individual needs of each patient. All medications used in MAT are approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

MAT can help people struggling with addiction sustain recovery and reduce opioid overdoses. MAT is also used to reduce or prevent opioid overdoses, according to recent research.

MAT is primarily used to treat addiction to opioids such as heroin and prescription pain relievers containing opiates. The prescribed medication normalizes brain chemistry, blocks the euphoric effects of opioids, relieves physiological cravings, and normalizes body functions without the harmful and euphoric effects of the substance used.

Why Use Medication Assisted Treatment

In 2020, an estimated 2 million people had an opioid use disorder which includes prescription pain medication containing opiates and heroin.

It has been shown that MAT significantly reduces the need for inpatient detoxification services for these patients, and it has been clinically effective. MAT provides a comprehensive, individually tailored program of medication and behavioral therapy that addresses the needs of most patients. MAT is a treatment approach that aims to improve patient survival and retention in treatment.  Its ultimate goal is to provide individuals with the tools they need to live a self-directed life.

This treatment approach has been shown to:

  • Improve patient survival
  • Increase retention in treatment
  • Decrease illicit opiate use and other criminal activity among people with substance use disorders
  • Increase patients’ ability to gain and maintain employment
  • Improve birth outcomes among women who have substance use disorders and are pregnant
What Medications Are Used For MAT

FDA has approved several different medications to treat opioid use disorders. MAT medications relieve the withdrawal symptoms and psychological cravings that cause chemical imbalances in the body. Medications used for MAT are evidence-based treatment options and do not just substitute one drug for another.

Opioid Dependency Medications

  • Buprenorphine, methadone, and naltrexone are used to treat opioid use disorders to short-acting opioids such as heroin, morphine, and codeine, as well as semi-synthetic opioids like oxycodone and hydrocodone. These MAT medications are safe for months, years, or even a lifetime.

Opioid Overdose Prevention Medication

  • Naloxone is used to prevent opioid overdose by reversing the toxic effects of the overdose. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), naloxone is one of several essential medications to a functioning health care system.

How Can I Pay for Treatment?

Private Cash Pay

If you do not have insurance or prefer to pay cash out of pocket, please reach out for a confidential call to discuss treatment options as well as cost.

Insurance is accepted.

Many alcohol and drug rehab centers will advertise that “insurance is accepted”, but if you look at the fine print on their website, they will usually disclose that YOU are responsible for billing your insurance company. This means that they are actually NOT a preferred provider with your health plan, and that you will have to pay the FULL cost of treatment at admission. That is a big risk to take with tens of thousands of dollars, and a heavy burden to carry while in early recovery.

Insurance Verification You Can Trust

At New Dawn, there is no fine print when we say that insurance is accepted. We will verify your benefits for you, and tell you during the pre-admission process exactly what your out-of-pocket expenses will be. We will never charge you more than your copay or deductible for covered services, and we are experts at getting as much treatment authorized as your insurance will allow. Billing your insurance is also something we do on your behalf, so that you can focus on what matters most – your recovery.

Many insurance plans cover up to 100% of our costs. Call us for a confidential insurance verification, and get started on your road to recovery today.

Financing is Available

We have a number of affordable treatment options available that are designed to make recovery accessible without causing financial strain. In fact, we have a Treatment Pricing Guarantee that promises to match the cost of any comparable treatment center. We also offer special discounts to Veterans, First Responders, former Union workers and their family members, as well as to our Alumni.

Additionally, If you are interested in financing your out-of-pocket expenses, we have partnered with My Treatment Lender to help you access funds for treatment.
