Relapse is a serious risk for those in early sobriety, and anything you can do to mitigate this risk should be strongly considered. One such proactive step is agreeing to a medically assisted treatment program which includes regular doses of Suboxone. This medication has proven highly effective when it comes to the elimination of cravings for those in early recovery with minimal negative side effects. If you have struggled with an opiate or alcohol addiction for a significant length of time and are now attempting sobriety, a MAT program incorporating Suboxone is something you should consider.
Suboxone is a combination of a partial opiate receptor agonist with a an opiate blocker. These two substances work together to both eliminate the neurochemical cause of cravings while also blocking the effects of any opiates you may ingest in an attempt to get high. This two-pronged effect strongly discourages patients from entertaining thoughts of substance abuse since cravings, if they occur at all, are minimal and fleeting, and the drive to act upon them is diminished by the knowledge any attempt to use will be fruitless.
Enrollment in a MAT program provides access to continued treatment and therapy after you’ve completed a residential inpatient treatment program. While inpatient treatment offers you the chance to process any traumatic experiences or psychological issues with the help of medical professionals, the time constraints of residential treatment means there may be additional issues which were left unaddressed. At Evolutions, our medically-assisted treatment program provides continued access to your counselors and group therapy sessions for six months or longer depending on your progress in sobriety. This could make all the difference in your recovery success, especially if this is not your first time attempting sobriety.
Your sobriety is a precious gift, one you should protect at all costs. One step you can take to ensure your success in recovery is enrolling in a MAT program. This is especially true if this is not your first attempt at sobriety, as you have already experienced the setback of a relapse and should seek any additional support to avoid a similar outcome this time around. At Evolutions Treatment Center, our MAT program is rooted in our holistic philosophy when it comes to substance abuse treatment, and enrollment will provide you access to a plethora of tools and resources all geared towards helping you achieve long-term sobriety. If you are in early recovery but are worried about your risk of relapse, call our Admissions Counselors today at 833-818-3031 and inquire about enrolling in our MAT program.
