MEDICATION-ASSISTED TREATMENT (MAT) PROGRAM IN FORT LAUDERDALE
MAT ADDICTION TREATMENT IN FORT LAUDERDALE
When trying to stop a severe addiction, there can sometimes be persistent effects that linger long after the detox is complete. Triggers can make it very difficult to maintain one's sobriety as the person may face a lack of balance in their brain, which affects their well-being and ability to prevent relapse. For others, stopping an opioid or alcohol addiction has not been successful in the past, and they fear they may never be able to stop properly.
At Recovery Unplugged, we offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to help in such cases, allowing for long-term abstinence even when there are persistent effects from long-term substance abuse or difficulty maintaining sobriety. At our addiction treatment center in Fort Lauderdale, we offer medication-assisted treatment alongside the best-known methods of treating the causes of addiction through behavioral therapy and holistic treatments.
Let Recovery Unplugged help you to overcome your opioid use disorder or alcohol use disorder through medication-assisted treatment offered in an outpatient setting in Fort Lauderdale, FL. We provide life-saving treatment and the support you need in a nurturing, comfortable environment where your healing and significant positive changes can occur.

WHAT IS MAT?
MAT or medication-assisted treatment is a unique long-term treatment plan for opioid use disorder and can also be successful for alcohol use disorder. It essentially uses medication approved by the FDA to prevent relapse, normalize brain function, and improve the results of behavioral therapy and other types of addiction treatment programs.
The MAT program at Recovery Unplugged can help you overcome even the most severe addiction to a substance such as fentanyl, heroin, prescription opioids, and alcohol. It is especially effective at helping someone suffering from persistent withdrawal symptoms to feel more normal again where long-term damage has been caused.
Opioid use disorder, for example, can lead to long-term damage to the brain's reward centers. MAT can help restore healthy brain function that has been impeded by long-term substance abuse. It would otherwise lead to a situation where a person may not feel pleasure or a sense of reward because their reward system has been damaged.
Moreover, MAT can help save a person's life because when a person relapses in opioid use disorder, it's very easy to take too much and therefore risk overdose – especially with potent opioids such as fentanyl being laced in more and more drugs. Some medications can block the effects of high doses of opioids and thereby help prevent drug overdose.
The medications given in MAT must be accompanied by behavioral therapy. With brain function restored, the positive effects of behavioral treatment such as cognitive-behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy can be experienced. Therefore, MAT is an integral part of a person's sustained recovery because it makes the treatments for the real addiction causes more effective.
A common misconception about MAT programs is that it's just replacing one drug for another, but MAT programs are the only way that some people can achieve lasting recovery. Without them, many people may not be able to recover from their addiction fully. The ultimate goal you will be working toward in our MAT program in Fort Lauderdale is no longer needing any medications to maintain sobriety. This is because behavioral therapy, holistic treatments, and aftercare services have helped embrace a new way of life. MAT gives people a chance at a real, long-term recovery from alcohol and opioid abuse.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING MAT?
At Recovery Unplugged in Fort Lauderdale, you can access our Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP) and intensive outpatient program (IOP). In our PHP, you'll take part in behavioral therapy and holistic treatments for several hours a day, while in our IOP, you'll have more autonomy allowing you to take care of responsibilities such as work still. Combining the two treatment programs can offer a better continuum of care. We also provide inpatient rehab programs at our other rehab locations.
As an authorized provider of the medications used in MAT, you can expect to receive medications such as Vivitrol, Suboxone, and Sublocade. Depending on the medication, you'll take these medications under professional supervision and may receive them as a pill, injection, or implant. The medications are generally extended-release formulas allowing the positive effects to work while preventing abuse.
You will undergo behavioral therapy that will be the driving force of your sustained recovery as it aims to help you heal from the underlying causes of your addiction. Behavioral therapy such as cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy will be used in conjunction with the medications you receive.
You will also participate in our unique and powerful Music Assisted Treatment, which is a holistic way to help improve your receptivity to therapy, improve your mood, help connect you with yourself and others, and a host of other benefits. You don't need to know how to play an instrument to participate in our Music Assisted Treatment – it's a program that everyone can benefit from and enjoy as part of a whole-patient treatment approach.

Dual diagnosis is a treatment we offer at our Fort Lauderdale rehab, which essentially seeks and treats co-occurring mental health disorders that are present along with addiction. It is a common cause of addiction because people seek relief from their untreated mental health disorders through drugs and alcohol abuse, giving them short-term relief but eventually adding to their problems. Our dual diagnosis treatment program will effectively treat any co-occurring mental health disorder while receiving treatment directly for your substance addiction.
Whether you are worried that you won't be able to sustain your recovery from opioid or alcohol addiction or have relapsed after receiving standard treatment, our MAT program can be the key to your long-term addiction recovery success.
