Medication-Assisted Treatment in Cincinnati

Admitting your alcohol or drug addiction is a problem is an important first step towards recovery, but it’s also crucial that you seek professional help. Many people struggling with addiction assume they can quit using drugs completely and heal in a matter of days or weeks, but withdrawal can be uncomfortable, long, and even dangerous. If you wish to heal, you must seek a rehab center with certified medical professionals who can monitor your symptoms and give you medication as needed. Through a combination of medication and various therapies, our team strives to meet our clients where they’re at and give them a say in how they recover. Reach out to us today to learn about our facility and the various substance use disorders we can address.

What is Medication-Assisted Treatment?

What Exactly Is


Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) involves the use of medications, as well as behavioral therapies, to treat people suffering from substance use disorder. With the ultimate goal of recovery, MAT can decrease the risk of overdose. Though MAT can be applied to a variety of addictions, it’s primarily used to treat addiction to opioids, including heroin and other pain relievers that contain opiates.

The medications administered are all approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and have been shown to:

Increase retention in treatment programs Improve client survival
Increase ability to gain and maintain employment
Decrease opiate use and other criminal activity

By reducing the possibility of a relapse, MAT can also decrease a person’s risk of contracting HIV and hepatitis C, which many people with heroin addictions can contract through using unsterilized needles.

Understand What You Need

MAT Medications

FDA-approved MAT medications, when applied to opioid addictions, work to block the euphoric effects that opioids produce, as well as relieve drug cravings and balance out bodily functions. The medications are all evidence-based and, despite what some rumors suggest, MAT does not involve substituting one drug for another.

Common MAT medications include:

  • Alcohol use disorder medications: Alcoholism can be treated with acamprosate, disulfiram, and naltrexone. Disulfiram, for example, helps clients gradually decrease alcohol use by creating unpleasant side effects when they drink, such as nausea, headaches, and chest pains. Naltrexone blocks the euphoria a person feels when they’re intoxicated and is also used to treat opioid addiction.
  • Opioid dependency medications: Short-acting opioid addictions, such as heroin, codeine, and morphine, as well as semi-synthetic opioid addictions like hydrocodone and oxycodone can be treated with buprenorphine, and naltrexone. These medications can be used over time and last for years.
  • Opioid overdose prevention medication: Individuals who have experienced overdose can be treated with naloxone. Naloxone works as an opioid antagonist by reversing the effects of opioids, but is a temporary treatment that is usually used in emergency situations.
