Medication assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of medications in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies for the treatment of substance use disorders. A combination of medication and behavioral therapies is effective in the treatment of substance use disorders, and can help some people to sustain recovery. However, MAT treatment is a continuation of the use of substances, under the care of a physician, to maintain control over SUD.
After years of such treatment, many clients choose to completely detoxify from such substance use and continue to live completely Sober lives. In those cases, NorthStar can help the client achieve this outcome, through a regimented detoxification and rehabilitation process in an inpatient structured setting, over a period of time.
