How Can MAT Help Treat Addictions?
Both Suboxone and Naltrexone can help you manage the painful symptoms of withdrawal that come from quitting opioids, and when combined with a comprehensive treatment program, the underlying reasons for opioid use can be dealt with, along with finding new ways to manage physical pain and cope with stress. Without feeling cravings for opioids, individuals can get back to life as “normal”, focusing on reforming healthy relationships and pursuing a healthy lifestyle.
Here’s a helpful link to American Addiction Centers website with consumer information on being prescribed Suboxone for treating Opioid Use Disorder (OUD). It is approved by the FDA and is a controlled substance. A Suboxone equivalent is available as an orally disintegrating tablet (ODT) and is generic. Like Suboxone, it is taken sublingually, under the tongue. MWI Health has providers who prescribe Suboxone or ODT tablets which have the same two medications, buprenorphine and naloxone, in the same strengths.
Naltrexone is a pure opiate antagonist, which means it blocks the effects of opiates and opioids. It is approved by the FDA for treating OUD and Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) and has other off-label uses. It can be administered in two ways, daily by taking a tablet orally or monthly by receiving a long-acting form of it as an intramuscular (IM) injection. Here is a helpful link to SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) website that directs you to information on naltrexone and has other useful links. You can find information on buprenorphine, the active ingredient in Suboxone, on the same website page as naltrexone.
