What is MAT Primarily Used For?
MAT is mainly used for treating addiction to opiates such as heroin and prescription opiates. The medication prescribed by our suboxone doctor operates to normalize brain chemistry, it controls withdrawal symptoms and alleviates cravings. The goal of MAT is to stop someone from using harder, more dangerous drugs and to gradually taper the dosage down until the person can become totally clean.
