Medication Assisted Addiction Treatment
Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) for Addiction:
Addiction is a complex brain disease with intertwined genetic, behavioral, and social dimensions. Like most multifaceted diseases, it also requires a comprehensive approach. Here at Interpersonal Psychiatry, we address each of these complex dimensions exclusively through personalized interventions. Our addiction treatment options are evidence-based, flexible, and catered to the needs of each individual patient. All patients enrolled in the Medication Assisted Program will be required to attend a minimum of either two group therapy sessions or one individual therapy session per month.
Our initial focus is centered on biological and functional assessment. This includes sleep, depression, anxiety, and pain assessments, as well as medication management and genetic testing. Some patients may require the assistance of the Intensive Outpatient program (IOP), while others may necessitate more individualized, one-on-one therapy.
Our next focus is on restoration of functions, in which we address occupational, social and personal relationship functions.
Medication Assisted Management (MAT) for Opioid Addiction
Opioid dependence is a chronic medical condition that requires long-term treatment. Since opioid addiction carries a wide range of health risks, these factors make it extremely important to seek help as soon as possible in order to prevent further harm to the patient. Although opioid dependence is a challenging condition, it is one that can be treated. We efficiently treat our addiction patients with an effective variety of medications, including Suboxone®, Zubsolve®, and Bunavail®.
We also offer the Probuphine® Implant for opiate addiction.
