Safe and Supervised: Suboxone is administered under medical supervision to ensure safety and effectiveness.
Long-Lasting Relief: A single daily dose of Suboxone provides continuous relief, allowing individuals to focus on their recovery without constant medication adjustments.

Medication Selection

Naltrexone: Blocks the effects of opioids and alcohol, helping individuals maintain sobriety.
Vivitrol: An extended-release form of naltrexone that requires monthly injections.

Suboxone is a medication used in MAT to manage opioid dependence. It contains buprenorphine and naloxone, which work together to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Buprenorphine activates opioid receptors without causing a high, while naloxone helps prevent misuse.

MAT is suitable for individuals struggling with opioid or alcohol dependence. Our expert team assesses each case individually to determine the most appropriate treatment plan, taking into account the type and severity of addiction.

The duration of MAT treatment varies from person to person. It can range from several months to several years, depending on your progress and goals. The goal is to support lasting recovery and reduce the risk of relapse.

MAT medications may have side effects, which our medical team discusses with you before starting treatment. Common side effects may include nausea, constipation, or drowsiness. These side effects are closely monitored and managed to ensure your comfort and safety.
