MAT Medication in the Treatment Environment
SOAP November 2019 Meeting: Dr. Michael Stone, MD, FAAFP, ABAM, FSBM
Founder and President, Cornerstone of Southern California
November 20, 2019 at 10:30 a.m.
Cornerstone is a Family-Run Recovery and Treatment Center. Dr. Stone is a legend in the the community of recovery.
Cornerstone believes chemical dependency is a disease that is chronic, progressive, treatable but not curable. It is a disease that can be placed in remission but is also highly prone to relapse.
Why is medication needed during inpatient and outpatient treatment?
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications, in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies, to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment of substance use disorders.
Research shows that a combination of medication and therapy can successfully treat these disorders, and for some people struggling with addiction, MAT can help sustain recovery. Learn about many of the substance use disorders that MAT is designed to address.
