What is medication-assisted treatment, or MAT? A medication-assisted treatment program is an addiction treatment program that uses medicine, along with behavioral therapy, to treat addiction. The combination of medication and behavioral therapy is an effective model for overcoming addiction and helps with managing cravings. An MAT program reduces the impacts of withdrawal symptoms, thereby minimizing the effects of opioid withdrawal. Some of these medicines can also counteract overdoses, which has saved many lives. At Colorado Medication Assisted Recovery, we are committed to long-term sobriety.

One medication used at CMAR to treat opioid addiction is buprenorphine. Buprenorphine is an opioid with agonist and antagonist properties. Buprenorphine is an FDA approved medication for the treatment of opioid use disorder. Unlike other opioids, buprenorphine is safe to take for extended periods of time. Research has proven that buprenorphine is an effective medication in the treatment of opioid dependency. It has shown to improve recovery rates, treatment outcomes, treatment retention, as well as reduce the chances an individual experiences an overdose or infectious disease related to substance use.
Your addiction treatment specialist may recommend that you take this medicine alone or in combination with naloxone. In either case, buprenorphine can relieve the opioid withdrawal symptoms that appear when someone stops using opioids.
Suboxone is another medicine used at CMAR’s medication-assisted treatment program in Colorado. Suboxone is a brand name drug that is mostly compounded of buprenorphine. The naloxone in Suboxone is inactive when taken orally. It is active when snorted or injected, and then cancels the effects of the buprenorphine. Naloxone is in Suboxone to prevent the medication from being abused. Therefore, Suboxone is an effective medication in treating opioid addiction at our addiction treatment center.
Lucemyra is a relatively new medication being used as an “assistive” medication in care that involves medication-assisted treatment. It is a non-opioid medication that a doctor or other medical professional prescribes to help patients through their initial days in recovery. Lucemyra lessens a patient’s symptoms of opioid withdrawal but does not prevent them completely. Lucyemyra is particularly helpful during induction, in that it often enables a patient to achieve maximum comfort and avoid the triggers inherent to the feelings patients sometimes have during induction.
Even though Lucemyra doesn’t prevent all of the effects of opioid withdrawal, there are significant advantages. For instance, because this medication is a non-opioid, there is no chance of becoming dependent on the medication. Furthermore, Lucemyra can help you feel comfortable when transitioning onto Suboxone.
