MAT (Medicated Assisted Treatment) Q & A

What MAT services are available?

A medication-assisted outpatient program is designed to help you obtain and maintain sobriety from drugs or alcohol without having to check in for inpatient services.

At Genesis New Beginning, you can undergo MAT medical assessment with a licensed Nurse Practitioner or Medical Doctor only after a thorough medical evaluation to make sure you don’t need closer supervision. For example, if you’ve been a heavy drinker for a number of years, alcohol withdrawal can pose a health risk in the form of seizures, hallucinations and so on.

The MAT program at Genesis New Beginning helps with both the acute symptoms as well as long-term withdrawal side effects. To give you an idea of how long you may suffer withdrawal symptoms, the following are a few examples:

  • Alcohol: Five to seven days
  • Opioids: Four to 10 days

With medical oversight and the right medications, the team at Genesis New Beginning can expertly guide you through your MAT program.

  • Suboxone® for opioid addiction
