Medication Assisted Treatment
Recovery programs where medications are combined with behavioral therapy to help with recovery from drug dependence are known as Medication Assisted Treatment abbreviated as MAT. This is applicable for Opioid Treatment Programs (OTP) as well.
“Treatment for drug dependency is being offered by making use of the whole patient approach.Treatment is offered based on the four major perspectives like the disease perspective, behavior perspective, dimensional perspective, and life story perspective. Considering all these perspectives, comprehensive series of steps are being used in a sequential manner to customize a treatment path to suit the unique recovery requirements of individual patients.”
