Medication Assisted Treatments
Intensive Treatment Systems provides medication assisted treatment (MAT) for individuals with opioid use disorder. MAT, combined with counseling, peer support and behavioral therapy creates a holistic, individual approach to treat the “whole-patient”. This FDA-Approved medication helps to alleviate withdrawal and cravings, allowing the patient to focus on positive behavior changes.
Naloxone (Narcan) Is a life-saving measure that is given to a person that is opioid overdose. Once Naloxone is administered to a person experiencing an opiate overdose it blocks the opiate receptors, reversing the toxic effects of overdose. Naloxone will work for 30-60 minutes reversing the depression of the central nervous system and respiratory system, allowing an overdose victim to breathe normally. This gives the person experiencing overdose time to receive medical attention.
