What Is MAT?
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is an evidence-based, research-supported type of care for people who have become addicted to opioids and certain other substances. The two main components of MAT are prescription medication and counseling.
Adults who receive MAT at Sunrise Recovery Ranch complete a thorough assessment and consult with a medical professional who can prescribe the most appropriate medication. Medication options at our center may include Suboxone (which is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone) and Vivitrol (which contains naltrexone).
The medications that are incorporated into MAT interact with the parts of the central nervous system that are affected by opioids and certain other substances. When a person takes one of these medications as directed, they may end their substance use without experiencing the painful withdrawal symptoms that would otherwise occur.
The counseling component of MAT at Sunrise Recovery Ranch helps adults identify things that may have contributed to their substance use and develop the strategies that can empower them to achieve and maintain long-term recovery. During counseling sessions, adults can learn more about addiction and recovery, express their thoughts, practice new skills, and share support with other adults who are working toward a similar goal.
What Is the MAT Access Points Project?
The MAT Access Points Project is part of a statewide effort in California to combat the opioid epidemic by promoting greater understanding, reducing stigma, and expanding opportunities for people from lower-income brackets and other marginalized populations to get the care they need.
This project is funded through the Department of Health Care Services California MAT Expansion Project and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). It is administered by The Center at Sierra Health Foundation.
The MAT Access Points Project has awarded more than $25 million to community-based organizations, treatment providers, and tribal health organizations in California.
