Understanding Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

Medication-Assisted Treatment, or MAT, is considered the gold standard in treating Opioid Use Disorder (OUD). MAT combines medication, counseling, and behavioral therapies to provide a well-rounded approach to treatment.

The Two Options in MAT

Buprenorphine (Examples: Suboxone, Sublocade)

Buprenorphine relieves withdrawal symptoms while also reducing cravings. It can be administered in various office-based settings.

Naltrexone (Example: Vivitrol)

Naltrexone is another office-based treatment option that works by blocking opioid receptors. It is non-addictive and helps patients avoid relapse.

Office-Based Treatment Options: Buprenorphine and Naltrexone


Available forms:

  • Suboxone
  • Sublocade
  • Zubsolv
  • Brixadi


Available forms:

  • Vivitrol
  • Generic tablets

With our Direct Physician Care, Dr. Watson can create a custom treatment plan in our private office for your journey toward recovery and control, using all forms of Buprenorphine and Naltrexone.

Side Note: Vivitrol is an excellent option for those suffering from the dual diagnosis of OUD (Opioid Use Disorder) combined with AUD (Alcohol Use Disorder).
