CAN MEDICATION ASSISTED TREATMENT HELP WITH ALCOHOL USE?
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), MAT is highly effective in treating alcohol use.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) relies on the use of pharmacological medications to treat substance use disorders. Neurobiological changes that may occur in people in detoxification from substances can increase the risk of relapse. MAT can help prevent relapse and facilitate longer periods of abstinence when used with integrated treatment plans that take other health considerations into account.
FDA approved medications to treat Alcohol Use Disorder are:
- Acamprosate (daily oral dosing)
- Disulfiram (daily oral dosing)
- Naltrexone (daily oral dosing) or Vivitrol (monthly injection)
They do not provide a cure for the disorder, but are most effective in people who participate in a MAT program.
