PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., Feb. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Chiron Recovery, an evidenced-based dual diagnosis treatment
facility, recently implemented a MAT program for the treatment of opioid addiction. At Chiron Recovery, we believe that relying solely on an abstinence-based program incorrectly insinuates that addiction is a failure of willpower or morals and only further stigmatizes addiction and its treatment. Addiction is a chronic disease and just like other chronic diseases, we are confident that successful treatment exists in a combination of medication merged with the current psychosocial services including therapy and 12 step programs. We strongly believe based on numerous evidence-based studies that Medically Assisted Treatment (MAT) is a necessary component of treatment for our current opioid epidemic. We are not alone in this belief as the federal government and some of the largest public health organizations in the United States
including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), and the World Health Organization (WHO) also support and recommend MAT.
We utilize buprenorphine combined with naloxone due to its accessibility, low risk for misuse, abuse, and overdose, and success rates when compared to traditional treatment or other approved MAT options including methadone and naltrexone.
