MAT Coming Soon To New U Therapy Center & Family Services

Are you or someone you care about dealing with the complexities of opioid addiction?


At New U Therapy Center & Family Services, we’re excited to announce our new, comprehensive Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) program for opioid addiction. MAT combines medication with counseling to provide comprehensive support for individuals struggling with opioid addiction. One key medication we use is Suboxone, which contains buprenorphine and naloxone.


Here’s how MAT works..


Buprenorphine: This medication works by binding to the same receptors in the brain as opioids, thereby reducing cravings and withdrawal symptoms without producing the same intense high. By partially activating brain receptors, it stabilizes brain chemistry, enabling normal functioning and lowering overdose risk.


Naloxone: Naloxone serves as an opioid antagonist. That means it blocks the effects of opioids and can reverse an overdose if administered promptly. It is included to prevent misuse. Naloxone blocks the effects of opioids. If someone tries to misuse Suboxone by injecting it, naloxone triggers withdrawal symptoms, discouraging misuse.


Our MAT programs offer support for both the physical and psychological aspects of addiction. With Suboxone as a key component, we aim to provide patients with a path to lasting recovery and a better quality of life. Please note: The MAT program is only available to current IOP clients at New U Therapy Center & Family Services. 



If you know of someone who could benefit from our MAT programs or if you’d like more information, please reach out.
