Drug Treatment Options are made on a case by case basis, centering each person’s self-determination to find health-affirming and quality care. Trystereo’s regional resource guides are uniquely well-researched and developed and include information on drug treatment centers and other healthcare providers and facilities that are most likely to treat people who use drugs with respect and without discrimination. Our Suboxone provider guide is the most comprehensive and accurate resource of its kind in the Greater New Orleans Area.
Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
There are three drugs approved by the FDA for the treatment of opioid dependence: buprenorphine, methadone, and naltrexone. All three of these treatments have been demonstrated to be safe and effective in combination with counseling and psychosocial support.
MAT Decreases opioid use, opioid-related overdose deaths, criminal activity, and infectious disease transmission. After buprenorphine became available in Baltimore, heroin overdose deaths decreased by 37 percent during the study period, which ended in 2009.
MAT Increases social functioning and retention in treatment. Patients treated with medication were more likely to remain in therapy compared to patients receiving treatment that did not include medication.
Treatment of opioid-dependent pregnant women with methadone or buprenorphine Improves Outcomes for their babies; MAT reduces symptoms of neonatal abstinence syndrome and length of hospital stay.
