Much like heart disease or diabetes, addiction is a chronic disease and can be treated and managed.
Research shows that a combination of medication and therapy can successfully treat substance use disorders and prevent or reduce opioid overdose. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) combines behavioral therapy and FDA approved medications (which reduces withdrawal symptoms, cravings, and prevents relapse), and to provide a holistic approach to treating substance use disorders.
National Recovery Month highlights that recovery works, treatment is effective, and people can and do recover.
We know that each recovery journey is unique—there are numerous treatment options and recovery pathways available to those dealing with substance use and/or mental health disorders in San Mateo County.
Congratulations to the Integrated Medication Assisted Team (IMAT), recipients of the 2019 California State Association of Counties Challenge Awards, which recognizes programs that find innovative, creative, effective, and cost-saving ways to provide services to their citizens by California Counties.
