Medication-Assisted Treatment is not a miracle or a quick fix. It requires compliance and commitment to the program.
However, contrary to some opinions, MAT IS highly effective at helping opioid painkiller addicts kick the habit fast. Some say MAT is substituting one drug for another. This is simply not true.
When prescribed by a certified physician like Dr. Jahan Chaudhry of Holbrook, Long Island, Medication-Assisted Treatment is extremely effective. It’s as effective, in fact, as taking medication for any other illness including diabetes or heart disease.
Addiction is absolutely a disease; it’s a TREATABLE disease.
Unfortunately, addiction involves the brain as well as other parts of the body. It’s more difficult to get the brain to stop relying on opioids — that’s a fact of addictive substances.
However, the FDA approved medications, including Suboxone, prescribed as part of MAT — at the Long Island Compassionate Medical Center — are very effective in reducing the brain’s reliance on opioids.
In only a few days, Dr. Chaudhry can help people who are addicted to opioid painkillers feel better and get on a real path to recovery.
