Wherever you are in your recovery, whether today is Day 1 or your next attempt at kicking your opioid painkiller addiction, please know that the Long Island Compassionate Medical Center in Holbrook is dedicated to making this your last first day of treatment.
What is Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT?)
When you are addicted to opioids, your brain and body are not working properly.
Your body actually needs the drugs to function at all. The medications used in MAT for opioid dependency are extremely effective in normalizing brain and body functions and blocks the body’s “need” for the drugs. The U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved some medications for use in helping people addicted to prescription painkillers and heroin get clean.
MAT offers a whole-body approach to opioid dependence treatment. Suboxone eliminates cravings for your drug of choice as well as withdrawal symptoms typically associated with detox, you can break free of your drug habit once and for all.
If you are looking for a way out, a way to get clean and sober and regain your life — your relationships, financial security and hope for a bright future — we invite you to explore Medication-Assisted Treatment at the Long Island Compassionate Medical Center.
What is Suboxone?
Suboxone is a prescription medication that combines buprenorphine and naloxone. It is administered by placing a film strip (think breath strip!) under the tongue. It can successfully treat opioid painkiller addiction and manage withdrawal systems as you kick your habit.
Does MAT Work?
MAT is a clinically proven way to kick opioids to the curb forever.
MAT is a whole-patient approach to getting clean. It’s a clinically proven method that isn’t being prescribed nearly enough — considering the opioid epidemic. Physicians must undergo considerable training to be approved to prescribe the medications used in Medication-Assisted Treatment.
Dr. Chaudhry has completed considerable training and has years of experience helping patients successfully get clean.
Studies conducted in 2013 reveal astounding statistics: about 1.8 million people were addicted to pain relievers and half a million people were suffering from opioid addiction related directly to use of heroin. Those same studies prove that the type of treatment provided at the Long Island Compassionate Medical Center works.
“MAT has proved to be clinically effective and to significantly reduce the need for inpatient detoxification services for these individuals,” according to SAMHSA, the US Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
Why Should I Choose the Long Island Compassionate Medical Center for Treatment?
Since MAT is personalized for each particular person, it is critically important that only the most highly qualified and trained physicians are permitted to oversee MAT and prescribe these medications.
Dr. Jahan Chaudhry, MD, is one of a handful of New York physicians approved to treat opioid addiction with MAT — a combination of FDA-approved medications like Suboxone, counseling and behavioral modification treatment. His Holbrook, Long Island, center is warm and inviting and private.
You don’t have to visit a crowded, public clinic to get the help you need from a Long Island suboxone doctor. Dr. Chaudhry is a family physician; he and his staff are warm and supportive.
