New Maryland doctor-led program fighting opioid crisis with medication and tech

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 

 

The opiate addiction epidemic reaches all new highs in Baltimore, Maryland. New suboxone clinics are needed to help combat this life-threatening probsuboxone clinic in baltimore mdlem.

BALTIMORE – Feb. 17, 2018 – PRLog — Maryland Medication Assisted Treatment and Technology (MD MATT) opens Feb. 15 to treat addiction to opioids with a breakthrough combination of medication and technology. Medication Assisted Treatment uses medications (e.g. suboxone, zubsolv, vivitrol, buprenorphine) in combination with counseling disciplines to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment. Research shows the combination of medication with therapy sustains recovery.

More than 2.5 million Americans suffer from an opioid use disorder. This contributed to more than 28,000 overdose deaths last year according the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA).  NIDA finds MAT effective in decreasing opioid use, opioid-related overdose deaths, and criminal activity. In Baltimore alone, once prescription buprenorphine became available a decade and a half ago, heroin deaths decrease by more than a third. (See the American Journal of Public Health, May 2013)

 

The challenge in True Recovery, according to Matthew Steiner. CEO Addicted Minds, is to sustain recovery, not just get a person abstinent. Patients treated with medication were more likely to remain in therapy compared to patients receiving treatment that did not include medication. “Changing our habits is hard work. However, change is made easier when you’re armed with facts, a scheduled program, and have a clear purpose for your health, relationships, and career.”

MD MATT offers same-day and scheduled appointments. Appointments are made at (443) 559-4137 or online through suboxoneclinicbaltimore.comText 741-741 for the Crisis Text Line serving anyone, in any type of crisis, providing access to free, 24/7 support.
