Is Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) with methadone or buprenorphine trading one addiction for another?
Methadone and buprenorphine are FDA approved, highly studied and regulated medications used to help individuals recover from opioid addiction. Methadone and buprenorphine acts as a stabilizer in the body rather than a narcotic that is used for its euphoric effects. When taken as prescribed, methadone and buprenorphine help patients function physically, emotionally and intellectually without impairment. The medications do not produce mood swings, drowsiness or narcotic effects. Patients on medication-assisted maintenance can drive, go to work, return to their families and lead normal lives. Medication-Assisted Treatment is not an addiction, it is a physical dependence that is required to maintain physical stability. By contrast, painkillers and heroin, destabilize the individual and lead them to many high-risk behaviors that have severe consequences.
