To curb the mortality rates due to drug overdoses, the American Medical Association (AMA) recommended an innovative approach called Medication-Assisted Therapy or MAT. Medication-Assisted Therapy for addiction uses FDA-approved medicines and behavioral therapies to help patients cleanse their bodies from toxic drugs and normalize their body functions. With the support of certified and expert medical therapy assistants, patients will find the right path to recovery. Individual and group Medication-Assisted Therapy sessions are made available to address their drug dependency issues holistically.
