Addiction is a powerful brain disease. For many, the physical symptoms of withdrawal become to painful to bear, and so they end up relapsing. For them, no amount of willpower will be able to give them the ability to stop permanently. And the reason is because prolonged substance abuse causes changes in brain chemistry.
For some, then, additional support is necessary and finding the right addiction treatment is crucial in ensuring long-term success. MAT does that by bringing the benefits of time and healing into treatment, allowing every person the ability to recover and reach sobriety at a pace that works for them.
