Maryland Medication Assisted Treatment and Technology or MD MATT is Baltimore’s Suboxone Clinic with a dedicated team of addiction professionals that treat patients addiction to opioids with medication and a scientific approach. MD MATT uses technology in unprecedented ways to support our patient’s mental health and make their lives easier during recovery.
Technology has incredible power to help with recovery; it connects us, makes our lives easier, and is a lifeline in our time of need. It can also help facilitate lifestyle changes through reminders and progress tracking. Changing our habits is challenging. However, change is made easier when you’re armed with facts, a scheduled program, and have a clear purpose (health, relationships, career) for your progress.
At MD MATT, technology is used to support the patients during their time in recovery. Purpose and Community is what helps people progress and move forward. Technology can help facilitate change, but it won’t lead to long term recovery. For that to happen, the patient first needs to have a strong grasp of their purpose (short and long term goals).
Science, Support, and Community are the keys to fighting opioid addiction. The science is medicine and technology, in most cases Suboxone and Smartphones.
The support is in the passion that our staff exudes, but also in the way we utilize the powers of technology in ways that no other practice does. In the end, community is the true engine of recovery.
True Recovery involves having the life skills to pursue your own purpose and build your own community while leading a healthy, fulfilling life. That is our ultimate goal at MD MATT, true recovery. We hope to help you find it.
At MD. M.A.T.T. we provide medication assisted treatment aided by technology.
Medication-Assisted Treatment (M.A.T.) is the use of medications (ex: suboxone/zubsolv/vivitrol/buprenorphine), in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies to provide a “whole-patient” approach to the treatment. Research shows that a combination of medication and therapy can successfully treat and help sustain recovery.
M.A.T. is primarily used for the treatment of addiction to opioids such as heroin and prescription pain relievers that contain opiates. The prescribed medication operates to normalize brain chemistry, block the euphoric effects of alcohol and opioids, relieve physiological cravings, and normalize body functions without the negative effects of the abused drug.
Buprenorphine (Suboxone, Zubsolv, Bunavail, Subutex) works miracles but its full potential is not reached until counseling, community, and purpose is taken seriously by the patient.
Technology has incredible power to help with recovery; it connects us, makes our lives easier, and is a lifeline in our time of need. We cater to the smartphone era and every service you can imagine is available from any device. Support such as 24/7 counseling and text services, health track via apps, no waiting in the office, quick support in your time of need…
Community and Purpose. These principles are the basis to long term recovery. Community is the relationships around us. Our social network of friends and family is their source of support, love, and hope. Purpose is what a person does. It is activities during the day, their work, school, or other endeavors such as pursuing a career.
Through Recovery Work, you will find PURPOSE! By participating in recovery work, you will learn to build COMMUNITY and have a stable foundation for RECOVERY!
