I have so many clients who feel (think) that a taper from Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is impossible, and I’m here to tell you it’s not. 
I have an article over at The Fix. Check it out, and get yourself a dose of hope and success.

I get painfully fascinated with how much goodness is in our daily lives – in the mundane activities – right in front of us every day, but we miss it. And we wonder why our lives feel dull and lifeless. But it doesn’t have to be this way.

Opiate Solutions: A Suboxone Taper

At some point, if you know someone struggling with opiate addiction, you may be faced with great controversy regarding the best approach for opioid treatment. 
I am not an advocate for most medication; especially MAT (medication-assisted treatment). Even though I’ve been working with MAT for nine years, I am still not a fan. 
Actually, I take that back. I will support MAT if it’s used as proper drug “rehabilitation”  but it’s generally not. Much like giving people crutches in physical rehabilitation: some treatments are meant to be temporary. 
We (as an industry) and with the rise of pharmaceutical replacements for opioid withdrawal; have gotten in over our heads – but I do want to offer hope if you or a loved one find themselves choosing MAT as an opiate recovery solution.

Many of us have given up on ourselves. We’ve given up on our ability to manage who we want to be, and how we want to live. Modern life comes with a plethora of distractions. Abandoning the potential of our own lives has become the new normal 😦
