Hello my dear sweet friends! Welcome to The Studio today:)
At some point, if you don’t already know someone struggling with opiate addiction, you may be faced with great controversy on the best approach for treatment.
I am not an advocate for most medication; especially MAT (medication-assisted treatment). Even though I’ve been working with MAT for eight years, I am still not a fan.
Actually, I take that back. I will support MAT if it’s used for what it was originally designed for (as a taper): but it’s not.
We (as an industry), and with the rise of pharmaceutics; have all gotten in over our heads – but I do want to offer hope if you or a loved one finds themselves choosing MAT as an opiate solution.
Best to you!
