Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)

One of the most unique things about BRIGHTSIDE Recovery programs is that you have the option to use medication-assisted treatment (MAT). At BRIGHTSIDE Recovery, we provide unprecedented access for patients at every step of the way. We are one of the only treatment facilities in Illinois that can get you into treatment within the same day. With our multiple, convenient locations and Telehealth solutions, we are where you are. When you start treatment, you will have direct access to your doctor, therapist, staff and peers to help with your path to sobriety.

Through our medical business, BRIGHTSIDE Clinic, we can also offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT) to help mitigate the discomfort of withdrawal and cravings to minimize any potential health risks with stopping alcohol or opioid substance abuse. We will not force you to do MAT with your program but we will present it to you as an option to your program. With some dependencies, it may be beneficial to add MAT to your treatment program. MAT may minimize the potential of seizures that occur with stopping some substance abuses.

Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) 

  • We are one of the only programs in the U.S. with both a fully functional medication assisted treatment (MAT) and therapy program. 
  • MAT can be used to assist with eliminating the use of alcohol or opiates while starting and after your addiction treatment. 
  • We use Naltrexone (also known as Vivitrol) for alcohol use disorder treatment and Suboxone for opioid addiction treatment such as heroin.

Our medical business, BRIGHTSIDE Clinic, has over 6 years of experience and has treated over 2,000 people with MAT.
