MAT Addiction Treatment in Jackson

When you are living with an active drug and alcohol addiction, it is easy to feel as though you are alone in your battle with substance abuse. While you know that you want to overcome your drug or alcohol addiction, it can be challenging to see a way out when you are in the depths of your addiction. At Serenity Oaks, we pride ourselves in supporting patients to find hope that there are options to finally kick your drug and alcohol addiction for good. Through our personalized approach to addiction treatment, you will be provided with addiction therapy methods that are centered around healing from your personal history with addiction as we know that each person that is facing a drug or alcohol addiction has their own unique set of causes that have led to your drug or alcohol dependence. Substance abuse often stems from a history of trauma or emotional turmoil that has influenced how you are able to respond to negative emotions or situations leading you to turning to substance abuse as a way to cope with unpleasant emotions, thoughts, and memories. Through addiction treatment, you will learn how to process your past emotions and traumas while learning new coping skills and methods for relapse prevention that will help you live a successful life in addiction treatment.

Serenity Oaks changed my life. I went in a terrified shell of a person. I left born again, a new man entirely. The team of therapist is amazing, they saved my life.

The therapists here are top notch! The staff is excellent as well. The individual therapy sessions and the group sessions are equally valuable. If you’re open-minded and willing, this place can change your life! I cannot thank this place enough for giving me my life back. I was completely lost, empty, full of darkness and self-hatred. Today, I can say that I am the complete opposite of all of those things! I owe it all to Serenity Oaks Wellness Center and the hard work that I did there and the lessons and tools I learned and continue to practice in my daily life now.

At Serenity Oaks, our vision is to ADORN our patients to help facilitate personal growth and change towards a healthy balanced life in sobriety. Your addiction treatment program will incorporate clinical therapeutic support, medical supervision and care, and recreational or experiential therapy opportunities. 

In order to support our patients in ADORNing from their addiction, we believe that this is completed in 5 stages;

A- Accountability

During the initial stage of your addiction treatment program, patients will become accountable to their actions and consequences of addiction that has impacted their life or others around them .

D- Dreams, determination, disconnect, or direction

This second stage of addiction treatment is characterized by identifying the harmful habits that have been established during your addiction and beginning to identify how you would want to make changes for the future in sober living.

O- Opportunity

Patients are beginning to build and develop positive, healthy coping strategies while also receiving feedback from peers and staff about their recovery process to ensure that they are receiving optimal treatment progress.

R- Relationships and Restoring

During this fourth phase of addiction treatment, patients will engage in family therapy sessions to help reconnect with their loved ones and rebuild trust within the relationship. Loved ones will develop skills for healthy communication, setting appropriate boundaries with one another, and holding each other accountable.

N- Navigate

This final phase of addiction treatment is characterized by supporting patients to navigate sober living options and the supports that will be needed as you transition into your home environment. Patients are paired with new clients to support as a mentor and support the new person in going through their treatment to help share their experience and knowledge of addiction recovery.

What is MAT?

Your addiction is unique to you and depending on the severity of your drug addiction or alcohol addiction, the physical dependency that has been developed may cause significant side effects and withdrawal symptoms for some. This often can become a deterrent for individuals that are wanting to quit their substance abuse as the thought of experiencing severe, uncomfortable symptoms can cause hesitation in some to go through with quitting their use of drugs and alcohol. There is a solution for these specific circumstances that will support you in safely overcoming your drug or alcohol addiction through a medically assisted treatment (MAT) program. A MAT program provides patients with an opportunity to have medication and medical support throughout your drug or alcohol detox and treatment along with specific addiction therapy methods. Patients will be invited to participate in a whole person integrated approach to healing that utilizes behavioral therapy, dual diagnosis treatment, medically assisted treatment, and holistic therapy methods that will help you heal from your drug or alcohol addiction physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

A medically assisted treatment (MAT) program is a method of addiction treatment that will support Jacksonville residents who are experiencing a severe addiction to opioids or alcohol and are ready to take the steps to overcome their addiction. Engaging in alcohol or opioid abuse can lead to a significant physical dependence within the user as these substances are highly addictive. When a person attempts to quit these substances, it can cause severe withdrawal symptoms and create intense alcohol,or drug cravings that can often be a leading factor for a person to return to a life of substance abuse. A MAT program will provide patients with specific medications that will work within your body and brain to decrease the potential of severe withdrawal symptoms and bring them down to a mild or moderate level making it bearable for a person to continue with their alcohol or drug detox program. Medications also help to target your brain chemistry to help alleviate the severity of cravings for drugs and alcohol allowing you to remain focused on your addiction treatment programs and ultimate goal of achieving a life of sober living. 

 A MAT program will often begin when a person is first entering the detox phase of their addiction recovery program. However, we recognize that there are times you are unable to attend a detox program first and we want to provide an option for those individuals to begin a MAT program while you await getting into an alcohol or drug detox program. Jacksonville residents are invited to participate in a MAT program while residing at home through an outpatient rehab format. Once you are able to attend a detox program or enter into an addiction treatment program of inpatient rehab or outpatient rehab, you will be able to continue with a MAT program until you are feeling stable in your addiction recovery and have overcome the severe physical dependence to drugs and alcohol. As you are becoming stronger in your recovery, you will be able to taper off medications with the ongoing supervision of medical professionals within our team at Serenity Oaks.

What To Expect During MAT?

Before starting your MAT program, you will first need to meet with our in-house medical team who will complete an intake questionnaire and medical assessments to gain an understanding of the severity of your drug and alcohol addiction. This will help us determine the levels of care that you will require to successfully overcome your drug and alcohol addiction. If our medical team deems it to be a fit for you to participate in a MAT program, you will be invited to begin right away. Participation in a MAT program is voluntary and, should you agree to participate, you will be provided with one of the following medications: 

  • Buprenorphine (also known as suboxone) 
  • Methadone 
  • Naltrexone 

 Throughout your MAT program, you will be provided with medications as well as specific addiction therapy methods that will target healing from the underlying causes of your addiction.Addiction therapy methods for treating substance use disorders that are offered to Jacksonville residents within Serenity Oaks wellness centers are:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy 
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy 
  • Dual Diagnosis Treatment 
  • Holistic and alternative therapy methods 
  • Trauma therapy sessions 
  • Relapse prevention  tools 
  • Life skills development
