Renaissance Recovery and its respective leadership have completed a year of research and development and we’re finally prepared to effectively launch our MAT treatment program.  We offer a range of Southern California addiction treatment programs to provide the support necessary for long-term addiction recovery.

About the Medication Assisted Treatment Program

According to the National Safety Council, the odds of dying from an accidental opioid overdose are greater than those of dying in a car accident. The CDC reports 70,237 drug overdose deaths occurred in the United States in 2017.

The Medication-Assisted Treatment Program in Orange County, CA uses FDA-approved medications in conjunction with other counseling and behavioral therapies. This treatment option is overseen by a medical doctor who has received the additional necessary training to treat substance use disorder with the assistance of conjunctive medication.

The Common Misconception

A common misconception associated with MAT is that it substitutes one drug for another, instead, these medications relieve the withdrawal symptoms and psychological cravings that cause chemical imbalances in the body. This provides stability for the client so that they can begin the necessary clinical work they need in order to achieve long term recovery.

Buprenorphine, approved for use in 2002 by the FDA, represents the latest advance in MAT. Utilization of Buprenorphine in combination with other treatment modalities provide a whole-patient approach to opioid dependency. Buprenorphine is a partial opioid agonist, it satisfies the body’s craving for opiate, therefore, eliminating withdrawals. It does not produce the same level of euphoria. Buprenorphine has a “ceiling effect” which reduces the potential for misuse.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Renaissance Recovery Center provides comprehensive dual diagnosis addiction treatment to treat the underlying mental health conditions contributing to your drug addiction, in addition to the symptoms of your drug addiction. Upon your admission into a mental health treatment center in Orange County, the addiction treatment staff will conduct a mental health assessment to compile a personalized addiction treatment plan that works best for you.
