At Lumin Wellness, we utilize Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT), a combination of medications, counseling, and behavioral therapies to provide a patient-focused approach to substance use disorders. The FDA has approved medicine to treat the withdrawal and cravings associated with opioid addiction. We create a treatment plan that includes medication, counseling, and other behavioral interventions to provide patients with a whole-person approach to recovery.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), “taking these medications as prescribed allows patients to hold jobs, avoid street crime and violence, and reduce their exposure to HIV by stopping or decreasing injection drug use and drug-related high-risk sexual behavior. Patients stabilized on these medications can also engage more readily in counseling and other behavioral interventions essential to recovery.”
