Medication Assisted Recovery
This session will focus on a behind the scenes look at the recovery experience for someone who chooses a pathway supported by Buprenorphine and Methadone. We will examine theory versus practice and challenge providers to live out multiple pathway philosophies. Too often we see people verbally and intellectually ascend to support M.A.T. then actively marginalize those on M.A.T. We will encourage intellectual honesty and self reflection. Like any other issue, providers need to “know their own stuff”. We will also discuss the reality of the typical recovery group experience for someone taking the Medication Assisted pathway.
