Addiction symptoms vary from person to person and depend on the substance or activity, including mood fluctuations, heightened temper weariness, and an inability to focus or concentrate.

What treatment will be most effective for addiction will vary depending on each patient’s specific needs but generally a combination of behavioral or talk therapy and medication is the most effective option.
In medication-assisted treatment (MAT), the individual is administered medication instead of the substance they were previously abusing. One of the most effective addiction treatment methods is the combination of MAT medication and behavioral therapy. An abstinence-based approach is less effective than treating addiction as a medical condition with medication.
A psychiatrist will conduct an initial consultation with the patient to discuss their concerns, symptoms, and goals prior to the start of MAT. Mental health professionals work with patients to determine the most effective treatment plan to achieve the patient’s goals. Personalized treatment plans must be created for each patient based on their relationship and struggles with substance use disorder.
Patients will receive behavioral therapy and medication as part of their treatment plan. There is evidence that MAT is an effective treatment option that mitigates or eliminates the effects of substance abuse in patients. When compared with approaches relying solely on medication or therapy, MAT can reduce the risk of relapse significantly.
A persistent effort is required to overcome an addiction. Knowing where to find help and learning new coping skills are essential.
Licensed therapists and counselors who specialize in drug and alcohol counseling can help. In addition to addiction, there may be underlying mental health concerns and marriage and family issues that can be addressed with therapy or counseling.
You may be able to mend your relationship and regain your peace of mind by seeing a psychiatrist, psychologist, or licensed counselor.

Typically, addiction is treated with a combination of medication and talk therapy. A medical professional at Invictus4Core will work with each patient to determine what treatment plan will help them recover long-term.
It is common for patients to attend multiple outpatient sessions per week in the beginning of their treatment program. Following intensive treatment, patients switch to regular outpatient treatment to maintain their recovery. The patients meet for fewer hours and fewer times each week after these sessions. There are a number of health concerns associated with addiction, as well as personal and professional problems. It is our goal to help patients take charge of their health through treatment at Invictus4Core.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) can be extremely beneficial for people with substance use disorders. Individuals who are addicted to opioids or alcohol can benefit greatly from MAT. Each patient’s MAT is tailored to his or her specific needs, integrating behavior therapy with medication. Through its patient-centric approach, MAT provides patients with tailored care. In addition to minimizing cravings and decreasing substance and alcohol misuse, MAT can also promote the goal of total recovery by blocking the rewarding sensations associated with certain substances.
A combination of behavioral therapies and FDA-approved pharmaceuticals can provide comprehensive treatment for substance use disorders. Behavioral therapeutic components address psychological, emotional, and behavioral issues, while medication addresses physical symptoms such as cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
