Effective MAT offers more than medication to patients because experts agree that addiction’s psychological and emotional aspects need to be addressed for patients to reach long-lasting, impactful recovery. AppleGate Recovery offices offer individual and group substance use counseling sessions either on-site or through referral. Patients are highly encouraged to regularly attend counseling sessions to understand their opioid addiction experience better while also planning and setting goals for recovery. Counseling sessions also prepare patients to rebuild and repair relationships and aspects of their lives that were negatively impacted by addiction, which can be a vital stepping stone towards long-term positive changes for those dedicated to recovery.
