3 Most Addictive Substances which Need MAT Program

Aug 19, 2022 | Rehab

As experts from Taylor Recovery, we understand what a patient goes through while recovering from addiction. The most challenging part of the entire process is the detox and the withdrawal symptoms. These symptoms can at times become so severe that the patient needs medication to stabilize. 

Out of all the addictive substances, there are three of them which require the patient to undergo a medically-assisted detox. Those three substances are mentioned in the blog below. 

3 Addictive Substances Needing MAT Program 

The three most addictive substances with severe withdrawal symptoms are mentioned below:

  1. Alcohol 

Alcohol is one of the most addictive substances. Prolonged consumption of alcohol can easily lead to alcohol addiction which then requires the individual to undergo detox and severe withdrawal symptoms like: 

  • Insomnia
  • Irritability and restlessness
  • Excessive sweating and high fever
  • Anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting 
  1. Opioids 

Opioids or prescription drugs are other substances with a set of severe withdrawal symptoms. Some of them are:

  • Seizures
  • Increased heart rate 
  • Irritability and restlessness
  • Sweating 
  • Fever 
  • Anxiety 
  • Depression 
  • Nausea and vomiting 
  • Stomach cramps 
  • Diarrhea 
  • Muscle aches 
  1. Benzodiazepines 

Benzodiazepines or benzos also have certain severe withdrawal symptoms which need medically-assisted detox. The symptoms are: 

  • Seizures
  • Sweating and fever
  • Nausea 
  • Vomiting 
  • Anxiety 
  • Restlessness
  • Headaches 
  • Muscle aches and spasms

If addicted to any of these substances, the only option left to get sober again is by attending a medically-assisted detox program at a reliable rehab center.
