One of the hurdles to those who would like to use MAT is that 12-step programs are not supportive of its use. Those programs define sobriety as complete abstinence from mind-altering substances, a category into which MAT falls. This is unfortunate because those who use MAT would very often benefit from the support that can be found in 12-step programs.
Like any treatment, MAT is not for everyone. Individuals should discuss all their concerns with their addiction treatment team, hopefully including a medical doctor who is an addiction specialist. All treatment protocols have benefits and disadvantages. Make sure you are comfortable with your choice and know that there are many different treatment options.
