MAT/MER + NARCAN © Description
What is MAT?
MAT is Medication Assisted Treatment, or any medication that can treat Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) or Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) withdrawal symptoms.
What is MER?
MER is Medication Enhanced Recovery (our own curriculum, but however does not skew far from similar curriculums such as MAR/MSR), which encompasses the recovery process overall for an individual suffering from addiction, and how MAT enhances it, not how it assists or supports it. 'Enhances' implies a better quality of the recovery, while assists/supports implies more of a minimal, non-significant segment of the entire process. But the truth is, MAT and access to it can be the difference between sobriety and continuing of usage; and with the founding and popularity of NARCAN, can be the difference of life and death.
What is NARCAN?
It is a life-saving and reversal medication used in the event of a suspected overdose. Its popular form comes as a nasal spray but it also comes in an injection form.
In This Training You Will Learn:
- To Control Bias.
Often times we find ourselves ignoring or justifying our biases, but that only hinders the process of helping a recoveree.
- Clinical Medications.
The basics of MAT, including many medications used to treat withdrawal symptoms, the benefits of MAT, and the effectiveness of each medication and procedures involved in the treatment process.
- Treatment vs. Recovery.
A lot of people generally assume (and with good reason) that treatment and recovery are closely related when in fact they are two completely different processes, and you will learn how to distinguish one from the another.
- First 90 Days.
This is a secret! But just know it will require you, the professional, to commit to something!
You will be able to demonstrate how to properly administer NARCAN.
