Medication and psychotherapy are the treatment options used to address serious fentanyl addiction. When combining these two options to help people with opioid use disorder, doctors refer to them under a single name: medication-assisted treatment (MAT)1. On the medication side, MAT involves the use of the anti-opioid naltrexone, the opioid buprenorphine or the opioid methadone. Buprenorphine and methadone — which don’t get you “high” or support addictive behavior when used appropriately — help you make it through withdrawal without veering back into uncontrolled fentanyl misuse.
On the psychotherapy side2, one common choice for fentanyl-related treatment is a technique known as community reinforcement approach (CRA) plus vouchers. This form of therapy provides you with a tangible reward when you follow your recovery plan. Likewise, it withholds the same reward when you don’t. A second option, contingency management (CM) follows roughly the same model. A third option, 12-step facilitation therapy, helps you recognize the benefits of participation in a self-help group.
