This is where the foundation needed, both physically and emotionally, for a life-long recovery, are built. Residential treatment lasts 7 to 30 days.

Medication Assisted Therapy is the new standard of care in addiction treatment. Medication Assisted Therapy is the monitoring of medications that a patient takes to confirm that he or she is complying with a medication regimen. MAT also ensures the patient is avoiding potentially dangerous drug interactions and other complications.

Since 60-89% of people currently attending addiction treatment programs are taking some type of prescribed medication, MAT becomes crucial to successful outcomes. One North Recovery utilizes the most advanced combination of Pharmacogenomic testing and Toxicology. Pharmacogenomics is the study of how genes affect a person’s response to medication. PGx also seeks to predict what response an individual will have to a drug. Human drug metabolism is largely an inherited trait.
