Dr. Edwin A. Salsitz, Medical Director, Office Based Opioid Therapy, Beth Israel Medical Center and Dr. Josh Hersh, Staff Psychiatrist, Miami University Student Counseling Services, discuss Medication-Assisted Treatment. Addiction is a brain disease and can be successfully treated with Medication-Assisted Treatment such as Naltrexone, Methadone and Suboxone. These medications can normalize and stabilize the brain and improve brain function so that recovery can be met. Dr. Salsitz reminds us all that “all treatments work for some people. No one treatment works for everyone.”
