Stabilization & Maintenance
This is the second phase of treatment. During this phase, your doctor may continue to adjust your dose until you find, and continue on, the dose that works for you. It is important to take your medication as directed.

During this phase is when you may also begin working on your treatment goals with your doctor and counselor. At times when you feel stressed, or experience triggers or cravings, your doctor may suggest a dose adjustment, or there may be a need to change the frequency of counseling and/or behavioral therapy.

Occasionally, as you achieve your treatment goals and feel confident about your progress, your physician may suggest a dose decrease. During these times, you are “restabilized.” This is why stabilization and maintenance go together.
