About Our Addiction Treatment Services

Methadone is also known as Dolophine or Methadose. It is a synthetic opioid antagonist that is used to treat opioid dependence and chronic pain management. Methadone detoxification can be completed in a matter of days or over a period of six months. Although a single dose of methadone has a quick effect, the maximum effect can last up to five days. A single dose of pain relief can last for six hours. Effects last between 8 and 36 hours in those with normal liver function after long-term usage. Methadone is generally taken by mouth, and rarely by injection in a muscle.

These side effects are similar to other opioids. Side effects include dizziness and sleepiness as well as vomiting and sweating. Opioid abuse and Respiratory depression are serious risks. An extended QT interval could also cause abnormal heart rhythms. In the United States, methadone poisoning has resulted in a decline in deaths from 4,418 in 2011 down to 3,300 in 2015. Higher doses pose greater risks. Methadone is made from chemical synth and acts upon opioid receptors.

Gustav EhrhartMax Bockmuhl developed Methadone in Germany between 1937 and 1939. It was approved in the United States for use in 1947. It is listed on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines. Globally, 41,400 kilograms of it were produced in 2013. It is similarly regulated as other narcotic drug. It isn’t very expensive in the United States. Methadone Treatment is very common.

Suboxone, a medication used to treat opioid use disorder (OUD), is commonly used in medication-assisted therapy (MAT). It is used to manage withdrawal symptoms and reduce cravings in order to help people quit using opioids. Suboxone is a treatment that can be used to treat opioid addiction.

 

Buprenorphine, also known as a partial opioid antagonist, is an opioid medication that has relatively weak opioid effects. Buprenorphine can reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings, but not produce the full effects of other opioids like heroin, fentanyl or oxycodone. This can help you stop using opioid drugs.

It has a high binding affinity and may block other opioids binding to or activating your opioid receptors. This can help deter misuse of opioids. Because there is a limit on how many opioid receptors can activated, misuse of buprenorphine is less risky than other opioids. This reduces the risk of respiratory depression, which can lead to dangerously slow breathing.

Naloxone, an opioid receptor antagonist medication, is mixed with buprenorphine to make Suboxone or similar generic combinations. Although naloxone can be used alone to reverse the fatal effects of opioid overdoses, it is also included in this combination to discourage the misuse of buprenorphine. If it is dissolved and inhaled nasally, it will cause withdrawal symptoms in those who are opioid dependent.

Although Suboxone is effective in treating opioid addiction, it is also used as part of a holistic treatment plan that includes behavioral interventions and peer-support groups. When necessary, Suboxone can also be used to treat co-occurring mental conditions like depression or anxiety.

Addiction can be a complicated disease that can impact many aspects of one’s life. It was estimated that 20.7 Million Americans required treatment for substance abuse disorders in 2017. However, 2.5 million people received specialized treatment.

Individualized treatment for addiction must address both the underlying causes and the symptoms. This includes their ability and willingness to socialize and their mental and physical health. It also includes the consequences of substance use at school, work, home, and school. To effectively treat addiction, there are many options for therapy.

Addiction treatment consists of both individual and group therapy sessions. These sessions are designed to teach people in recovery how to stay sober and how to manage different situations without resorting to drugs and alcohol. The most common type of addiction treatment that is used in substance rehab is behavioral therapy. The general approach to behavioral therapy has been modified into many effective methods.

(MAT) is the use of Methadone or Suboxone medication in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies for the treatment of substance use disorders. A combination of medication and behavioral therapies is effective in the treatment of substance use disorders and can help some people to sustain recovery.

Integrated treatment planning that includes substance use screening and treatment is key to providing better health outcomes in integrated care.

How Medication Assisted Treatment Works

Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) is a combination medication and counseling that treats substance abuse disorders. Combining behavioral and medication therapies can help people get on the right track to recovery.

To provide high quality care in an integrated environment, it is important to address substance abuse. Patients with substance abuse disorders often have chronic conditions. Integrative healthcare that includes substance use screening and treatment can result in better outcomes.

Step 1: Evaluation

When we evaluate someone, we take into consideration many different variables. We don’t focus on the dependency alone; we also consider the social circumstances, support systems, and motivations for change.

Step 2: Create A Plan

After an evaluation, we take our medical expertise and provide our patients with an individualized plan that combines these factors. We work with each individual in a judgement-free environment and treat them with compassion.

Step 3: Start Treatment

The combination of medication and behavioral therapy is what treats addiction. The medication staves off the physical symptoms, withdrawal and cravings.  The counseling helps patients address their emotional and behavioral issues associated with addiction. 

Benefits of Methadone & Suboxone

Pain Management

Pain is often a reason people become subject to opioid addiction. Suboxone and methadone are great ways to manage pain without the high risk of abuse. This is key to those who are struggling with pain management.

Stops Cravings

Methadone & Suboxone do not produce a high and only allows for someone to feel normal. These non addictive qualities make Methadone & Suboxone such an effective method of overcoming addiction.

Withdrawal Aid

Methadone & Suboxone makes the brain produce the same reaction that it would while taking drugs. This reduces withdrawal symptoms and allows for an individual to change harmful habits into healthy ones.

They are completely impersonal! Some counselors are very unprofessional, ignorant & don't care about your needs!... Truthfully they're just worried about that check they get for each patient that continues to come! I got denied information for a food pantry from my counselor who already cared because her supervisor said she would be showing favoritism if she continued to help me with that personal matter! They wonder why some people relapse or maybe even overdose, it's because of people like that that lie about caring for the next person's wellbeing out of convenience for money, then leave them hanging when they're no longer needed! F**K NEW JOURNEY!!!!read more
