(WTNH) —Medicated Assisted Treatment is being used to overcome opiate dependence and drug addiction.
Rushford’s continuum of care includes outpatient buprenorphine (Suboxone®) treatment for patients experiencing opiate dependency.
While opiate and prescription drug dependency on medications such as Percocet®, Vicodin®, Oxycontin® and heroin are challenging addictions, advances in the rehabilitation field have found buprenorphine, also known as Suboxone®, when accompanied with the appropriate counseling support to be a proven and effective treatment for addiction to opiates.
Buprenorphine acts as a medical intervention to alleviate the symptoms of opiate and prescription medication withdrawal in order to allow successful recovery.
While buprenorphine is a crucial first step in combating opiate or prescription drug addiction, counseling is an important part of a patient’s recovery plan, which may include one or more of the following:
- Group Therapy
- Intensive Outpatient Therapy (IOP)
- Intensive Residential Services
- Individual Therapy
