About Our Services

Methadone is one of the opioid drugs. It was developed by German doctors in World War II. Doctors first used it to treat extreme pain. It could be used to treat an addiction to heroin or other narcotic painkillers. Methadone is safer that other narcotics. Methadone is safer than other narcotics. Your doctor should be aware that you are taking it. It can lead to addiction and abuse.

Methadone affects how your brain and nervous systems react to pain. This causes you to feel relief. Methadone’s effects can be less strong than that of stronger painkillers like morphine. If you have severe pain from an injury, surgery, or long-term illness, your doctor may prescribe Methadone. Methadone blocks the effects of codeine, heroin, hydrocodone, morphine and other drugs like oxycodone. It can cause a similar feeling and prevent withdrawal symptoms from occurring. Sometimes, this is called replacement therapy.

If you have severe pain, your doctor may prescribe methadone. Methadone will be prescribed to you for addiction through a special program. Methadone comes in powder, tablet, or liquid forms. You will need a prescription to get Methadone. Your doctor will recommend the correct dose. You may be asked to adjust the dose. Discuss how you feel about it with your doctor. Before you quit using methadone, talk to your doctor. Follow all instructions. You may be given tablets that are dissolvable. In this case, you should dissolve the entire tablet in liquid (usually water or citrus-flavored drinks) and then consume the entire thing. Methadone should not be taken to treat addiction for more than one year. Methadone withdrawal should not be a problem if you are being assisted by your doctor.

Suboxone is the brand name for a prescription medication that is used to treat opioid dependence. Suboxone is made up of two components, the opioid buprenorphine and the Naloxone medication. These two components work together to decrease the desire for addictive opioids such as heroin, codeine, and fentanyl. Only a Suboxone Clinic can prescribe Suboxone.

To treat opioid addiction, Suboxone can be used. The medication is used to treat opioid addiction.

Suboxone is a Schedule III controlled substance in the United States. It is considered to be safe and effective for medical use, with moderate addiction risk. Only a Suboxone Clinic certified by the Department of Health and Human Services can prescribe Suboxone. You can choose to take the medication in tablets or dissolvable films.

Addiction Treatment often consists of both individual and group therapy sessions. These sessions are designed to teach people in recovery how to stay sober and how to handle 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. These include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral therapy (CBT) 
  • Contingency Management. 
  • Motivational interview 
  • Dialectal Behavioral Treatment (DBT) 
  • Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT). 
  • Matrix Model. 
  • 12 Step Program. There are many 12-Step fellowships that host meetings, such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous.

(MAT) refers to the combination of Methadone and Suboxone with counseling and behavioral therapies in order to treat substance abuse disorders. Combining medication with behavioral therapies can be effective in treating substance abuse disorders. It can also help people stay on the road to recovery.

Integrative treatment planning, which includes substance abuse screening and treatment, is crucial to improving health outcomes in integrated care.

How Medication Assisted Treatment Works

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is a combination of counseling and medication. It is an effective treatment of opioid use disorders (OUD). Some people are able to sustain recovery.

More research is needed to develop treatments that treat OUD as a long-term, chronic disease. This will allow more people to get MAT. This also means that we must end stigmatization of OUD medications. It is also important to find ways to encourage OUD medical treatment.

Three opioid dependency medications have been approved by the FDA: methadone (buprenorphine), buprenorphine, and naltrexone. All three drugs have been proven safe and effective when used in combination with counseling and psychosocial support. All OUD patients should have access to all three options. This allows providers to work with patients and help them select the best treatment. OUD is a chronic condition and requires that MAT be performed on a regular basis. Patients can be treated as long as they want. Maintenance therapy is not limited in duration.

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. Evidence-based research shows that neither one is as effective on their own as they are together.
