There are many different ways to treat addiction. It is a mental and physical issue that requires a combination of approaches to address, including medical care, holistic healing, traditional and alternative therapy methods, group activities, and more. One way to address substance abuse issues is through medication assisted addiction treatment. This is an effective way to treat addictions, especially to drugs that may cause severe withdrawal symptoms.

Medication assisted addiction treatment is a method of treatment that uses medication to combat the effects of an addictive substance and wean the patient off of use. During medication assisted addiction treatment, your doctor will also address any health effects caused by drug use. Medication assisted addiction treatment is often used in combination with therapy, inpatient and outpatient programs, and other methods.
In most cases, medication assisted addiction treatment is used to address substance use issues with highly-addictive drugs such as heroin, prescription painkillers, and other opioids. Medication assisted addiction treatment may also be used to treat addictions to other prescription drugs and alcohol, but can be a successful way to resolve a variety of addiction issues. Determining if medication assisted addiction treatment will work for you will require a careful evaluation of your usage habits, medical needs, and other factors.
Medication assisted addiction treatment is a good part of an effective substance abuse treatment plan. We are happy to answer any questions you may have, advise you on your treatment plan, and help you get started on your recovery.
Your medication assisted addiction treatment plan may involve the use of drugs such as suboxone, naltrexone, and vivitrol. Although each of these drugs is used to treat addiction, they are very different drugs that are each appropriate in different situations.
Your medication assisted addiction treatment plan may involve the use of medications such as:
Suboxone — Suboxone is a drug that is mainly used to treat addiction to opioids. The drug works in part by blocking the positive feelings that opioids bring, such as pain relief, relaxation, and euphoria. By doing this, patients often begin to curb their desire to use opioids.
Naltrexone — Naltrexone is used to treat opioid addiction, but is primarily prescribed to people who are not currently using drugs. Taking naltrexone while also using opioids can produce harmful effects.
Vivitrol — Vivitrol is another name for naltrexone. It is primarily administered intravenously. Vivitrol can be used to treat addictions to alcohol and drugs. It should not be used at the same time as other drugs or while a patient is drinking. Rather than altering the effects that alcohol or drugs produce, vivitrol works by reducing a patient’s urge to drink or use drugs.
