Buprenorphine Used in Treatment - Alcohol and Drug Rehab Facilities - Assonet, MA.

Buprenorphine is used in a type of treatment referred to as medication assisted treatment (MAT) for people in Assonet who are opiate dependent to prescription pain killers or heroin. Not like Methadone which is also used in medication assisted treatment but is only allowed to be dispensed in strictly controlled clinics, Buprenorphine can be prescribed and dispensed by qualifying doctors which gives more people with access to this type of opiate treatment.

When Buprenorphine is utilized in treatment it can help someone who is experiencing the intense cravings and withdrawal symptoms brought on by opiate withdrawal. Buprenorphine helps to control and reduce these withdrawal symptoms so that the individual can stay off drugs and not engage in typical drug seeking behaviors. When the medication assisted treatment idea was first conceived and put into action, it wasn't meant to be a primary form of treatment but rather only part of a multi-faceted approach that would also incorporate actual therapy practices for opioid dependency and addiction recovery. Buprenorphine use would only be one component of a larger comprehensive treatment plan.

Buprenorphine might also cause some of the euphoric effects of other opiates so it can be abused. For this reason it is important for anyone deciding on medication assisted treatment as the recovery method they'd like to take, to also enlist the help of substance abuse counselors to incorporate other forms of substance abuse therapy and self-help actions into their course of treatment to ensure they feel confident about recovery.
