Buprenorphine Used in Treatment - Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers - Belmont, MA.

Buprenorphine is utilized in a type of treatment known as medication assisted treatment (MAT) for people in Belmont who are dependent to opoids such as heroin or prescription pain killers. Dissimilar to Methadone which is also used in medication assisted treatment but is usually only dispensed in highly structured clinics, Buprenorphine can be prescribed and dispensed in doctor's offices which gives more people with access to this form of treatment.

When Buprenorphine is used in recovery it can help someone who is going through the intense withdrawal symptoms and cravings brought on by opiate withdrawal. Buprenorphine works to control and minimize these withdrawal symptoms so that the person can focus and stay off drugs and not engage in typical drug seeking behaviors. When the medication assisted treatment concept was first realized and perpetuated, it wasn't meant to be a primary form of treatment but rather only part of a "whole-patient" treatment plan that would also incorporate actual rehabilitation for substance abuse and addiction. Buprenorphine use would only be one piece of a larger all-encompassing recovery plan.

Buprenorphine can also cause the euphoric "high" associated with other opiates so it is sometimes abused. This is another reason it is highly suggested that anyone choosing medication assisted treatment as the recovery plan they prefer to take, to also work with addiction counselors to incorporate other types of behavioral therapy and life repair actions into their course of recovery to ensure they feel confident about recovery.
