Buprenorphine Used in Treatment - Alcohol and Drug Treatment Programs - Berkley, MA.

Buprenorphine is utilized in what is known as medication assisted treatment (MAT) for individuals in Berkley who are dependent to opoids such as prescription pain killers or heroin. Dissimilar to 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 administered by qualifying doctors which provides more people with access to this type of opiate treatment.

When Buprenorphine is used in recovery it can help someone who is experiencing the intense cravings and withdrawal symptoms brought on by opiate withdrawal. Buprenorphine helps to control and minimize these withdrawal symptoms so that they can focus and stay off drugs as well as not participate in typical drug seeking behaviors. When the medication assisted treatment concept was first envisioned and perpetuated, it wasn't intended to be a primary form of treatment but rather only part of a multi-faceted approach that would also incorporate actual rehabilitation for substance abuse and addiction recovery. Buprenorphine use would only be one piece of a larger comprehensive recovery plan.

Buprenorphine will also produce some of the euphoric effects of other opiates so it is sometimes misused. This is another reason it is highly suggested that anyone deciding on medication assisted treatment as the treatment route they'd like to take, to also work with professional addiction counselors to include other methods of behavioral therapy and self-help programs into their course of treatment to ensure they feel confident about recovery.
