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

Buprenorphine is used in what is referred to as medication assisted treatment (MAT) for individuals in Groton who are dependent to opoids such as prescription pain killers or heroin. Not like Methadone which is also used in medication assisted treatment but is only allowed to be administered in highly structured clinics, Buprenorphine may be prescribed and dispensed by qualifying doctors which provides more people with access to this form of treatment.

When Buprenorphine is utilized in recovery it can help someone who is going through the intense cravings and withdrawal symptoms associated with opiate withdrawal. Buprenorphine works to manage and diminish these withdrawal symptoms so that the person can easier detox and stay off drugs as well as not participate in harmful drug seeking behaviors. When the medication assisted treatment concept was first envisioned and put into action, it wasn't meant to be a stand-alone activity but rather only part of a multi-faceted approach that would typically incorporate actual therapy practices for opioid dependency and addiction recovery. Buprenorphine use would only be one part of a bigger comprehensive treatment plan.

Buprenorphine might also produce the euphoric "high" associated with other opiate narcotics so it is commonly abused. This is another reason it is highly suggested that anyone choosing medication assisted treatment as the recovery method they want to take, to also receive help from professional addiction counselors to include other types of substance abuse therapy and self-help programs into their course of rehabilitation to ensure they are not at risk of relapse.
