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

Buprenorphine is utilized in a type of treatment referred to as medication assisted treatment (MAT) for people in Lexington 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 strictly controlled clinics, Buprenorphine can be prescribed and dispensed by qualifying doctors which gives more people with access to this form of treatment.

When Buprenorphine is utilized in treatment it can help someone who is experiencing the intense cravings and withdrawal symptoms associated with opiate withdrawal. Buprenorphine helps to control and minimize these withdrawal symptoms so that the person can focus and stay off drugs as well as not engage in typical drug seeking behaviors. When the medication assisted treatment concept was first formed and implemented, it wasn't intended to be a stand-alone activity but rather only part of a "whole-patient" approach that would typically involve actual therapy practices for opioid dependency and addiction recovery. Buprenorphine use would only be one piece of a bigger all-encompassing plan.

Buprenorphine will also bring about some of the euphoric effects of other opiates so it is sometimes abused. This is another reason it is important for anyone thinking about medication assisted treatment as the recovery plan they'd like to take, to also enlist the help of addiction counselors to incorporate other methods of behavioral therapy and self-help actions into their plan of rehabilitation to ensure they are not at risk of relapse.
