Buprenorphine Used in Treatment - Drug and Alcohol Rehab Programs - Needham Heights, MA.

Buprenorphine is utilized in what is referred to as medication assisted treatment (MAT) for people in Needham Heights who are dependent to opoids such as prescription pain killers or heroin. Unlike Methadone which is also used in medication assisted treatment but is only allowed to be distributed in highly structured clinics, Buprenorphine may be prescribed and dispensed in doctor's offices which gives more people with access to this form of treatment.

When Buprenorphine is administered in treatment it can help someone who is experiencing the intense withdrawal symptoms and cravings brought on by opiate withdrawal. Buprenorphine works to manage and reduce these withdrawal symptoms so that the individual can easier detox and stay off drugs and not participate in harmful drug seeking behaviors. When the medication assisted treatment idea was first envisioned and put into action, it wasn't meant to be a stand-alone activity but rather only part of a "whole-patient" approach that would also include actual rehabilitation for substance abuse and addiction. Buprenorphine use would only be one component of a larger all-encompassing treatment plan.

Buprenorphine can also bring about the euphoric "high" associated with other opiates so it can be misused. For this reason it is important for anyone deciding on medication assisted treatment as the recovery plan they'd like to take, to also receive help from substance abuse counselors to incorporate other forms of substance abuse therapy and self-help actions into their course of treatment so that they are not at risk of relapse.
