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

Buprenorphine is utilized in what is referred to as medication assisted treatment (MAT) for people in Rochester 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 only allowed to be dispensed in strictly controlled clinics, Buprenorphine may be prescribed and administered in doctor's offices which gives easier access to this form of treatment.

When Buprenorphine is administered in recovery it can help someone who is experiencing the intense cravings and withdrawal symptoms associated with opiate withdrawal. Buprenorphine works to manage and diminish these withdrawal symptoms so that they can easier detox and stay off drugs as well as not carry out typical drug seeking behaviors. When the medication assisted treatment concept was first conceived and implemented, it wasn't meant to be a stand-alone activity but rather only part of a "whole-patient" approach that would ideally incorporate actual therapy practices for opioid dependency and addiction. Buprenorphine use would only be one part of a bigger all-encompassing recovery plan.

Buprenorphine can also produce the euphoric "high" associated with other opiate narcotics so it is commonly misused. This is another reason it is highly suggested that anyone deciding on medication assisted treatment as the recovery plan they want to take, to also receive help from substance abuse counselors to incorporate other forms of substance abuse therapy and self-help programs into their plan of treatment to ensure they feel confident about recovery.
