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

Buprenorphine is used in a type of treatment known as medication assisted treatment (MAT) for individuals in Somerset who are dependent to opoids such as heroin or prescription pain killers. Unlike Methadone which is also used in medication assisted treatment but is only allowed to be administered in strictly controlled clinics, Buprenorphine may be prescribed and administered by qualifying doctors which provides more people with access to this type of treatment.

When Buprenorphine is utilized in treatment it can help individuals who are going through the intense cravings and withdrawal symptoms brought on by opiate withdrawal. Buprenorphine helps to manage and reduce these withdrawal symptoms so that they can focus and stay off drugs and not engage in harmful drug seeking behaviors. When the medication assisted treatment concept was first conceived and put into action, it wasn't meant to be a primary form of treatment but rather only part of a multi-faceted treatment plan that would ideally include actual rehabilitation for substance abuse and addiction. Buprenorphine use would only be one piece of a bigger comprehensive recovery plan.

Buprenorphine might also bring about some of the euphoric effects of other opiates so it is commonly misused. This is another reason it is important for anyone choosing medication assisted treatment as the recovery method they prefer to take, to also receive help from substance abuse counselors to incorporate other methods of behavioral therapy & counseling and life repair actions into their plan of recovery to ensure they feel confident about recovery.
