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

Buprenorphine is used in what is known as medication assisted treatment (MAT) for individuals in Southwick who are opiate dependent to heroin or prescription pain killers. Not like Methadone which is also used in medication assisted treatment but is usually only administered in highly structured clinics, Buprenorphine can be prescribed and administered by qualifying doctors which supplies easier access to this form of treatment.

When Buprenorphine is used in recovery it can help individuals who are going through the intense withdrawal symptoms and cravings associated with opiate withdrawal. Buprenorphine works to manage and minimize these withdrawal symptoms so that the person can focus and stay off drugs as well as not participate in harmful drug seeking behaviors. When the medication assisted treatment concept was first conceived and perpetuated, it wasn't intended to be a primary form of treatment but rather only part of a multi-faceted approach that would ideally incorporate actual rehabilitation for substance abuse and addiction recovery. Buprenorphine use would only be one piece of a larger comprehensive plan.

Buprenorphine might also bring about the euphoric "high" associated with other opiates so it is sometimes abused. This is another reason it is crucial for anyone choosing medication assisted treatment as the treatment method they prefer to take, to also receive help from professional addiction counselors to include other methods of substance abuse therapy & counseling and life repair actions into their course of recovery to ensure they are not at risk of relapse.
