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

Buprenorphine is utilized in a type of treatment referred to as medication assisted treatment (MAT) for people in Waban who are opiate dependent to heroin or prescription pain killers. Dissimilar to Methadone which is also used in medication assisted treatment but is usually only distributed in highly structured clinics, Buprenorphine may be prescribed and dispensed in doctor's offices which supplies more people with access to this type of treatment.

When Buprenorphine is administered in recovery it can help someone who is experiencing the intense withdrawal symptoms and cravings brought on by opiate withdrawal. Buprenorphine helps to control and reduce 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 idea was first formed and implemented, it wasn't meant to be a primary form of treatment but rather only part of a multi-faceted treatment plan that would ideally involve actual therapy practices for opioid dependency and addiction. Buprenorphine use would only be one part of a larger comprehensive plan.

Buprenorphine might also produce some of the euphoric effects of other opiates so it is commonly misused. This is another reason it is crucial for anyone thinking about medication assisted treatment as the treatment method they'd like to take, to also receive help from substance abuse counselors to include other forms of substance abuse therapy and life repair actions into their course of rehabilitation so that they are not at risk of relapse.
