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

Buprenorphine is utilized in a type of treatment known as medication assisted treatment (MAT) for people in Westwood who are dependent to opoids such as prescription pain killers or heroin. Unlike Methadone which is also used in medication assisted treatment but is usually only distributed in highly structured clinics, Buprenorphine can be prescribed and dispensed in doctor's offices which supplies easier 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 stay off drugs as well as not engage in typical drug seeking behaviors. When the medication assisted treatment concept was first realized and implemented, it wasn't intended to be a stand-alone activity but rather only part of a multi-faceted treatment plan that would ideally incorporate actual therapy practices for opioid dependency and addiction. Buprenorphine use would only be one component of a larger comprehensive treatment plan.

Buprenorphine can also bring about some of the euphoric effects of other opiates so it can be abused. For this reason it is highly suggested that anyone thinking about medication assisted treatment as the recovery route they'd like to take, to also enlist the help of substance abuse counselors to include other types of behavioral therapy and self-help actions into their plan of recovery to ensure they feel confident about recovery.
