Outpatient Methadone Buprenorphine or Vivitrol - Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Centers - Benton Harbor, MI.

One of the out-patient rehab options for people in Benton Harbor battling with opioid abuse and addiction is opioid maintenance therapy. Licensed facilities and doctors are certified to administer specific medications to opioid addicted individuals, many that are opioids also and are habit forming. In low enough amounts the client does not experience being high but also does not experience acute cravings and is not in opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first drug used for this sole purpose, but there are other options currently to pick from.

Methadone is an opioid and is meant to be taken at an outpatient clinic certified to administer the med, which is taken on a daily basis as a pill or liquid. The cost of the med is about $150 a month. Buprenorphine is also an opioid based drug, and is in pill form often taken every other day. But different from Methadone which can only be given in highly well-regulated medical centers, Buprenorphine can be and is prescribed and dispensed in doctor's offices. The price monthly of buprenorphine is about $300 /month for the generic of the med. There is also a type of buprenorphine that contains naloxone, that is a drug which reverses the effects of opiates. An individual taking this formulation, AKA Suboxone, would find it more difficult to get high from opioids if they relapsed while taking the drug. It too is taken on a daily basis, and costs about $450 monthly. Naltrexone is an additional med taken in opioid maintenance therapy, but unlike the other medications mentioned here it is an opiate blocker and isn't an opiate. A person has the choice to take this drug as a monthly injection, and that is called Vivitrol. As an opioid blocker, the drug prevents someone from experience high feelings from opioids, and in turn lowers the risk associated with relapse. This daily shot costs anywhere from $1000 to $1200 per month.
