One of the outpatient rehabilitation options for people in Decatur battling with opioid abuse and addiction is called opioid maintenance therapy. Some facilities and doctors are authorized to give specific meds to opioid dependent people, many that are opioids also and are addictive. In low enough doses however, the individual doesn't feel high and also doesn't have intense cravings and is not experiencing opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first med used for this purpose, but there are other choices currently to choose from.
Methadone is an opiate and can be taken at an outpatient clinic certified to administer the med, which is taken daily in liquid or pill form. The cost of the med is about one hundred and fifty dolloars a month. Buprenorphine is also an opioid based drug, and is in pill form often taken every other day. But unlike Methadone which is only be dispensed in highly well-regulated medical centers, Buprenorphine can be prescribed and administered in doctor's offices. The price monthly of buprenorphine is about just under $300 monthly for the generic of the medication. There is also a version of buprenorphine that contains naloxone, that is a drug which reverses the effects of opioids. Someone consuming this formulation, AKA Suboxone, would find it harder to get high from opioids if they relapsed while taking the drug. It is also taken every day, and is priced around $450 per month. Naltrexone is an additional med used in opioid maintenance therapy, but unlike the other medications aforementioned it is an opioid blocker and isn't an opioid. There is an option to take this medication as a monthly shot, which is called Vivitrol. As an opioid blocker, the drug prevents someone from getting high from opioids, and therefore lowers the risk associated with relapse. This daily injection costs in the range of $1000 to $1200 monthly.
