One of the out-patient rehab options for individuals in Haslett struggling with opioid abuse and addiction is called opioid maintenance therapy. Some clinics and doctors are authorized to dispense certain meds to opioid dependent clients, many that are opioid-based also and are habit forming. With low amounts the user doesn't feel high and also doesn't experience intense cravings and isn't experiencing opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first drug administered for this purpose, but there are other choices currently to select from.
Methadone is an opioid and is meant to be taken at an outpatient medical center licensed to administer the drug, that is taken on a daily basis as a pill or liquid. The cost of the drug is approximately one hundred and fifty dolloars a month. Buprenorphine is also an opioid based drug, and is a pill often taken one day on, one day off. But different from Methadone that can only be given in structured medical centers, Buprenorphine can be prescribed and dispensed in doctor's offices. The monthly cost of buprenorphine is around $300.00 per month for the generic of the medication. There is also a type of buprenorphine that contains the ingredient naloxone, which is a drug that reverses the effects of opiates. Someone consuming this formulation, AKA Suboxone, would find it more difficult to feel high from opioids if they relapsed while taking the drug. It is also taken on a daily basis, and is priced approximately $450 monthly. Naltrexone is an additional med used in opioid maintenance therapy, but unlike the other drugs mentioned it is an opiate blocker and is not an opiate. There is an option to take this medication as a monthly shot, which is called Vivitrol. As an opioid blocker, it prevents a person from getting high from opioids, and in turn lowers the risk associated with relapse. This daily shot costs anywhere from $1000 to $1200 a month.
