One of the out-patient rehab options for clients in Honor battling with opioid abuse and addiction is called opioid maintenance therapy. Licensed clinics and doctors are certified to give specific meds to opioid dependent people, many that are opioid-based themselves and are addiction. With low doses the individual does not experience being high and also does not experience acute cravings and is not experiencing opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first med tried for this purpose, but there are alternative options to select from.
Methadone is an opiate and can be taken at an outpatient clinic licensed to dispense the med, that is taken daily in liquid or pill form. The price of the med is approximately $150 per month. Buprenorphine is also an opioid based med, and is in pill form often taken one day on, one day off. But unlike Methadone that is only be dispensed in structured medical centers, Buprenorphine can be and is prescribed and administered in doctor's offices. The cost monthly of buprenorphine is around just under $300 /month for the generic version of the medication. There is also a type of buprenorphine that contains the ingredient naloxone, that is a drug which blocks the effects of opiates. A person consuming this formulation, AKA Suboxone, would find it more difficult to feel high from opioids if they relapsed while taking the drug. It too is taken daily, and is priced about $450 /month. 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 opioid. A person has the choice to take this drug as a monthly shot, which is called Vivitrol. As an opioid blocker, it prevents an individual 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.
