One of the out-patient rehabilitation options for individuals in Jamestown who are struggling with opioid abuse and addiction is opioid maintenance therapy. Some clinics and doctors are certified to dispense certain meds to opioid addicted people, many that are opioids also and are addiction. In low amounts the individual doesn't experience being high but also does not have intense cravings and isn't in opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first drug tried for this sole purpose, but there are a few more choices to select from.
Methadone is an opioid and is meant to be taken at an outpatient medical center licensed to dispense the drug, that is taken on a daily basis as a pill or liquid. The cost of the med is approximately $150 a month. Buprenorphine is also an opiate based med, and is a pill often taken every other day. But different from Methadone which is only be administered in well-regulated clinics, Buprenorphine can be prescribed and administered in doctor's offices. The monthly cost of buprenorphine is around three hundred dollars a month for the generic version of the medication. There is also a version of buprenorphine that contains the ingredient naloxone, that is a drug that reverses the effects of opiates. An individual consuming this version of the drug, AKA Suboxone, would find it harder to get high from opioids if they relapsed while taking the drug. It is also taken daily, and is priced approximately $450 monthly. Naltrexone is an additional med taken in opioid maintenance therapy, but unlike the other medications mentioned it's an opioid blocker and isn't an opiate. A person has the choice to take this medication as a monthly injection, and that 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 injection costs anywhere from $1000 to $1200 per month.
