One of the outpatient rehabilitation options for clients in Loretto who are battling with opioid dependence and addiction is opioid maintenance therapy. Licensed centers and doctors are authorized to administer certain meds to opioid addicted clients, many that are opioid-based themselves and are addiction. With low amounts the individual doesn't experience high feelings and also doesn't have severe cravings and isn't in opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first drug administered for this reason, but there are other options to select from.
Methadone is an opioid and is meant to be taken at an out-patient medical center certified to administer the drug, that is taken on a daily basis in liquid or pill form. The price of the med is around $150 a month. Buprenorphine is also an opioid-based med, and is in pill form often taken one day on, one day off. But unlike Methadone which can only be administered in structured medical centers, Buprenorphine can be prescribed and administered in doctor's offices. The price monthly of buprenorphine is about three hundred dollars /month for the generic of the medication. There is also a type of buprenorphine that contains naloxone, which is a med that reverses the effects of opiates. An individual consuming this version of the drug, AKA Suboxone, would find it harder to feel high from opioids if they relapsed while taking the drug. It too is taken every day, and is priced about $450 /month. Naltrexone is another medication used in opioid maintenance therapy, but unlike the other medications mentioned here it's an opioid blocker and is not an opiate. There is an option to take this medication as a monthly injection, and that is called Vivitrol. As an opioid blocker, it prevents someone from experience high feelings from opioids, and therefore lowers the risk associated with relapse. This daily injection costs anywhere from $1000 to $1200 /month.
