One of the outpatient treatment alternatives for individuals in Mayville who are battling with opioid dependence and addiction is called opioid maintenance therapy. Licensed facilities and doctors are certified to dispense certain meds to opioid addicted people, many that are opioid-based also and are addiction. In low enough amounts however, the individual doesn't experience being high but also doesn't experience intense cravings and isn't experiencing opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first medication tried for this sole purpose, but there are other options to choose from.
Methadone is an opioid and is meant to be taken at an outpatient clinic certified to dispense the med, which is taken daily in liquid or pill form. The cost of the med is approximately $150 monthly. Buprenorphine is also an opioid-based med, and is a pill often taken every other day. But unlike Methadone which can only be dispensed in highly well-regulated medical centers, Buprenorphine can be and is prescribed and administered in doctor's offices. The cost monthly of buprenorphine is approximately $300 per month for the generic of the medication. There is also a type of buprenorphine that contains the ingredient naloxone, that is a med which blocks the effects of opioids. Someone 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 every day, and costs around $450 per month. Naltrexone is an additional medication taken in opioid maintenance therapy, but unlike the other drugs mentioned here it's an opioid blocker and isn't an opiate. There is an option to take this drug as a monthly shot, and that is called Vivitrol. As an opioid blocker, it prevents someone from feeling high from opioids, and in turn lowers the risk associated with relapse. This daily shot costs anywhere from $1000 to $1200 /month.
