One of the outpatient rehab alternatives for individuals in Moran who are battling with opioid abuse and addiction is opioid maintenance therapy. Licensed centers and doctors are certified to give certain medications to opioid dependent people, many of which are opioid-based also and are addiction. In low enough doses the client doesn't experience high feelings but also does not have severe cravings and is not in opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first med administered for this sole purpose, but there are alternative choices currently to select from.
Methadone is an opioid and can be taken at an out-patient clinic certified to dispense the med, that is taken daily as a pill or liquid. The price of the drug is about $150 monthly. Buprenorphine is also an opiate based drug, and is a pill often taken every other day. But unlike Methadone that can only be dispensed in highly well-regulated medical centers, Buprenorphine can be prescribed and administered in doctor's offices. The monthly cost of buprenorphine is about $300 per month for the generic version of the med. There is also a version of buprenorphine that contains naloxone, that is a med that reverses the effects of opioids. A person consuming this version of the drug, AKA Suboxone, would find it more difficult to get high from opioids if they relapsed while taking the drug. It is also taken on a daily basis, and costs approximately $450 /month. Naltrexone is an additional medication taken in opioid maintenance therapy, but unlike the other drugs aforementioned it's an opiate blocker and isn't an opioid. There is an option to take this medication as a monthly shot, which is called Vivitrol. As an opioid blocker, the drug prevents someone from feeling high from opioids, and in turn lowers the risk associated with relapse. This daily injection costs in the range of $1000 to $1200 monthly.
