One of the outpatient rehabilitation options for individuals in Pullman who are battling with opioid abuse and addiction is called opioid maintenance therapy. Licensed facilities and doctors are certified to dispense specific medications to opioid dependent people, many of which are opioids themselves and are habit forming. With low amounts however, the individual does not feel high but also doesn't have severe cravings and isn't experiencing opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first drug administered for this reason, but there are other options currently to choose from.
Methadone is an opiate and is meant to be taken at an out-patient clinic certified to administer the drug, that is taken daily as a pill or liquid. The price of the med is around under $200 per month. Buprenorphine is also an opioid based med, and is in pill form often taken every other day. But different from Methadone which is only be given in highly well-regulated medical centers, Buprenorphine can be and is prescribed and administered in doctor's offices. The cost monthly of buprenorphine is about $300.00 a month for the generic of the drug. There is also a version of buprenorphine containing the drug naloxone, which is a drug which blocks the effects of opiates. A person consuming this formulation, also known as Suboxone, would find it harder to feel high from opioids if they relapsed while taking the drug. It too is taken on a daily basis, and costs about $450 monthly. Naltrexone is an additional med taken in opioid maintenance therapy, but unlike the other drugs mentioned here it's an opioid blocker and is not an opiate. A person has the choice to take this medication as a monthly injection, and that is called Vivitrol. As an opioid blocker, the drug prevents an individual from experience being high from opioids, and therefore lowers the risk associated with relapse. This daily injection costs in the range of $1000 to $1200 /month.
