One of the out-patient rehabilitation options for people in Pullman who are battling with opioid abuse and addiction is called opioid maintenance therapy. Some facilities and doctors are certified to administer certain meds to opioid dependent people, many of which are opioids also and are addictive. In low enough doses the individual doesn't experience high feelings but also doesn't have acute cravings and is not experiencing opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first medication used for this reason, but there are a few more options currently to select from.
Methadone is an opiate and can be taken at an outpatient clinic certified to administer the med, that is taken daily as a pill or liquid. The cost of the drug is about $150 monthly. Buprenorphine is also an opioid-based med, and is a pill often taken every other day. But unlike Methadone that is only be dispensed in structured medical centers, Buprenorphine can be and is prescribed and administered in doctor's offices. The price monthly of buprenorphine is around just under $300 /month for the generic version of the medication. There is also a version of buprenorphine that contains the ingredient naloxone, which is a drug that reverses the effects of opiates. Someone 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 a month. Naltrexone is another med used in opioid maintenance therapy, but unlike the other drugs aforementioned it's an opioid blocker and is not an opioid. A person has the choice to take this drug as a monthly injection, and that is called Vivitrol. As an opioid blocker, the drug prevents a person from experience high feelings from opioids, and therefore lowers the risk associated with relapse. This daily injection costs in the range of $1000 to $1200 per month.
