One of the outpatient rehab alternatives for individuals in Suttons Bay battling with opioid abuse and addiction is called opioid maintenance therapy. Some clinics and doctors are certified to give specific medications to opioid dependent individuals, many of which are opioid-based also and are addiction. In low amounts the user does not experience being high and also doesn't have acute cravings and isn't in opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first med tried for this reason, but there are alternative options to select from.
Methadone is an opiate and can be taken at an out-patient clinic licensed to administer the med, that is taken daily in liquid or pill form. The price of the med is about under $200 per month. Buprenorphine is also an opiate based drug, and is a pill often taken one day on, one day off. But unlike Methadone that is only be dispensed in structured medical centers, Buprenorphine can be and is prescribed and dispensed in doctor's offices. The monthly cost of buprenorphine is approximately three hundred dollars a month for the generic of the medication. There is also a type of buprenorphine containing the drug naloxone, that is a med that reverses the effects of opiates. A person taking this formulation, also known as 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 is priced about $450 /month. Naltrexone is another medication used in opioid maintenance therapy, but unlike the other drugs mentioned here it is an opiate blocker and isn't an opiate. A person has the choice to take this medication as a monthly injection, which is called Vivitrol. As an opioid blocker, the drug prevents an individual from feeling high from opioids, and therefore lowers the risk associated with relapse. This daily injection costs anywhere from $1000 to $1200 a month.
