One of the out-patient rehab alternatives for people in Alleyton who are struggling with opioid dependence and addiction is opioid maintenance therapy. Some centers and doctors are certified to give certain meds to opioid addicted clients, many that are opioid-based themselves and are addiction. In low amounts however, the user does not experience high feelings but also does not have acute cravings and is not experiencing opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first med used for this purpose, but there are other options to choose from.
Methadone is an opioid and can be taken at an outpatient medical center certified to dispense the med, which is taken on a daily basis in liquid or pill form. The price of the drug is around one hundred and fifty dolloars a month. Buprenorphine is also an opioid-based drug, and is a pill often taken one day on, one day off. But unlike Methadone which can only be dispensed in highly structured clinics, Buprenorphine can be and is prescribed and administered in doctor's offices. The cost monthly of buprenorphine is about just under $300 monthly for the generic version of the med. There is also a version of buprenorphine that contains the ingredient naloxone, that is a drug which blocks the effects of opioids. An individual taking this version of the drug, also known as Suboxone, would find it more difficult to feel high from opioids if they relapsed while taking the drug. It is also taken daily, and costs around $450 a month. Naltrexone is an additional med 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 medication as a monthly injection, which is called Vivitrol. As an opioid blocker, the drug prevents someone from experience being high from opioids, and in turn lowers the risk associated with relapse. This daily shot costs in the range of $1000 to $1200 monthly.
