One of the outpatient treatment options for clients in Alleyton who are battling with opioid dependence and addiction is called opioid maintenance therapy. Some clinics and doctors are certified to administer specific meds to opioid dependent clients, many that are opioid-based also and are addiction. With low enough amounts however, the user does not feel high and also does not experience severe cravings and is not experiencing opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first med administered for this reason, but there are alternative choices currently to pick from.
Methadone is an opioid and is meant to be taken at an out-patient medical center certified to dispense the drug, that is taken on a daily basis as a pill or liquid. The price of the drug is around one hundred and fifty dolloars a month. Buprenorphine is also an opiate based med, and is in pill form often taken one day on, one day off. But unlike Methadone that is only be administered in structured medical centers, Buprenorphine can be prescribed and dispensed in doctor's offices. The cost monthly of buprenorphine is about just under $300 monthly for the generic of the drug. There is also a version of buprenorphine containing the drug naloxone, that is a med that blocks the effects of opiates. A person consuming this version of the drug, also known as Suboxone, would find it harder to get high from opioids if they relapsed while taking the drug. It too is taken on a daily basis, and is priced about $450 a month. Naltrexone is an additional medication taken in opioid maintenance therapy, but unlike the other drugs mentioned here it's an opioid blocker and isn't an opiate. A person has the choice to take this drug as a monthly injection, which is called Vivitrol. As an opioid blocker, it prevents someone from experience being high from opioids, and in turn lowers the risk associated with relapse. This daily shot costs anywhere from $1000 to $1200 /month.
