One of the out-patient rehab options for clients in Eagle Lake who are battling with opioid abuse and addiction is opioid maintenance therapy. Licensed clinics and doctors are authorized to dispense certain medications to opioid addicted clients, many that are opioid-based also and are addiction. With low enough amounts however, the user doesn't experience being high and also does not experience acute cravings and is not in opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first medication administered for this reason, but there are other choices to choose from.
Methadone is an opiate and can be taken at an outpatient medical center 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 one day on, one day off. But different from Methadone which can only be given in highly structured clinics, Buprenorphine can be prescribed and dispensed in doctor's offices. The price monthly of buprenorphine is around just under $300 /month for the generic of the medication. There is also a type of buprenorphine containing the drug naloxone, that is a med which reverses the effects of opioids. An individual taking this formulation, also known as Suboxone, would find it harder to get high from opioids if they relapsed while taking the drug. It is also taken daily, and costs about $450 a month. Naltrexone is an additional med used in opioid maintenance therapy, but unlike the other medications aforementioned it is an opioid blocker and isn't an opioid. There is an option to take this drug as a monthly shot, which is called Vivitrol. As an opioid blocker, the drug prevents a person from experience high feelings from opioids, and in turn lowers the risk associated with relapse. This daily injection costs in the range of $1000 to $1200 monthly.
