One of the out-patient rehabilitation options for clients in Enochs who are battling with opioid abuse and addiction is called opioid maintenance therapy. Licensed facilities and doctors are certified to dispense certain medications to opioid addicted clients, many of which are opioid-based also and are addiction. With low enough doses however, the user doesn't feel high but also does not experience intense cravings and is not in opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first med tried for this reason, but there are alternative choices currently to pick from.
Methadone is an opiate and is meant to be taken at an outpatient clinic licensed to administer the med, that is taken daily in liquid or pill form. The cost of the drug is around $150 per month. Buprenorphine is also an opiate based drug, and is in pill form often taken every other day. But unlike Methadone that can only be dispensed in well-regulated clinics, Buprenorphine can be and is prescribed and dispensed in doctor's offices. The monthly cost of buprenorphine is around $300.00 monthly for the generic version of the drug. There is also a version of buprenorphine that contains the ingredient naloxone, that is a drug that reverses the effects of opiates. An individual consuming this formulation, also known as Suboxone, would find it harder to feel high from opioids if they relapsed while taking the drug. It is also taken every day, and is priced about $450 per month. Naltrexone is an additional medication taken in opioid maintenance therapy, but unlike the other medications aforementioned it's an opioid blocker and is not an opiate. There is an option to take this medication as a monthly injection, which is called Vivitrol. As an opioid blocker, it prevents an individual from experience being high from opioids, and therefore lowers the risk associated with relapse. This daily injection costs in the range of $1000 to $1200 a month.
