One of the outpatient rehab alternatives for individuals in Hobson who are battling with opioid abuse and addiction is opioid maintenance therapy. Licensed centers and doctors are authorized to give specific medications to opioid dependent clients, many that are opioids also and are addiction. With low enough amounts the client doesn't feel high and also doesn't have intense cravings and is not experiencing opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first med tried for this sole purpose, but there are a few more options to choose from.
Methadone is an opiate and can 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 cost of the med is approximately $150 monthly. Buprenorphine is also an opiate based drug, and is a pill often taken one day on, one day off. But different from Methadone which can only be given in highly structured medical centers, Buprenorphine can be prescribed and dispensed in doctor's offices. The price monthly of buprenorphine is around three hundred dollars a month for the generic version of the med. There is also a version of buprenorphine containing the drug naloxone, that is a drug which blocks the effects of opiates. An individual taking this version of the drug, AKA Suboxone, would find it harder to feel high from opioids if they relapsed while taking the drug. It too is taken every day, and is priced around $450 /month. Naltrexone is another medication taken in opioid maintenance therapy, but unlike the other medications mentioned it's an opiate 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, it prevents an individual from getting high from opioids, and therefore lowers the risk associated with relapse. This daily injection costs anywhere from $1000 to $1200 per month.
