One of the outpatient treatment options for clients in Leesburg battling with opioid dependence and addiction is opioid maintenance therapy. Some clinics and doctors are certified to dispense specific meds to opioid addicted people, many of which are opioids also and are addiction. With low enough amounts the user does not experience being high and also does not experience severe cravings and isn't experiencing opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first med used for this purpose, but there are alternative options to pick from.
Methadone is an opioid and can be taken at an outpatient clinic licensed to dispense the drug, that is taken daily as a pill or liquid. The cost of the med is around $150 a month. Buprenorphine is also an opiate based drug, and is in pill form often taken one day on, one day off. But unlike Methadone which can only be administered in well-regulated 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 version of the medication. There is also a type of buprenorphine containing the drug naloxone, that is a drug that reverses the effects of opiates. Someone consuming this formulation, AKA Suboxone, would find it more difficult to feel high from opioids if they relapsed while taking the drug. It too is taken every day, and is priced around $450 monthly. Naltrexone is another med taken in opioid maintenance therapy, but unlike the other drugs aforementioned it's an opiate blocker and isn't an opioid. There is an option to take this drug as a monthly injection, which is called Vivitrol. As an opioid blocker, it prevents an individual from feeling high from opioids, and therefore lowers the risk associated with relapse. This daily injection costs anywhere from $1000 to $1200 /month.
