One of the out-patient rehab options for people in Pittsburg struggling with opioid abuse and addiction is called opioid maintenance therapy. Some centers and doctors are authorized to administer certain meds to opioid addicted individuals, many that are opioids also and are habit forming. With low enough doses however, the individual doesn't experience high feelings and also does not experience severe cravings and is not experiencing opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first med tried for this reason, but there are other choices to choose from.
Methadone is an opiate and can be taken at an outpatient clinic certified to dispense the drug, that is taken on a daily basis in liquid or pill form. The price of the drug is approximately $150 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 that can only be dispensed in structured medical centers, Buprenorphine can be and is prescribed and administered in doctor's offices. The cost monthly of buprenorphine is approximately three hundred dollars /month for the generic of the medication. There is also a type of buprenorphine containing the drug naloxone, which is a drug which reverses the effects of opioids. A person consuming this formulation, AKA Suboxone, would find it harder to feel high from opioids if they relapsed while taking the drug. It is also taken daily, and costs around $450 per month. Naltrexone is an additional medication taken in opioid maintenance therapy, but unlike the other drugs aforementioned it's an opiate blocker and is not an opioid. There is an option to take this medication as a monthly shot, and that is called Vivitrol. As an opioid blocker, the drug prevents a person from feeling high from opioids, and in turn lowers the risk associated with relapse. This daily injection costs anywhere from $1000 to $1200 per month.
