One of the out-patient rehab alternatives for clients in Poolville who are struggling with opioid dependence and addiction is called opioid maintenance therapy. Some facilities and doctors are certified to administer specific medications to opioid addicted individuals, many of which are opioid-based themselves and are addiction. In low enough doses however, the client doesn't experience being high but also does not have severe cravings and is not in opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first med used for this reason, but there are alternative options to choose from.
Methadone is an opiate and can be taken at an outpatient clinic licensed to dispense the drug, that is taken daily as a pill or liquid. The price of the drug is approximately $150 a month. Buprenorphine is also an opiate based med, and is a pill often taken one day on, one day off. But unlike Methadone which is only be administered in highly well-regulated medical centers, Buprenorphine can be and is prescribed and dispensed in doctor's offices. The price monthly of buprenorphine is about three hundred dollars per month for the generic of the drug. There is also a type of buprenorphine containing the drug naloxone, that is a drug which reverses the effects of opioids. Someone taking this formulation, AKA Suboxone, would find it harder to get high from opioids if they relapsed while taking the drug. It is also taken daily, and is priced approximately $450 /month. Naltrexone is another medication used 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 shot, which is called Vivitrol. As an opioid blocker, the drug prevents someone from feeling high from opioids, and in turn lowers the risk associated with relapse. This daily injection costs anywhere from $1000 to $1200 a month.
