One of the out-patient rehabilitation options for people in Summerfield battling with opioid abuse and addiction is opioid maintenance therapy. Licensed facilities and doctors are certified to dispense certain medications to opioid addicted individuals, many that are opioid-based also and are addiction. In low enough doses the individual does not feel high but also doesn't experience severe cravings and is not in opioid withdrawal. Methadone is the first med tried for this reason, but there are other choices currently to select from.
Methadone is an opiate and is meant to be taken at an out-patient medical center certified to dispense the drug, that is taken daily as a pill or liquid. The price of the med is around under $200 per month. Buprenorphine is also an opioid based med, and is a pill often taken every other day. But unlike Methadone that is only be dispensed in well-regulated medical centers, Buprenorphine can be prescribed and administered in doctor's offices. The price monthly of buprenorphine is approximately $300.00 monthly for the generic of the medication. There is also a version of buprenorphine containing the drug naloxone, which is a drug that blocks the effects of opiates. An individual consuming this version of the drug, also known as Suboxone, would find it more difficult to get high from opioids if they relapsed while taking the drug. It too is taken on a daily basis, and costs around $450 monthly. Naltrexone is an additional med taken in opioid maintenance therapy, but unlike the other medications mentioned here it is an opiate blocker and isn't an opiate. There is an option to take this drug as a monthly shot, and that is called Vivitrol. As an opioid blocker, it prevents an individual from experience being high from opioids, and in turn lowers the risk associated with relapse. This daily injection costs in the range of $1000 to $1200 per month.
