- Alcohol dependence evaluation and treatment
- Opioid addiction/dependence and related drugs abuse.
- Suboxone Ambulatory Detoxification
The aim of the opioid treatment program is to reduce or completely eliminate:
- The use of illicit drugs
- Criminal activity
- The spread of infectious disease
- Medications for the opioid withdrawal treatment and this type of addiction are administered in combination with behavioral treatments (or psychosocial supports), which is known as MAT – Medication-Assisted Treatment.
Opioid therapy should also improve the functionality and overall quality of the patient’s life. It provides Medical Assisted Treatment for patients diagnosed with the opioid-use disorder and should provide a “whole-patient” type of approach to the opioid treatment program. According to the research conducted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the most productive and successful therapy is to combine abovementioned medication with behavioral therapies.
For patients who struggle with opiate dependence, Community Behavioral Health offers a Suboxone (buprenorphine/naltrexone) treatment program. Since federal guidelines restrict the number of patients that providers with Suboxone licenses can treat at any one time, our company has specific policies in place to ensure that patients who seek Suboxone treatment are appropriately screened for inclusion, monitored throughout treatment, and provided with the resources for success.
The main benefit of the Subutex treatment is that patients who use Suboxone or Subutex don’t experience the cravings and the side effects that almost always occur when they suddenly stop taking the opiate to which they are addicted. The buprenorphine in Subutex acts as an opiate substitute and tricks the patient’s brain into believing it has been given opiate, thus curbing the stage of withdrawal. Buprenorphine interacts with opioid receptors in the brain and is able to reduce pain and substantially decrease the risk of relapse.
When combined with professional counseling and behavioral modification, Subutex Therapy can be an extremely effective component of opioid addiction treatment.
