Medication-Assisted Treatment

Learn more about treatment options for opioid addiction.

When mild to moderate withdrawal symptoms from Opioids occur, medically assisted treatment with Buprenorphine, Buprenorphine/Naloxone (Suboxone) is used to prevent withdrawal symptoms that induce illness and uncomfortable feelings, as well as to diminish cravings.

The injectable brand name version of naltrexone, Vivitrol can be administered to assist people to maintain abstinence while recovering from Opioid addiction. Vivitrol is given as an intramuscular injection once every 28 days.

Our doctors that specialize in buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) can assist in managing additional discomfort by prescribing some of the following medications:

Loperamide (Imodium) to help with diarrhea
