Questions About Treatment

bg-questions

What makes AppleGate Recovery different than other addiction treatment clinics?

The staff at each and every AppleGate Recovery clinic is chosen very carefully with special attention paid to their ability to express professional compassion and deliver the highest quality of care. We believe addiction is a disease, and each patient should be treated just as you would if being treated for any other life threatening disease.

The treatment delivered at AppleGate Recovery is exclusive to opioid use disorder. Our focus is on providing the best medication-assisted treatment, counseling and support services to address the issues specific to opiate addiction.

Is counseling available?

Individual and group counseling options are available at AppleGate Recovery clinics. Those who actively participate in counseling while in a medication-assisted treatment program are significantly more likely to experience success with long-term recovery.

What is the difference between methadone and buprenorphine?

Buprenorphine, the active ingredient in Suboxone®, and methadone are both opioids, and activate the opioid receptors on nerve cells. Both are long acting medications, and that makes them very useful for the purposes of opiate addiction treatment. However, there are very key differences that distinguish these two medications from one another.

Buprenorphine is what is called a partial agonist, which means it does not activate receptors to the same level as methadone. The effects felt have a ceiling, meaning they will not reach and excessively pleasurable level, no matter how much the dose is increased so are very difficult to abuse. Suboxone® contains Naloxone which acts as an antagonist blocking other opioids. Suboxone® suppresses withdrawal symptoms and cravings while blocking other opioids rendering it an effective treatment for opioid dependency like other buprenorphine compounds.

Methadone is a full opioid agonist with no ceiling effect. This is similar to the way heroin impacts the brain as it is also a full agonist. Methadone can be more easily abused, and it is possible to overdose, however, once the right dosage is achieved, it can also be successful in the treatment of opioid addiction.
