AppleGate Recovery’s Medically Assisted Addiction Treatments
Our team specializes in medically assisted opioid addiction treatment. Medication assisted treatment (MAT) combines prescription medication with evidence-based therapy services for a well-rounded approach to recovery.
We prescribe the following medications to clients to reduce opioid cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
Many people with prescription pain pill addictions find relief with buprenorphine — a partial opioid agonist. While the medication itself is an opioid, it can reduce your opioid cravings by latching onto the brain’s opioid receptors and partially activating them. This process prevents other opioids like heroin from attaching to the receptors and taking full effect. It also eases the painful withdrawal symptoms associated with detox, which will allow you to better focus on your recovery.
While an overdose on buprenorphine is unlikely, the prescription can still be abused if taken incorrectly. That’s why some people prefer Suboxone®, a medication that combines buprenorphine with naloxone. Naloxone is an opioid antagonist, and it blocks the brain’s opioid receptors completely without activating them.
Naloxone combined with buprenorphine effectively deters many people from misusing their prescription. If someone tries to abuse Suboxone® via injection, it will immediately cause unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. Many people who are worried they might be tempted to abuse their medication enjoy this added incentive to use Suboxone® properly.
Group and Individual Opioid Addiction Treatments in Bossier City, Louisiana
Medications like buprenorphine and Suboxone® are exceptionally helpful in treating opioid addiction, but medicine alone won’t address your underlying triggers or other issues surrounding your addiction. We want to take care of both your body and your mind, which is why we also offer professional counseling services at our Bossier City, LA, location. These services are designed to help you find compassionate support and lasting companionship throughout your recovery and beyond. They include:
- Individual addiction treatment: Our professionals will help you find an individual treatment plan with a combination of the right medication and personalized one-on-one therapy. Together, we can help you overcome the cravings you’ll face during sobriety, learn healthier coping mechanisms and set motivational recovery goals.
- Group counseling: In group counseling, you’ll find support from people throughout Louisiana who are also overcoming their addictions. This safe, judgment-free setting will allow you to open up about your experiences and hold one another accountable for staying clean.
