Medication-Assisted Treatment Options for Opioid Addiction

AppleGate Recovery in El Dorado, AR, specializes in medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid addiction. We offer both prescriptions and therapy designed to help you in your recovery. The medications we prescribe can prevent cravings, decrease withdrawal symptoms and increase your safety if you do overdose. They include the following.

1. Buprenorphine

Buprenorphine is an opioid, but it works differently than opioids like heroin and oxycodone. This medication is a partial opioid agonist, which is an opioid that attaches to the brain’s opioid receptors and activates them to a far lesser degree than most other opioids. By fastening itself to these receptors, it prevents other opioids from attaching and causing euphoria.

When taken correctly, buprenorphine can lessen the effects of withdrawal, including your cravings for opioids. Then, you can better focus on other aspects of your recovery.

2. Suboxone®

Suboxone® is a medication that combines buprenorphine with the opiate antagonist known as naloxone. Naloxone attaches to the brain’s opioid receptors, but it doesn’t activate them at all. Instead, it entirely blocks opioids from attaching to the receptors and creating any euphoric feelings.

Because buprenorphine on its own has the potential for misuse, many people take Suboxone® to avoid the risk of abuse. Not only will Suboxone not produce any opioid effect, but it will also cause immediate withdrawal symptoms if someone tries to misuse it through injection — an effective deterrent to reduce misuse.

Individual and Group Addiction Counseling in El Dorado, Arkansas

While medication is a useful tool in fighting opioid addiction, ongoing support is just as essential in a treatment plan. At AppleGate Recovery, we offer patients throughout El Dorado, AR, a variety of counseling services in a safe, judgment-free setting. Our professional addiction treatment options include:

  • Individual addiction treatment: Individual counseling goes beyond the symptoms of addiction to address underlying emotional factors.
