Medication-Assisted Treatment Options for Opioid Addiction in Richmond

AppleGate Recovery Richmond specializes in providing medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid addiction. Our comprehensive treatment includes the use of prescribed medication and counseling to help you with your recovery.

Our prescribed medication helps stop your cravings, while the counseling program provides you with an opportunity to address areas of your life that need to be addressed as well learn healthy coping skills for the future. The medications our professionals prescribe for opioid addiction include the following.

  1. Buprenorphine

Buprenorphine is an FDA-approved partial opioid agonist that is used in treating opioid addiction. When taken, the medication attaches to the brain’s opioid receptors and activates them, but to a lesser extent than the full opioid agonists often misused such as prescription pain relievers, heroin and fentanyl. By connecting to the brain receptors, buprenorphine prevents significant withdrawal symptoms and lessens the cravings for opioids. This helps you concentrate on other aspects of your recovery. Buprenorphine also has a ceiling effect as a partial agonist, meaning that at a certain point taking more medication will not increase the medication’s effects. This prevents misuse and minimizes the risk of overdose when the medication is taken properly.

  1. Suboxone®

This is another prescription option that combines buprenorphine with naloxone. Naloxone is an opiate antagonist that knocks other opioids off of the brains receptors. Instead of activating the brain’s receptors, this property allows naloxone to prevent other opioids from attaching to the receptors, which prevents them from creating euphoric effects or causing overdose. The combination of naloxone with buprenorphine is a great deterrent to misuse because if an individual injects the medication the naloxone causes them to go into immediate withdrawal.

Counseling Program for Opioid Addiction

We believe medication is an effective tool in fighting opioid addiction, but it should be combined with ongoing support to produce long-term sobriety. That’s why our treatment plan combines medication with counseling which may include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing or other techniques to provide you with healthy coping skills that aid your recovery.

Our experts at AppleGate Recovery Richmond are experienced professionals with an understanding of the challenges of treating opioid addiction and other substance use disorders. You don’t have to worry about confidentiality during counseling, either. We are HIPAA compliant, and our counselors are well-trained to create a safe and confidential setting.

Our counseling options include the following:

  1. Individual counseling:This counseling session allows you to come up with relapse prevention strategies, find support systems, work through trauma and set personal goals for recovery.
  2. Group counseling:It’s crucial to understand that you aren’t alone in your recovery, and our group counseling serves to remind you of that. These group sessions offer a support network where members share their experiences, which then can help to motivate you to stick with your recovery efforts.
