Outpatient Opioid Addiction Treatment
in El Dorado, Arkansas

If you’re struggling with the effects of opioid misuse, you aren’t alone. Opioid addiction can happen to people of any age, nationality or gender. Sadly, it’s a common condition in Arkansas and throughout the nation. More than 2 million Americans currently struggle with misusing opioids.

Fortunately, hope is available. If you want to break the bonds of your addiction, you’ll find that AppleGate Recovery in El Dorado offers medication-assisted treatment for opioid addiction. We invite you to learn more and decide if our outpatient recovery process is the right match for you.

Medication-Assisted Treatment Options for Opioid Addiction

AppleGate Recovery in El Dorado 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 overdose. 

What is 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.

Suboxone Treatment

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.

Counseling Services

Our medication-assisted treatment for opioid addiction addresses the whole patient, body and mind. That’s why our Suboxone clinic in El Dorado provides counseling services, including:

  • Individual counseling: This helps you work through past trauma, learn relapse prevention strategies and set goals for your recovery process. Counseling will also encourage you to create support systems and learn positive coping skills.
