Opioid Addiction Treatment in Louisville, Kentucky

Addiction is a dangerous disease. To overcome addiction to heroin, fentanyl, pain pills and other opioids, the compassionate team at AppleGate Recovery in Louisville is here for you. Located near Louisville, our Office-Based Opioid Treatment program is specially designed to address your individual needs. A physician will work with you one-on-one to find an appropriate dosage of prescription buprenorphine or buprenorphine compounds such as Suboxone.

Along with medication to help ease your withdrawal symptoms, we highly recommend taking advantage of substance use counseling services. We refer patients to counseling as a part of a whole-patient approach to overcome withdrawals and relapse triggers and rebuild confidence in every aspect of your life. Our highly professional opioid addiction center is fully certified, adhering to both Kentucky and Federal guidelines.

Outpatient Opioid Addiction Treatment in Louisville, Kentucky

Millions of people in the U.S. struggle with an addiction to both prescription and illicit opioids regardless of race, gender or age. If you are one of the many Kentucky residents struggling with opioid addiction, this is not the end of your story. Hope and healing are waiting at AppleGate Recovery in Louisville.

Our team of compassionate medical professionals is committed to providing the best care possible. Our Louisville outpatient treatment clinic specializes in medication-assisted treatment which counteracts the physical effects of opioid addiction, such as cravings and withdrawal symptoms.

Medication-Assisted Addiction Treatment Services for Residents in Louisville

As part of our whole-patient approach to patient care, AppleGate Recovery in Louisville focuses on medication-assisted treatment options. Using this evidence-based approach, we address the physical ramifications of opioid addiction so you can focus on other aspects of your recovery. Our medication-assisted treatment options include:

  • Buprenorphine treatment: This FDA-approved partial opioid agonist prevents patients from experiencing withdrawal symptoms and cravings. It attaches to the brain’s opioid receptors, activating them slightly. This ensures stronger opioids cannot attach to the receptors to produce euphoria, leaving you able to focus on your overall health.
  • Suboxone treatment: Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone, which is an opiate antagonist. By attaching to the brain’s opioid receptors but not activating them, naloxone prevents other opioids from taking effect. It can also cause withdrawal symptoms instantly if patients misuse it.

Counseling Services

Along with medication-assisted treatment, our Louisville opioid treatment center encourages patients to take part in substance use counseling options we can refer you to, including:

  • Individual counseling: As you work through past trauma and gain relapse prevention strategies, you’ll be able to set goals for your recovery process and build a healthy support system.
  • Group counseling: Being in a group with others who struggle with similar issues reminds you that you are not alone. You’ll be able to connect with people as they encourage you to continue your recovery process.

It’s just like treatment for any other disease. Some people with substance use disorder will need months of treatment, and some need more. The FDA recommends the need for continuing MAT should be re‐evaluated periodically. There is no maximum recommended duration of maintenance treatment, and for some patients, treatment may continue indefinitely.
Medication alone is not sufficient. It’s intended as a whole-patient approach for those with substance use disorder. They can be on medication, but they also go to meetings and get involved with other recovery activities. There are many aspects to recovery so that people can rebuild their lives and thrive.
Treatment that includes medication is often the best choice for opioid addiction. If a person is addicted, medication allows him or her to regain a normal state of mind, free of drug-induced highs and lows. It frees the person from thinking all the time about the drug, reduces problems of withdrawal and helps people manage their addiction so that the benefits of recovery can be maintained.
