Outpatient Opioid Addiction Treatment in Monroe, Louisiana

Have you been looking for a helping hand to assist you in your recovery from opioid addiction? The opioid epidemic has spread to millions of people in the U.S., including people of all ages, genders and races throughout Louisiana. Fortunately, if you live in the Monroe area, AppleGate Recovery can help.

We understand how painful this disease can be for both you and your loved ones, which is why our addiction specialists are here with compassionate care to free you from the chains of opioid misuse. Our HIPAA-compliant clinic offers a proven combination of medication-assisted treatment and referral to individual counseling services for patients throughout Monroe and all of Ouachita Parish.

Our Medication-Assisted Addiction Treatment Services

Many people struggling with opioid addiction are unable to stay sober due to the painful withdrawal symptoms they experience. With medication-assisted treatment from our Monroe facility, that doesn’t have to be the case. Our treatment program can help you manage your cravings and withdrawal symptoms so that you can focus on other aspects of your recovery. The medications we use include:

  • Buprenorphine: Buprenorphine is an FDA-approved opioid that can fight your cravings by attaching to the brain’s opioid receptors. It will prevent other opioids from taking full effect, lower cravings and reduce symptoms of withdrawal.
  • Suboxone: While buprenorphine on its own is fairly safe and hard to overdose on, Suboxone reduces the risk of misuse even further. By combining buprenorphine with an opiate antagonist called naloxone, Suboxone lessens the risk of abuse since the ingredients will cause immediate withdrawal symptoms if injected.

The foundation for any successful treatment plan lies in identifying your triggers, dealing with the stress of everyday life and finding healthy coping skills. Our team can refer you to a counselor who will help you navigate each of these aspects using an individualized combination of counseling strategies.

Counseling Services

Along with medication-assisted treatment, our opioid treatment center in Monroe 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.

Why Choose AppleGate Recovery for Outpatient Opioid Addiction Treatment?

At AppleGate Recovery in Monroe we’re fully committed to making your journey to recovery a positive one. We offer more than a decade of experience in the field of medication-assisted treatment for opioid addictions, as well as the following benefits to make your treatment as comfortable and successful as possible:

  • Kind, compassionate care: We know addiction isn’t a choice, and we’ll never pass judgment no matter where you are in your recovery. We treat each person who enters our clinic with the utmost respect and dignity.
  • Personalized treatment: No addiction treatment plan is one-size-fits-all. We’ll take the time to get to know you and your story before scheduling treatment or prescribing medication to make sure you get the proper fit.
  • Unique treatment methods: Medication, counseling and physical exams on their own can’t treat both the emotional and physical aspects of your addiction, but when they’re combined, they offer a holistic approach to your recovery.
