Services

Jacksonville, FL Methadone Treatment Services

Patients at MedMark Jacksonville have access to opioid addiction services such as these.

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) has years of scientific evidence supporting its effectiveness in treating opioid addiction. During your MAT program, you will receive medication and therapy that promote recovery. At MedMark Jacksonville, we offer treatment with methadone and buprenorphine, our field’s most trusted MAT medications. These medicines help you manage physical withdrawal symptoms. Your treatment team will work with you to determine which medication will be the most effective for you. Discover the differences between methadone and buprenorphine:
  • Methadone: Addiction professionals started to treat patients with methadone in the 1960s and 1970s. Methadone does not lose effectiveness as someone takes more of it. As a result, doctors can use it to treat severe addiction symptoms. To protect you and other patients, we will require you to come to the clinic every day to take your medicine. After you meet recovery goals under federal regulations, you can earn the right to take methadone at home.
  • Buprenorphine: Buprenorphine received FDA approval in 2002. It has a “ceiling effect,” meaning at a certain point increasing the dose will not increase the medication’s effects. It provides an alternative to methadone for individuals looking to recover from addiction.

Your medical provider will work with you to determine which medication is right for you based on your drug use and medical history.

Substance Misuse Counseling

Therapy allows patients to explore the emotional elements of addiction. During counseling, patients examine the psychological causes behind their addictions to develop new behaviors. They also learn how to manage difficult situations and triggers for use. We offer two types of opioid addiction counseling:

  • Individual: Every patient participates in individual counseling with an addiction therapist. During your therapy sessions,  you will make recovery goals and learn the skills needed to meet them. You will have a personalized experience where you can safely share your thoughts and feelings related to addiction.
  • Group: Some patients also take part in group therapy meetings that involve a therapist and a group of patients. Your counselor will lead a discussion about your recovery experiences and progress. Group therapy lets you find solidarity with other patients and share coping strategies.

Other Supportive Care Services

To support your medication and counseling treatment, we also offer services such as:

  • Case management: Your case manager will oversee your care plan to keep your care team informed of your treatment goals.
  • Addiction and relapse prevention education: We offer educational sessions and materials that teach you how to prevent and manage relapse.
  • Discharge planning: If you decide to finish services at our clinic, we will provide you with the follow-up care and referrals you need to succeed.
  • Community service referrals: Our team can provide referrals to community resources that help you with food, housing and other necessities.
