At our Milford, Ohio methadone clinic, we offer a comprehensive treatment plan for opioid misuse and addiction. Each person’s treatment plan is customized to meet their specific needs. In most cases, our OTP (opioid treatment program) includes:
The kind of treatment plan created for each patient will depend on the severity of their addiction and how soon they come to us for treatment.
The medicines used for opioid treatment are methadone and buprenorphine. These medications reduce cravings for opioids and help curb withdrawal symptoms. They work on the same parts of the brain that opioids influence for pain relief, but without giving the patient a high when a therapeutic dose is reached. Properly administered, methadone and buprenorphine help restore balance in the section of the brain that was altered by opioid addiction.
After a doctor has thoroughly examined a patient and made a proper diagnosis, they will prescribe an appropriate amount of methadone or buprenorphine. You can take these medicines safely for years without any adverse side effects if you follow your doctor’s instructions. Once you start taking them, you should continue to do so as prescribed unless your doctor advises you to stop.
MedMark counselors are professionals, trained to help you set goals, conquer setbacks and celebrate your daily progress as well as work through family and relationship challenges.
If you’re on a medication-assisted treatment plan, counseling will help you:
Counseling usually includes specific behavioral therapies such as:
In addition to individual counseling, we offer group counseling. Working in groups can improve your ability to relate to others as you work through your opioid addiction. In group counseling, you will experience the support of processing issues with other patients who understand your challenges and want to see you overcome them.
Patients who can receive support from their family members may also benefit from family counseling. This type of therapy helps to restore family relationships and can increase a patient’s motivation to overcome addiction.
At MedMark, we adopt a compassionate and holistic approach to opioid treatment. We use medication-assisted therapy to ensure that patients can resume a healthy life without experiencing withdrawal symptoms.
