MedMark Treatment Centers Murphy takes a patients-first approach in treating opioid addiction. Only safe and proven methods of treatment are provided to our patients, which include methadone and buprenorphine.
Outpatient treatment is a great option for those who want to overcome their addiction while fulfilling their day-to-day commitments. Since treatment is offered earlier in the day, it can have little to no interference with work or family. In addition to addiction treatment, MedMark Murphy offers counseling, physical examinations, and community referrals to help patients with their overall well-being.
Our evidence-based treatment program is certified by the Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and has already helped countless patients improve their quality of life.
At MedMark Murphy, we specialize in medication-assisted treatment (MAT). Our MAT programs combine medicine, counseling and other supportive services to address every aspect of addiction. Opioid addiction impacts multiple areas of well-being, and MAT targets these aspects. Our MAT services include the following.
Methadone has years of evidence showing its effectiveness in treating opioid use disorder. It relieves the physical symptoms of addiction to help you manage your recovery. During a methadone-based MAT program, you will visit the clinic every day for treatment. As you meet recovery goals established by federal rules, you can earn the privilege to take it at home. This program format gives you extra structure as you transition to recovery.
The FDA approved buprenorphine medication for addiction care in 2002. Buprenorphine and buprenorphine combination medicines work similarly to methadone by relieving withdrawal symptoms. However, they have a “ceiling effect” that limits their effectiveness past a certain amount. This aspect makes buprenorphine safer to take at home than methadone and take-home medications may be earned more quickly.
One-on-one therapy serves as much importance as medicine in our MAT programs. Your medication will reduce the physical effects of addiction to help you focus on your behavioral care. During opioid addiction therapy, you and your counselor will make recovery goals together and work toward meeting them. Everyone has a unique experience with this service. You might talk about past traumas, learn coping skills or discuss another aspect of addiction during therapy.
MAT offers more positive outcomes than illicit use or detox during pregnancy. Methadone lowers the risk of miscarriage, premature labor and needle-related infection in pregnant patients. Our team can develop a treatment plan that accounts for the changes in your body that happen during pregnancy.
Under federal and state regulations, we need to perform regular drug screenings on our patients. These tests help us provide you with better services and refer you to any other addiction treatments you need.
Our lab can perform select types of blood tests for drug screenings and other medical purposes. Blood tests help us understand your health so we can give you the care you need.
As part of your MAT program, you will receive a physical examination every year. Your yearly physical will let us evaluate your health as you progress through recovery.
Every patient at our clinic has a case manager who oversees their care plan. Your case manager will ensure your treatment team works toward the same recovery goals.
We welcome patients of all life experiences to reach out to us for help if they have an opioid addiction. Please contact our team online or call us at 828-837-5335 to learn more about our services.
