During medication-assisted treatment, you will take medicine that relieves your withdrawal symptoms. Just like opioids do, methadone and buprenorphine meet your brain’s need for opiates. Under a doctor’s supervision, these medications will address your symptoms without causing euphoria. Combined with therapy, buprenorphine and methadone give you extra support as you learn recovery skills.
The opioid addiction field has decades of positive outcomes with methadone maintenance treatment. In 2002, buprenorphine was approved by the FDA for use with opioid addiction and has shown positive results as well. During a maintenance program with methadone or buprenorphine, you will take your medicine at the clinic every day. As you meet federal and state benchmarks, you’ll earn the ability to take it at home. This program format adds structure as you transition to recovery.
Depending on your symptoms and experiences, you might benefit more from one medication than the other. Your treatment team will help you find the right choice for your needs.
Counseling serves as a core component of today’s medication-assisted treatment programs. Every patient has one-on-one sessions with a therapist who helps them manage recovery. Addiction involves a variety of psychological factors that a counselor can address. Everyone has a different experience with addiction therapy due to individual needs, but your counseling sessions may involve:
Group counseling is also offered at MedMark San Antonio Quincy. Group work provides patients the opportunity to build a support network of others who have had similar experiences and challenges, helping them to work through feelings of shame and guilt.
We understand that recovery takes a lifelong effort. Your treatment team will support you in your success with relapse prevention and discharge planning services. During relapse prevention education, you will find out how to handle triggers for opioid use. If you complete services at our clinic, we will also offer discharge planning that helps you transition out of care.
Patients also receive social support in the form of case management and referrals. Your MedMark case manager will oversee your care plan and coordinate treatment. If you need help with food, housing or another necessity, they can refer you to a community resource.
