Madison Comprehensive Treatment Centers offers top-notch medication assisted treatment for individuals, aged 18 or older, who are battling opioid addictions. Our centers utilizes the following safe and effective prescription medications within our highly individualized treatment plans in order to help men and women overcome the aftereffects of ceasing opioid use:
Methadone: Methadone is a synthetic opioid agonist that aids patients in safely weaning off of opioids without experiencing the painful symptoms of withdrawal, as well as cravings for additional opioids.
Subutex: Subutex includes buprenorphine as its single active ingredient to block the effects of opioids within a patient’s brain. Subutex is a partial opioid agonist-antagonist and works to reduce the symptoms of withdrawal, while also lessening cravings for additional opioid use.
Suboxone: Suboxone contains both buprenorphine and naloxone and works to lessen the symptoms associated with withdrawal, while also curbing cravings for additional opioid use. Unlike other medications used in treatment, Suboxone will cause withdrawal symptoms should a patient attempt to abuse it or other opioids during treatment.
The medication prescribed, as well as the specific dosage given, will vary for each patient based on his or her individual treatment needs. Medications can be altered throughout the course of treatment if deemed appropriate by our medical team. Madison Comprehensive Treatment Centers also provides patients with therapeutic interventions to help address the psychological components of addiction. The knowledgeable and compassionate staff of physicians, nurses, and counselors is dedicated to providing patients with the highest quality care available in order to ensure positive treatment outcomes. The following additional services are afforded to patients within our comprehensive treatment:
- Individual therapy sessions provide patients with the opportunity to openly discuss their addiction in a one-on-one environment with a highly trained counselor. Patients are able to process their emotions, recovery, setbacks, and victories in a safe atmosphere.
- Group therapy sessions are counselor-led sessions that allow patients to come together with other individuals who understand the struggles associated with addiction and recovery. Group therapy provides patients with a peer network that yields encouragement and support.
