Medication-Assisted Treatment for Opioid Addiction


Methadone is a synthetic opioid used for more than 50 years to treat heroin and opioid addiction. Methadone fills opioid receptors, relieving withdrawals and cravings.


Buprenorphine, also known by its brand-names: Suboxone, Subutex, and others; is now available in our treatment program. Like methadone, buprenorphine binds to opioid receptors, relieving withdrawal symptoms and reducing cravings for opioids like heroin.


Vivitrol is a time-release, injectable form of the drug Naltrexone. It blocks opioid drugs from binding to receptors for about 28 days.
