Methadone maintenance treatment (MMT) is the most effective and researched treatment for addiction to opiates such as Vicodin, OxyContin, Lortab, Percocet, Morphine, Heroin, Codeine, Hydrocodone and Oxycodone. Methadone is widely used throughout the world to treat illegal opiate addiction and the negative consequences of opioid addiction like disease, death and crime.
Methadone is prescribed individually, with medication levels determined based on differences in addiction history, opiate tolerance, body weight and metabolism. A proper maintenance dose will relieve opiate craving and withdrawal without creating euphoria or sedation for 24 to 36 hours.
The goal of methadone maintenance treatment is to eliminate illegal opiate use stabilizing the patient for as long as necessary to help restore their lives and avoid returning to previous patterns of illegal and dangerous drug use.
Recovery is far more than the removal of addictive substances from an otherwise unchanged life. It is time we told the story of what the use of medications combined with comprehensive and sustained clinical and recovery support services can add to the quality of life of individuals, families and communities.William L. White, Chestnut Health Systems
Faces and Voices of Recovery (FAVOR)
Buprenorphine medications like Suboxone and Zubsolv are used to treat opiate addiction. As one of the newest medications available, like Methadone, Buprenorphine blocks painful withdrawal symptoms and cravings in order to help the patient feel normal again.
When taken once daily, Buprenorphine blocks other opioids from attaching to receptors in the brain and helps control symptoms and cravings, so he or she can focus on resolving issues, while gaining relapse prevention skills.
When combined with counseling, Buprenorphine treatment can help a patient stop misusing opioids, help them feel normal again so they are able to successfully rebuild their life.
Across Michigan and our country, parents are struggling with how to help addicted sons and daughters. Husbands and wives worry about spouses caught in the grip of addiction. Rates of opioid abuse, heroin addiction, overdose and death are a concern in schools and hospitals, treatment centers and neighborhoods in every state. One weapon in the fight against this epidemic is buprenorphine, a medication that helps to block the craving for heroin.Carl Levin, US Senator, Michigan
Vivitrol is a newer injectable medication that is used to treat opiate addiction and alcohol addiction. An oral version is available as the generic naltrexone, and may also be known as ReVia.
Vivitrol blocks other opioids from acting on the receptors in the brain and can also help ease drug cravings. By blocking the effects of other opioids it takes away the pleasurable effect, which can help with preventing relapse.
Studies have shown that opioid-dependent patients who received counseling and Vivitrol had significantly more days of complete abstinence, stayed in treatment longer, reported less craving, and were less likely to relapse to physical dependence.
Vivitrol is a valuable addition to the recovery toolbox, along with methadone and buprenorphine…medical research unequivocally shows that most individuals addicted to opiates require some form of medication to recover from their addiction, a chronic brain disease…Vivitrol, like any other medication for opioid dependence, must be accompanied by a firm commitment to recovery, including substance abuse counseling, outpatient programs and support systems.Dr. Mark Publicker, President, Northeast Society of Addiction Medicine
