New Hampshire Comprehensive Treatment Centers provide men and women, aged 18 and older, with outpatient medication assisted treatment for opioid addiction. As a leading team of treatment providers, our staff of addiction experts understands the importance of receiving treatment in order to successfully defeat an addiction to opioids. The following medications are available for patients to have incorporated into their treatment plans:
Methadone: Methadone is a synthetic opioid agonist that provides patients with relief from the physical symptoms of withdrawal while also relieving cravings for continued opioid use. Unlike opioids, methadone will not cause patients to experience a euphoric high or cognitive impairment, therefore allowing them to continue to play an active role in their daily obligations.
Subutex: With buprenorphine as its active ingredient, Subutex is a partial opioid agonist-antagonist that is prescribed to eliminate the uncomfortable symptoms of withdrawal while keeping cravings for additional opioid use at bay. Subutex blocks the effects that opioids have on a patient’s brain without causing cognitive disruptions.
Suboxone: Utilizing a combination of naloxone and buprenorphine, Suboxone is prescribed to diminish cravings for additional opioid use while eliminating symptoms of withdrawal. Unlike other medications that are prescribed in treatment, Suboxone will cause patients to experience withdrawal symptoms should they attempt to abuse this medication or other substances during the course of treatment.
The medication that is prescribed, as well as the dosage that is administered, will be dependent upon the individual needs of each patient. Medications can be altered during the course of treatment if necessary.
In addition to the medication assisted treatment that is offered, New Hampshire Comprehensive Treatment Centers also offer therapeutic interventions in order to help patients progress in their treatment. Our team of physicians, nurses, and counselors believe that by taking a comprehensive treatment approach, patients are able to obtain support and treatment for both the physical and the emotional aspects of their addiction. The following therapeutic services are available for patients to have incorporated into their treatment program:
- Individual counseling sessions provide patients with the opportunity to work one-on-one with a qualified counselor in order to address and treat the underlying causes of their addictive behaviors. These sessions also afford patients the chance to work through any issues that may arise during the course of their treatment.
- Group counseling sessions are counselor-led sessions that bring patients together with their peers in a safe and supportive environment. These sessions are designed to educate and guide patients towards a life without addiction. Patients are able to openly discuss their struggles and achievements amongst other individuals who understand firsthand the hurdles associated with addiction.
The all-inclusive treatment provided by New Hampshire Comprehensive Treatment Centers provides men and women with the opportunity to regain control of the life that has been overtaken by addiction.
