Buprenorphine (brand name Subutex, among others) is an opioid medication used to treat opioid addiction. Buprenorphine can prevent or significantly reduce withdrawal symptoms, making it easier to get and stay off opioids. Sometimes used alongside naloxone, dosage depends on the severity of each case. Many people stay on buprenorphine long-term, although some gradually reduce the dosage to come off it.
Vivitrol, a prescription medication comprised of the opioid-antagonist naltrexone, has extended-release properties. When used in medication assisted treatment programs, Vivitrol is effective in treating alcoholism and opioid dependency. Naltrexone was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1984 and received further approval to be used for treatment of alcoholism in 2006 and treatment of opioid addiction in 2010.
Methadone is a United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved prescription medication that is used in medication assisted treatment programs. Methadone is a safe and effective option for treating opioid dependence when used within a medication assisted treatment program. Methadone prevents cravings for additional opioids, as well as decreasing the uncomfortable symptoms that can accompany withdrawal.

Medically Assisted Detox:
Drug and alcohol addiction often takes a heavy toll on one's body. Over time, a physical dependence can develop, meaning the body physiologically needs the substance to function. Detox is the process of removing drugs and/or alcohol from the body, a process that can be lethal if mismanaged. Medical detox is done by licensed medical professionals who monitor vital signs and keep you safe, healthy, and as comfortable as possible as you go through detox and withdrawal.
Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) are for those who want or need a very structured treatment program but who also wish to live at home and continue with certain responsibilities (such as work or school). IOP substance abuse treatment programs vary in duration and intensity, and certain outpatient rehab centers will offer individualized treatment programs.
Outpatient Programs (OP) are for those seeking mental rehab or drug rehab, but who also stay at home every night. The main difference between outpatient treatment (OP) and intensive outpatient treatment (IOP) lies in the amount of hours the patient spends at the facility. Most of the time an outpatient program is designed for someone who has completed an inpatient stay and is looking to continue their growth in recovery. Outpatient is not meant to be the starting point, it is commonly referred to as aftercare.
Certain drug and alcohol rehabs have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person's specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.
Substance rehabs focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.
Opioid rehabs specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.
Individual therapy is a method of treatment that entails a patient meeting with a counselor in a one-on-one setting. This setup is extremely beneficial for individuals working through an addiction to drugs, such a prescription medications, morphine, or heroin.
Group therapy involves multiple individuals coming together during one therapeutic session. Like individual therapy, group therapy sessions are counselor-led. Unlike individual therapy sessions, however, group therapy involves multiple participants working together towards a shared goal.
