Methadone is a medication prescribed by a Medical Doctor to help someone addicted to opioids. There are several different types of opioids that people can become addicted to, but commonly these are heroin or prescription pain killers. Once ingested, Methadone works by mimicking the drug, but causes the body to react differently. Methadone ends the craving but does not create the high, and lasts for 24 hours. This is why methadone is so effective for use in opioid addiction.
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) is the use of medications along with counseling and therapy to treat substance abuse. MAT is mainly used to treat opioid addictions (i.e. heroin and/or prescription drugs like OxyContin or Vicodin). Medications like buprenorphine are used in MAT to help normalize brain chemistry, block the effects of alcohol and/or opioids, relieve cravings, and stabilize body functions, making sobriety easier to maintain. All medications used are approved by the FDA, and every MAT program is tailored to the patientâs specific needs.
Buprenorphine is a synthetic opioid medication used in the treatment of opioid dependence. It is available in various forms, including sublingual tablets (under the tongue) and sublingual strips. Compared with many other opioids, buprenorphine is quite powerful, requiring small doses to be effective. Some physicians are now using buprenorphine even to treat pain.
Naltrexone is an opioid antagonist medication with various medical applications, including the treatment of alcohol and opioid dependence, and is generally administered orally or by injection. Vivitrol refers to a particular extended-release injectable preparation of naltrexone that blocks the euphoric effects of opioids for a period of approximately one month.
Naltrexone is an FDA-approved medication used to treat opioid and alcohol addiction. Naltrexone helps reduce cravings and prevent relapse, making recovery easier. It comes either in pill form (ReVia, Depade), taken once a day; or in an injectable form (Vivitrol), administered monthly. Patients must not have any illegal opioids or opioid medication in their system for at least 7-10 days before starting naltrexone (this includes methadone, so if youâre switching from methadone to naltrexone, you must wait until your system is clear).

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.
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.
The relationship between the counselor and the patient is of great significance, as they work to tailor the treatment program to the patientâs specific needs. At Recovery Services of New Mexico they understand that all patients are different and will need individualized treatment in order to reach the common goal of freedom from opioid addiction. In addition, the counselor serves as a liaison to the patientâs Medical Doctor, and works with them to tailor the treatment program so that it is effective, safe, and personal.
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.
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.
Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person's mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.
Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.
In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.
