A path to recovery differs for each individual, but most find that a combination of behavioral health services (such as individual, group, and family therapy) along with medication (Buprenorphine, Subutex, Suboxone, Methadone, or Vivitrol) results in the most success for long-term recovery. Taking medication for opioid addiction is like taking medication to control heart disease or diabetes. It is NOT the same as substituting one addictive drug for another. Used properly, the medication does NOT create a new addiction. It helps you manage your addiction so that the benefits of recovery can be maintained.

  1. Methadone: Methadone is a long-acting opioid agonist that helps reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings without producing euphoria. It's typically administered in specialized clinics under strict supervision.

  2. Buprenorphine: Buprenorphine is a partial opioid agonist that works by binding to the same receptors as opioids, but with less intensity. It helps alleviate cravings and withdrawal symptoms while reducing the risk of misuse and overdose.

  3. Naltrexone: Naltrexone is an opioid antagonist that blocks the effects of opioids in the brain. It's available in both oral and injectable forms and is used to prevent relapse by blocking the rewarding effects of opioids.  Modes of Treatment
