Medication-Assisted Treatment

CenterPointe’s Medication-assisted Treatment for opiate addiction provides detoxification and management through our Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) for half day or evening treatment, and Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP) for full day outpatient treatment.  The benefits of medication-assisted treatment include:

  • Reduces symptoms of withdrawal and cravings
  • Reduces the drug-induces highs & lows and frees the individual from thinking about drugs all the time
  • Provides an opportunity to focus on lifestyle changes that lead to health living

The medication-assisted treatment team is led by a physician who provides an evaluation of each individual’s treatment needs and supervises their medication prescriptions. Medications include buprenorphine (Suboxone) and naltrexone (Vivatrol). Through a combination of therapy groups and medical intervention/monitoring, individuals learn techniques to manage withdrawal symptoms, discontinue their opiate use and maintain lives of recovery.
