Medically Driven Treatment

Opioids change how the brain works. Regardless of the reason for using mind-altering substances, to achieve an intense euphoria, to escape, or to treat pain, its repeated use alters brain chemistry. Abruptly stopping opioids is typically associated with several symptoms, like sweating, nervousness, anxiety, sleeplessness, and cramping.

Rapidly stopping substances or detoxing, is usually accompanied by intense and unpleasant symptoms which cause “quitting” to be postponed.

Over time, cravings become non-stop, and the need for an ever-increasing dose is needed to achieve the same affect.

At Salubre Care, we utilize opioid-based medication assistance to provide rapid relief of these withdrawal symptoms as well as the cravings for additional opioids. Based upon your individual medical needs and history, we select the medication which is safest and most beneficial to your recovery. Some of the medical approaches we utilize include buprenorphine (Suboxone®, Zubsolv®, Subutex®, Sublocade®), naltrexone (Vivitrol®), disulfiram (Antabuse®), acamprosate (Cameral®), topiramate, bupropion (Zyban®), and varenicline (Chantix®).

Over time, in the absence of opioids and other mind-altering substances, one can regain the ability to feel joy. Instead of each waking moment being ruled by obtaining drugs, or recovering from them, you gain the ability to pursue a fulfilling life. Each and every day of sobriety brings you one step closer to precious and uplifting rewards – For example: the ability to maintain a job, be with your children, restore once broken relationships.

When you are ready to start your recovery journey, a combination of Medication Assisted Treatment, individual counseling and group therapy and can help you achieve that goal. We can help you through the difficult work of recovery, ease the withdrawal symptoms, and help control the cravings.
