Sandhills Comprehensive Treatment Centers is a network of outpatient treatment providers for individuals, aged 18 and older, who are struggling with an addiction to opioids. Our centers provide the following medications to be used within our individualized medication assisted treatment plans:
Suboxone: Suboxone is given to lower withdrawal symptoms as well as lessen cravings. Utilizing naloxone and buprenorphine as its active ingredients, Suboxone can trigger symptoms of withdrawal should a patient attempt to use an opioid during medication assisted treatment.
Vivitrol: Vivitrol is a non-narcotic, non-addictive, injectable medication that is given to patients to help aid in the withdrawal process. By utilizing naltrexone as its main component, Vivitrol lessens opioid cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
Methadone: Methadone is an opioid agonist that is used to help patients wean off of opioids. Since methadone is a synthetic drug that ceases cravings and withdrawal symptoms, patients are able to take it without experiencing the euphoric high that they are used to experiencing while on opioids.
Subutex: Subutex utilizes buprenorphine as its active ingredient to diminish withdrawal symptoms, as well as lessen cravings. Subutex is a partial opioid agonist-antagonist that works by hindering the effects of opioids within a patient’s brain.
The specific medication prescribed, as well as the appropriate dosage given, will vary depending on the needs of each individual patient. Medications can be altered and changed during the course of treatment in order to achieve the best possible fit.
Sandhills Comprehensive Treatment Centers provides patients with numerous services to support them during their medication assisted treatment program. The dedicated team of physicians, nurses, and counselors provide patients with compassionate, individualized care throughout the entire treatment process. On top of medication assisted treatment, the following therapeutic interventions are used to aid patients in successfully achieving sobriety:
- Individual therapy sessions are available for patients to openly discuss their feelings, emotions, and treatment progress in the safety of a one-on-one therapeutic environment.
- Group therapy sessions are counselor-led sessions that provide patients with the opportunity to come together with other patients who truly understand the struggles associated with addiction. Patients are able to gain support and insight from others while also gaining information from a certified addiction counselor.
Sandhills Comprehensive Treatment Centers believe that, in order for individuals to break free from the cycle of addiction, patients must combine medication assisted treatment with therapeutic interventions in order to tackle the emotional and physical components of addiction. Our compassionate and highly trained team is here to help you achieve sobriety through a comprehensive approach.
