Detoxification means ridding the body of drugs or alcohol and managing withdrawal. Some patients will need to be cared for in a hospital or drug-and-alcohol facility for detox, while others can be managed as outpatients.
WE OFFER FOLLOWING SERVICES :
Aftercare and Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)
Once detoxification is complete, many patients still need help in avoiding the abused substance. Avoiding, or not using the abused substance at all, is called abstinence.Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) can help some patients avoid, or abstain from, drugs or alcohol. MAT involves using prescribed medication to help you avoid using the abused drugs or alcohol and makes it more likely that you will be able to abstain from the abused substance. We can provide MAT and other addiction services for patients after their inpatient rehab or non-hospital or hospital-based inpatient detoxification at any facility.MAT can be provided during treatment for opioid (synthetic and/or heroin), alcohol, nicotine, and other dependence.
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for Opioid Use Disorder
Buprenorphine helps patients with opioid dependence by preventing withdrawal symptoms. It works best for patients who do not have other substance abuse issues. Buprenorphine is taken once a day as a pill that you place under the tongue and let completely dissolve. Additional information about buprenorphine can be found here: http://www.samhsa.gov/medication-assisted-treatment/treatment/buprenorphine.Naltrexone blocks the part of the brain that causes you to feel high and lessens the cravings for opioids.
