OUR SERVICES

We Provide Medication-Assisted Treatment As Well As Counseling Services

SUBOXONE

We provide treatment for opioid dependence and addiction with a medication called Suboxone, which contains Buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is the active part of the medication and is considered a “partial opioid agonist.” This simply means that it produces a milder form of the opioid effect (as compared to other opioids, which are “full agonists” and produce a much stronger effect.)

The advantage of using Suboxone (Buprenorphine/naloxone) is that it fills the brain’s opioid receptors without producing the “high” that other opioids produce. Thus, the potential for abuse is much less. In the meantime, it provides excellent relief from withdrawal symptoms and cravings, making it very effective in getting patients off other opioids.

Another advantage of Suboxone is that it actually binds much more strongly to the brain’s opioid receptors than any of the other opioids do. Thus, it essentially blocks the other opioids from working, and takes away the incentive to use them.

VIVITROL

Vivitrol is an injectable form of naltrexone, which is a pure opioid blocker. It covers the opioid receptors in the brain, preventing any opioids from binding to those receptors. Essentially, this means that opioids cannot exert any effect even if they are used. This takes away the incentive to use opioid drugs.

Oral naltrexone has the same effect. However, the long-term problem with oral naltrexone is that it must be taken daily in order to continue its benefit as the effect only lasts for a day or so. On the other hand, the injectable naltrexone (Vivitrol), lasts for a whole month!

Vivitrol is only appropriate for those patients who have successfully managed to discontinue all opioids, including Suboxone, for at least 7-10 days (or 14 days if coming off of Methadone.)

COUNSELING

Addiction is a complex condition with wide-ranging consequences. It affects every aspect of a patient’s life, from physical health to mental well-being. It also disrupts life in many ways, including more stress, poor self-esteem, increased depression and anxiety, broken relationships with friends and family, to name a few. Due to all of this, there is simply no way that a medication by itself can help patients adequately fight addiction.

This is where counseling comes in. At Medtriq Treatment Services, we believe that counseling is an integral part of addiction treatment because it can help with the mental health issues that often prove to be the biggest obstacles in the recovery process.

Our counselors are available to help you with a broad range of issues, and are invaluable in helping you gain back the control over your life that you have lost to drugs.

OUR TREATMENT PROCESS

Intake

Our treatment process begins with a thorough intake appointment during which we gather your medical and addiction history. You will then be evaluated by a physician. Most patients are prescribed Suboxone on the same appointment as long as there are no contraindications to it.

If you are completely off of opioids, you may be a good candidate for Vivitrol.

Follow-Up

Your subsequent appointments are designed to assess how effectively the medication is working for you. We also constantly assess any barriers or challenges that you may be facing which are hindering your recovery, and help you get past them.

Counseling

After you settle in with your initial treatment, we arrange counseling services for you so that you may gather additional tools that can help in your recovery.
