At Medtriq, we believe that your path to recovery hinges on our partnership with you

Non Punitive Care

Recovery does not happen alone. We will partner with you in this journey and guide you through the difficult times. Our goal is to continually find ways to keep you moving in the right direction.

Patient-Centered Care

This is your recovery! We deeply understand that and will make sure that your interests are kept ahead of all else. Our success derives solely from your progress.

OUR SERVICES

Medtriq provides comprehensive services for treatment of substance use disorders

SUBOXONE | SUBUTEX (Buprenorphine)

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 very complex and multi-faceted condition with wide-ranging consequences. It affects every aspect of a patient’s health from physical symptoms to mental well-being. It also disrupts life in many excruciating ways causing more stress, poor self-esteem, increased depression and anxiety, broken relationships with friends and family, and inability to earn a living, to name a few. There is no way that a medication – even one as effective as Suboxone – can by itself help patients fight the scourge of addiction. Counseling plays a large role in recovery.

At Medtriq Treatment Services, we are taking a comprehensive approach to the treatment of addiction.  We strongly believe that counseling must be an integral part of any treatment plan, and that it must incorporate not just chemical dependency but also mental health. This is essential if patients are to find long-lasting solutions to the biggest barriers in their recovery process.

We have partnered with multiple counseling agencies in the locations where our clinics are located in order to ensure that chemical dependency and mental health counseling are an integral part of our treatment process.

OUR TREATMENT PROCESS

INTAKE

Our treatment process begins with a thorough intake appointment during which we gather your medical and substance use history. You will then be evaluated by a physician or nurse practitioner specializing in the treatment of addictive disorders. Most patients are started on treatment the same day as their first appointment, as long as there are no contraindications to it.

If you are completely off of opioids, you may also 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 hampering your recovery, and come up with solutions to get you past them.

As you progress through treatment, we will put more time between your visits. We will also work with you to slowly taper your dose, if appropriate. Our goal is to educate and guide you on the taper process, and will never use it as a punitive measure or force taper on you when you don’t feel ready for it.

COUNSELING AND MENTAL HEALTH CARE

Once you have successfully started the medication-assisted treatment, you will also be guided on obtaining chemical dependency counseling and mental health care. These modalities of treatment are extremely valuable in long-term recovery. We are currently developing our own counseling and psychiatric care as well. These will be available soon!
