Northeast Massachusetts Comprehensive Treatment Centers, a leader in the provision of medication assisted treatment, supplies care for men and women aged 18 and older who are battling addictions to substances such as heroin.

Recognizing the importance of providing services that can help these afflicted individuals recover, our centers offer the following proven-effective medications that can be included into a patient’s personalized treatment plan:

Methadone: Methadone is a synthetic medication that stops withdrawal symptoms and cravings in their tracks, though does not cause patients to develop a mind-altering high. This medication is an opioid agonist that can safely wean a patient off of opioids.

Subutex: Subutex contains buprenorphine as its primary ingredient, and is able to curb cravings and calm withdrawal symptoms by stopping the effects of opioids within a person’s brain. Subutex is classified as a partial opioid agonist-antagonist.

Suboxone: Suboxone, like Subutex, contains buprenorphine. However it also contains naloxone, as well. This medication is capable of diminishing cravings and withdrawal symptoms, but also brings about withdrawal symptoms if it is abused on its own or with other substances.

The specific medication that is recommended, along with the appropriate dosage, will be based on the personal treatment needs of the patient. Each of these medications can be adjusted during treatment if need be.

In addition, Northeast Massachusetts Comprehensive Treatment Centers supply a variety of services created solely to support patients who are obtaining medication assisted treatment that includes methadone, Subutex, or Suboxone. Our skilled team of professionals and addictions specialists, which includes nurses, doctors, and counselors, is devoted to providing top-notch treatment to each patient who is under our care. Below are the services that we provide that have allowed patients to defeat opioid addictions:

  • Individual therapy sessions are made available so patients can comb through their feelings, emotions, thoughts, and recovery achievements and obstacles with a counselor in a one-on-one setting.
  • Group therapy sessions are conducted by addiction counselors, and are capable of providing an environment of support and guidance that comes from the inclusion of other individuals who are facing similar challenges.

By obtaining medication assisted treatment that includes additional methods of care at Northeast Massachusetts Comprehensive Treatment Centers, patients can begin developing a life that is no longer controlled by opioid addiction.
