Baton Rouge Comprehensive Treatment Center supplies top-notch medication assisted treatment for individuals aged 18 and older who are battling addictions to opioids.

Our center offers the all-encompassing care that has enabled countless men and women to achieve recovery by providing them with medications and other interventions that have yielded truly positive outcomes. We are committed to providing the below listed safe and effective medications, of which can be included into a patient’s comprehensive treatment plan:

Methadone: Methadone is a synthetic opioid medication that stops the onset of withdrawal symptoms and cravings, yet does not produce the high that other opioids do. Methadone is classified as an opioid agonist and can help individuals leave their opioid addictions in the past.

Subutex: With buprenorphine as its primary ingredient, Subutex is able to decrease withdrawal symptoms and cravings by stopping the effects that opioids cause on the brain. Subutex is a partial opioid agonist-antagonist.

Suboxone: Suboxone is comprised of two ingredients, buprenorphine and naloxone, and works to lessen the intensity of withdrawal symptoms as well as stops cravings for continued use. Should a person attempt to abuse this medication or another substance, withdrawal symptoms will occur.

Vivitrol: Vivitrol is an injectable medication used in the treatment of opioid addiction. Containing naltrexone, Vivitrol is a non-narcotic, non-addictive medication that is administered once monthly to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms.

The medication that is chosen for each patient, as well as the appropriate dosage required, will be determined based on his or her needs throughout treatment. These medications and their dosages can also be altered to continue to meet a patient’s needs as treatment progresses.

In addition, Baton Rouge Comprehensive Treatment Center supplies a number of services that help support patients who are obtaining medication assisted treatment that includes Subutex, Suboxone, Vivitrol, or methadone. The team of certified medical professionals and addictions specialists, which include doctors, counselors, and nurses, is devoted to providing top-of-the-line care to each patient who comes through our doors. The services that we offer have helped numerous patients regain control of their lives and defeat opioid addiction. These services include:

* Individual therapy sessions are made available to patients to help them work through their emotions and feelings surrounding their achievements and setbacks in recovery. Patients meet with a counselor in a private setting and receive the individual attention needed to overcome the obstacles they are facing during the therapeutic process.

* Group therapy sessions are led by trained addiction counselors who help patients obtain support from other patients. Patients are encouraged to share their experiences in group therapy so that they can offer insight to one another.

By obtaining medication assisted treatment that involves the use of other treatment modalities, men and women can begin creating revitalized lives that are free from the abuse of opioids.
