Allied Health Services of Medford
Allied Health Services Medford, a top provider of medication-assisted treatment for adults aged 18 or older, understands that providing specialized services for individuals looking to overcome addictions to opioids such as morphine, heroin, or prescription painkillers is incredibly important. Therefore, at our treatment center, we supply medications that have proven to be effective in treating opioid addictions. The medications that might be included in an individual’s unique treatment plan can include:
Methadone: Methadone, an opioid agonist, is a synthetic medication that stops withdrawal symptoms and nagging drug cravings. However, unlike other opioids, it does not produce a high. As a result, methadone can successfully help an individual wean off of opioids.
Subutex: Subutex is a partial opioid agonist-antagonist, and contains buprenorphine as its primary ingredient. This medication stops the effects of opioids on an individual’s brain.
Suboxone: Like other medications, Suboxone helps decrease drug cravings and withdrawal symptoms. This medication is comprised of both buprenorphine and naloxone. Should Suboxone (or other opioids) be abused, withdrawal symptoms will occur.
