Family and friends who don’t struggle with drug and alcohol abuse often do not understand your situation, your feelings, or your daily struggles — even if they are well-intentioned and want to help you. Connecting with others going through the same treatment and having similar histories of drug use can be life-changing for many who go through our outpatient programs.
Medication-Assisted Treatment in Colorado
For patients who struggle with opioid addiction, using drugs that function as weak opioid blockers can help these patients return to living a fully functional life without drugs. Though it may sound counterintuitive — or even risky — to give these patients more opioids, when performed correctly, this process can help them wean themselves off their drug of choice in a safe, medically supervised way. The medications we typically use to help our patients conquer their opioid addictions are:
Buprenorphine is a medication that functions as an opioid blocker, which means that it blocks the receptors in the brain that use opioids to create a “high” feeling. Patients who use these medications are unable to get high from their drug of choice because buprenorphine blocks the drug from attaching to the receptors
This medication works similarly to buprenorphine in that it simulates a weak opioid, blocks the opioid receptors, and prevents the euphoria and dependence patients typically experience when taking their drugs of choice. Ideally, it will reduce cravings over time and help promote sobriety.
Naltrexone is a medication, like buprenorphine and suboxone, that can be taken as a pill or injected to help you curb your cravings for an addictive substance. It’s FDA approved for the treatment of addictive disorders such as drug abuse and alcohol addiction.
Addiction Therapy and Counseling Services
Therapy is a good idea for anybody who is making a major life change. When you choose to quit taking an addictive substance, your brain, and body both undergo a major shift as you learn to live a new way. It’s best not to go through this phase of your life alone.
Whether you choose to participate in medication-assisted treatment or you prefer a behavioral approach, our licensed counselors who specialize in addiction can guide you through the process. You will learn new coping skills as you go through the recovery process, and you can rest assured that your counselors will work closely with your medical providers in order to ensure a comprehensive, integrated treatment plan.
