MEDICATIONS OFFERED AT OUR VIRGINIA CLINICS
Our Virginia centers offer Suboxone for those facing opioid use disorders. This medication is made up of buprenorphine and naloxone, which work together to ease withdrawal symptoms as well as curb cravings. Suboxone works by blocking the effects of opioids, making their use less tempting. Through the use of Suboxone, it’s possible to spend more time focusing on aspects of treatment like therapy and counseling.
Naltrexone can help those working to overcome opioid and alcohol addiction by curbing cravings and blocking the effects of these substances. Oral naltrexone is not habit-forming and can be taken every two to three days to make it easier for patients to schedule visits to our medication assisted treatment clinics.
Vivitrol can be used in the treatment of both alcohol and opioid addiction. It prevents relapse and lasts longer than other medications. While the use of Vivitrol isn’t recommended until an individual is stable, once they’ve reached this point, they can use Vivitrol safely. Each injection of Vivitrol lasts for up to 30 days. If Vivitrol is right for you, the BrightView team can add this medication to your customized treatment plan.
Methadone is a medication that can help those facing opioid addiction avoid relapse and painful withdrawal symptoms. Methadone stabilizes dopamine production and is especially useful during withdrawal. Since methadone is an opioid, it is only available under the supervision of a clinician.
Methadone is currently only available in our Chesapeake center.
