Advocate Recovery Center is now offering outpatient treatment for opiate addiction in Cypress, Texas. Our American Board of Addiction Medicine certified doctors are committed to creating an individualized treatment plan for each patient to help him/ her overcome opiate addiction. Medication-assisted treatment in combination with counseling and behavioral therapy is a proven approach to treating opiate addiction.
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), “A 2008 report by the Coalition of Against Insurance Fraud estimates that the abuse of opioid analgesics results in more than $72 million in medical costs alone each year. This is comparable to costs related to other chronic diseases such as asthma and HIV.” Prescription misuse is a growing problem in America that has received considerable publicity as a result of recent celebrity deaths. In response, President Obama’s administration has taken action to address this problem with increased funding and access to medications such as Buprenorphine therapy.
The doctors at Advocate Recovery Center are qualified to use Buprenorphine therapy to help relieve withdrawal symptoms such as craving, sweating, muscle aches, anxiety and general flu like conditions. Some brand name Buprenorphine/Naloxone medications are Suboxone, Bunavail and Zubsolv. Buprenorphine is itself an opioid, but is different from other opioids in that it is a partial agonist. This means that it provides less euphoria/ physical dependence, has a lower potential for misuse and has a milder withdrawal profile. Treatment with Buprenorphine can suppress symptoms of opioid withdrawal, decrease cravings, reduce illicit opioid use, block the effects of other opioids and help patients stay in treatment.
Advocate Recovery Center’s multiple locations make outpatient appointments easy as an option for medicated opiate withdrawal assistance. For more information about outpatient treatment please visit http://www.advocaterc.com or call us at 713-475-8686
