24 Hour Crisis Hotline:
Most treatment plans will include medication. The type of medication chosen depends on a number of factors, including the patient’s different situations and the treatment setting. Medications are used along with counseling and group therapy to provide a “whole-person” approach to recovery.
Every patient is different, and the right medication is found when the person feels normal, has little to no side effects, does not feel withdrawal, and has cravings under control.
When used correctly, and when the treatment plan is being followed, these medications can be taken safely for years
Any plans to stop taking a medication, change dosage, or switch medications should always be discussed with the clinician – this should be a shared decision, with all benefits and risks discussed and understood between both parties.
Patients will continue to see the clinician and participate in counseling and support groups based on the agreed upon treatment plan.
Relapse may occur as part of this chronic disease. If a patient relapses while using medication, the clinician will revise the treatment plan and treatment goals as needed.
Naltrexone works by blocking opioids from acting on the brain – this takes away the ability to get high from using opioids. This makes naltrexone a good option for preventing relapse.
