Our providers have experience treating a wide-range of opiate addiction. Whether you or a loved one is addicted to pain medication, an intravenous opiate, or a different opiate variation, we can administer medical support and assistance. Listed below are the medications and resources we use when treating opiate addictions:
The providers with Evans treat our patients with Suboxone, a medical aid that is commonly used to treat narcotic (opiate) addiction.
- Suboxone is a medication that is under the Buprenorphine family.
- Suboxone is an opioid that effectively activates the opioid receptors on nerve cells.
- Suboxone has a long half life (lasting effects), which is one reason why it’s so effective in treating opiate addiction.
- Suboxone evens out the opiate addiction so that there are no longer the highs and lows that are associated with short-term opioids, like heroin.
Among many other vital steps of detoxing, counseling is a crucial part of being treated for opiate addiction. It may seem difficult for you or a loved one who is struggling with an addiction to understand, but along with medication there needs to be a serious amount of attention and psychological support given to anyone who is trying to overcome an opiate addiction.
Evans providers are wholeheartedly invested in our patient’s recovery path. We are available to offer reliable support through the mental and emotional hardships that are associated with overcoming opiate dependence. Our medical treatments and mental health counseling are the keys to getting back a clean, productive life.
Evans Management providers will gladly be your ongoing support as you or a loved one undergo treatment. However, we want you to know that the help doesn’t stop here. There are many other resources available to individuals suffering with an opiate addiction within the Maine community. Check out the link below for a full list of meeting times:
