Additional Information about Medication Assisted Treatment
Addiction is a disease. When you find you have developed a habit, one that affects every aspect of your life, you need help. Although you may try to beat this dependency on your own, chances are you are finding it difficult to do. Drugs change the way your brain works, which is why many struggle in this situation. If you find you cannot overcome this addiction on your own, you may be in need of medication assisted addiction recovery options.
Methadone Treatment For An Opiate Addiction
Methadone remains the preferred treatment option for most opiate addicts, as this drug stabilizes your health while also reducing your use of the illicit drugs. This cost-effective treatment is safe, as it has no lasting effect on your mental capability, your employability, or your intelligence. In fact, you will find your reaction time, ability to learn and make complex decisions, and your environment are comparable to those who have never undergone this type of treatment.
What Can You Expect When Visiting the Clinic?
You may fear the unknown and worry that the treatment will be worse than the addiction. When you first visit the clinic, you’ll find a range of professionals working together to help you determine a treatment plan, and these professionals work with you throughout the program to make changes when needed. Depending on which clinic you choose, you’ll need to learn about their hours and fees. One thing you needn’t worry about is accreditation, as any clinic offering methadone treatment must be accredited with a minimum of one independent body. This makes it easier to find a methadone clinic without spending a great deal of time doing research.
During this initial appointment, you’ll likely be screened. You will be asked to discuss your addiction and work with the professionals to determine if the clinic is a good fit for you. Your history of opiate and other drug use will need to be shared at this time, and the screening counselor will provide more details about the program. Now is the time to ask any questions you may have about the treatment, your recovery, and more.
Admittance To The Program
If you are accepted into the program and wish to participate, you’ll need to go through a medical and clinical evaluation. During this evaluation, you’ll provide more information about your drug use and how it has impacted your life. The more information the professionals have, the easier it will be to create a tailored treatment plan. Co-occurring disorders must be shared at this time, as they can have an impact on your treatment, and you’ll undergo a physical exam and medical history to ensure you are a good candidate for medication assisted treatment with methadone.
How Will The Medication Be Administered?
Clinics providing medication assisted treatment set specific hours for the dispensing of methadone. Ask the clinic what these hours are, and ensure that you arrive during this time frame. Most clinics provide the medication in liquid form, and you must take it in the presence of a nurse. In addition, you may be asked to drink water to rinse after your medication. You’ll need to check in to receive your dose, and you may have appointments for urinalysis testing, counseling or other treatment protocols. On most days, however, you’ll be in and out in only minutes.
How Is The Proper Dose Determined?
Patients go through an induction period in which the correct dosage is determined. Most clinics start patients on a low dose and slowly increase it until the right dosage has been identified. This process may take several weeks, and you will need to be closely monitored to reduce the risk of overdose. Once this dosage has been determined and the clinic determines you are stable, you may be able to take the medication home so you don’t have to visit the clinic on a daily basis. This is determined on a case by case basis, but you will still be required to visit the clinic to obtain the medication and complete other portions of the treatment plan.
