BAART Programs Breaux Bridge, LA
For more than 15 years the addiction specialists at BAART Programs Breaux Bridge, formerly ORTCA, have provided compassionate outpatient, opioid addiction treatment. The program includes proven medications including methadone, buprenorphine and Suboxone®, as well as counseling and recovery services. BAART Programs began in California more than 40 years ago with the mission of improving the quality and accessibility of evidence-based opioid addiction treatment nationwide.
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) in Breaux Bridge
Medication-assisted treatment with methadone is the benchmark for effective treatment of opioid addiction. The medication controls the effects of withdrawals and cravings that often lead to relapse. More recently, buprenorphine and Suboxone® have been found to provide these benefits as well, providing you with more options for individualized treatment. All MAT medications provide the management of withdrawal symptoms, but at the correct dose, do not provide a “high” or feeling of euphoria.
In an MAT program, patients work with a medical provider and their counselor to determine the best medication for their needs and find a therapeutic dose of that medication under careful supervision. Once you are stabilized on a therapeutic dose of medication, you’ll be able to focus on the elements of long-term recovery, most important of which is individual counseling with a BAART substance use counselor.
In the stabilization phase of treatment, patients visit the clinic daily to receive medication. Daily visits provide accountability and structure that is often needed early in recovery. Over time, it is possible to earn take-home medication which requires less frequent visits to the treatment facility, but still offers medical supervision, counseling and other services.
BAART Breaux Bridge Counseling Services
When the physical symptoms of opioid use are present, it is challenging for patients to recognize the causes of their drug use, address general health and wellness needs or learn and implement healthy stress management tools. All of these are essential parts of a comprehensive treatment plan that can be addressed when you build a trusting relationship with your counselor.
Individual counseling sessions offer our patients the opportunity to address these key areas and set goals for treatment to begin the process of rebuilding relationships and restoring their lives.
