BAART Programs Newport
The BAART Newport facility aims to provide quality individualized treatment plans for people with opioid use disorder using effective, evidence-based services and FDA-approved medications. The compassionate and knowledgeable staff at BAART Newport knows that a whole-patient approach to treating addiction is essential, which is why every patient receiving medication-assisted treatment (MAT) also speaks with a licensed substance use counselor while having access to many more programs that are available.
Medication-Assisted Treatment at BAART Newport
With the assistance of medicines like methadone and buprenorphine, more commonly known as Suboxone®, and Vivitrol®, many people with substance use disorder have been able to achieve recovery. MAT is the most effective way for patients to ward off withdrawal symptoms, making it easier to focus on other aspects of their addiction. Methadone is dispensed daily at the clinic, while buprenorphine and Suboxone® are offered in clinic and by prescription. Every patient’s dosage is monitored by a medical provider to ensure the right amount is reached for the medicine to provide the patient with therapeutic effects for 24 to 36 hours after each treatment. While every patient’s experience will be different, if the provider feels the patient is ready, they may work together to slowly taper down the dosage until the patient discontinues use. This may not be the case for every patient as each person who is enrolled in the MAT program will be treated based on their use and health history and future goals in regards to recovery.
Substance Use Disorder Counseling at BAART Newport
Addiction is multifaceted, meaning it needs to be approached from many different angles for the treatment to be successful. BAART recognizes that MAT treats the chemical side of addiction, but the mental and behavioral sides simply cannot be neglected. Every patient at BAART will visit with a substance use disorder counselor to touch on things in their life that may have lead them to misuse drugs in the past. By uncovering past traumas and patterns of behavior, counselors can help patients obtain a better understanding of their addiction. Once patients are able to see all of the various things that may have led them to their substance misuse, they become ready to heal and continue on their journey towards recovery. Counselors are also helpful in goal-setting and building coping mechanisms that can help patients reconstruct their lives to suit a future that is free of opioid addiction.
There are also group counseling sessions available at BAART Newport where patients can share their experiences with like-minded peers in a comfortable and judgment-free setting. Group counseling helps patients deal with the guilt and shame they may feel by seeing that they are not alone and that there are others who understand. They can also work on relearning how to socialize and connecting with people in a drug-free setting.
