BAART Programs Alexandria, LA
Whether it’s an addiction to pain medication or an illicit substance, the nation’s opioid crisis impacts countless lives. However, recovery is possible at BAART Programs in Alexandria, Louisiana, formerly Choices of Louisiana. At our outpatient opioid addiction treatment facility, you will find evidence-based medication-assisted treatment (MAT) paired with compassionate counseling and recovery services.
After 40 years of serving those struggling with addiction, BAART Programs continues to improve the quality and accessibility of treatment to individuals across the country.
Medication-Assisted Treatment in Alexandria
MAT using methadone has been the gold standard of opioid addiction treatment for decades. At our methadone clinic in Alexandria, Louisiana, we use this medication to help patients control the withdrawal symptoms and cravings that can lead to relapse. We also offer other proven medications — buprenorphine and Suboxone® — to ensure a fully individualized treatment program. These medications can help manage the side effects of withdrawal without feelings of euphoria or a “high.”
When you choose BAART Alexandria, you will work with a MAT medical provider and counselor to determine the best medication for your unique needs. These addiction specialists also provide careful supervision. MAT programs allow you to stabilize your condition so you can focus on your long-term recovery.
During the stabilization phase of your treatment, you will visit our clinic every day to receive medication. These daily visits also provide structure and accountability, two essential components in early recovery. Over time, some patients will earn take-home medication, meaning fewer visits to our facility. However, they still receive the benefits of counseling, medical supervision and our other services.
The main benefit of MAT is addressing the physical symptoms of opioid use so you can begin to recognize the causes of your drug use. As part of your comprehensive treatment plan, BAART Alexandria provides comprehensive counseling services.
Individual addiction counseling allows patients to address their general health and wellness needs and implement critical stress management tools to ensure future recovery success. Sessions also focus on setting goals for treatment, rebuilding relationships and restoring their lives.
As part of your opioid addiction recovery process, BAART Alexandria provides the resources, services and support you need to live a productive life. Our recovery services include:
- Addiction education.
- Overdose prevention education.
- Relapse prevention tools.
- Case management.
- Coordinated pregnancy treatment resources.
- Lab work.
- Referrals to outside health or social services resources, such as housing and employment.
