BAART Programs LaPlace, LA
For over 40 years, the addiction specialists at BAART Programs have served communities nationwide by helping people overcome opioid addiction. At BAART Programs in LaPlace, Louisiana, formerly Choices of Louisiana, we provide proven medication-assisted treatment (MAT) as well as compassionate counseling and recovery services in our intensive outpatient program.
Our opioid addiction treatment center is conveniently located near Baton Rouge and New Orleans, representing our commitment to improving the quality and accessibility of addiction treatment to individuals in Louisiana and across the country.
Medication-Assisted Treatment in LaPlace
MAT using prescription methadone is considered the benchmark for quality opioid addiction treatment. Other medications, such as buprenorphine and Suboxone®, are also proven MAT options. BAART LaPlace uses methadone and other treatment options to create an individualized addiction treatment program based on your needs. These medications address the side effects and cravings of withdrawal without creating feelings of euphoria or a “high.”
Your medical provider and counselor at BAART LaPlace will find the best medication based on your needs. Throughout your participation in our MAT program, we carefully monitor your health to ensure your condition stabilizes. MAT also addresses withdrawal symptoms so you can focus your energy on your long-term recovery goals.
The stabilization phase of your MAT treatment involves daily visits to our methadone clinic to receive medication. These visits also provide structure and accountability, both of which are crucial in early recovery. Over time, however, you may earn take-home medication. While this means less frequent visits to our clinic, you will still receive counseling services, medical supervision and other essential resources.
While MAT helps with the physical side of drug addiction, the emotional and mental health impact of this disease still needs to be addressed. Counseling services at BAART LaPlace are a critical component of your comprehensive treatment plan.
With the help of a trusted counselor, you can begin to understand the underlying causes of your drug use, address your general health and wellness needs, and learn important stress management tools. Counseling can also help you define your treatment goals, rebuild close relationships with loved ones, and regain control of your life.
