BAART Programs Port Angeles
BAART Port Angeles offers evidence-based medication-assisted treatment for opioid use disorder along with other services like counseling, case management, and referrals to community resources that may help patients struggling with addiction. The clinical professionals at BAART are empathetic and experienced, aiming to provide every patient with individualized addiction treatment in a judgment-free atmosphere. Whether the patient is misusing prescription opioids such as OxyContin, Hydrocodone, or illicit opioids such as heroin, the medication-assisted treatment options available like methadone and buprenorphine, or more commonly known as Suboxone ®, are reliable and safe under the supervision of a medical provider.
Buprenorphine and Methadone Treatment in Port Angeles
MAT, or medication-assisted treatment, to be the safest and most effective approach for treating opioid addiction. The FDA-approved medicines used in MAT, methadone, buprenorphine and Suboxone®, help prevent the uncomfortable symptoms of opioid withdrawal for 24 to 36 hours per treatment. With the help of a provider, patients will reach a dosage that allows them to function without the withdrawal effects and focus their attention to other aspects of their addiction. Over time, if advised by their provider, they are able to slowly lessen their use of the medication. Each patient will experience a different process that is tailored to their history of use and goals for recovery.
This form of methadone maintenance requires patients to visit the methadone clinic daily to receive their medicine, which is also a helpful way to create structure during the treatment process. However, privileges may be earned with time, and medical providers can allow patients to take their medicine home, or with a prescription depending on the medication, to take as directed.
Individual and Group Counseling
Medication works to address the body’s physical addiction to opioids, but without counseling and a whole-patient approach, recovery is much harder to achieve. The professionals at BAART understand that addiction is multi-dimensional and provide patients with a way to touch on the behavioral and psychological effects of opioid use disorder. The drug counselors at BAART Port Angeles provide patients with goal setting guidelines, beneficial coping tools, and relapse prevention education to learn about triggers and other facets of staying on their treatment path. By having trained counselors by their sides, patients can also discuss their previous traumas or behaviors that may have fueled their addictions and give them referrals to mental health services for further assessment if needed.
Group sessions are available at Port Angeles and provide a safe and cathartic environment for patients in treatment to discuss their struggles and successes with their peers. During these group sessions, patients are encouraged to share their stories, worries, and achievements while exchanging support for and with other patients.
