Medication-Assisted Treatment with Methadone in St. Albans

Though patients are required to visit the methadone clinic daily for their dosages, they may eventually earn the privilege to take home their medication for weekly and even monthly self-dispensing. The length of methadone treatment varies from patient to patient as some may require treatments from months or years depending on their progress. This means of addressing an opioid use disorder is much more effective in patients than others and has a higher success rate of patients managing long-term recovery.

In the 1960s, doctors first used the methadone to treat opioid dependence and withdrawal side-effects successfully. Since then, methadone and buprenorphine (Suboxone®) have become the safest and most effective FDA-approved opioid addiction treatment options available. Methadone is what is called a full agonist opioid which means that the effects of the drug are present enough to help people who are regularly taking high doses of illicit or prescription opioids. It also greatly reduces withdrawal symptoms for 24 to 36 hours per treatment. Despite common misconceptions, methadone isn’t a medication that replaces a drug addiction. It works by gradually reducing the body’s dosage tolerance until the patient can discontinue the medication.

Drug Counseling Program with MAT

To help someone overcome their substance use disorder it is recommended that they receive comprehensive services, including mental and behavioral health support. While MAT addresses the physical effects of addiction and withdrawal, significantly reducing withdrawal symptoms, cravings, and urges, individual counseling and possibly group counseling should be involved as well. Empathetic and experienced counselors at BAART facilities are able to speak with patients about past traumas or underlying mental health issues that may be co-occurring with their addiction. There is strong evidence that links mental health and addiction, as they tend to often go hand-in-hand. With the counseling available at our facilities, patients are given individualized and customized care to help ensure their medication-assisted treatment program is as healing as possible.
