BAART Programs St. Johnsbury

BAART St. Johnsbury specializes in individualized medication-assisted treatment (MAT) services for individuals suffering from Opioid Use Disorder, more commonly opioid addiction. With a nationwide network of facilities, and over 40 years of combined experience in opioid treatment and recovery services, BAART medical providers, nurses, and counselors have the skill, dedication, and experience required to provide high quality addiction treatment with a caring, patient-focused approach.

The BAART Approach to Medication-Assisted Treatment

At BAART St. Johnsbury we offer MAT utilizing both methadone, buprenorphine or Suboxone® and Vivitrol®.

Methadone is an opioid which has been used in the treatment of opioid addiction for more than 50 years. As a full opioid agonist, it is effective in addressing the symptoms of withdrawal, offering hope to patients who have used very high doses of illicit heroin and fentanyl in addition to other prescription opioid drugs. When used in conjunction with counseling and supportive recovery services, Methadone is the gold standard of opioid addiction treatment. A therapeutic dose of methadone helps patients control withdrawal symptoms as well as cravings and daily visits provide much needed structure in early recovery.

Since being approved for clinical use in 2002, buprenorphine has been shown to be extremely effective in the treatment of opioid addiction. As a partial opioid agonist, it offers the same withdrawal symptom relief, but with a ceiling effect that minimizes it’s potential for misuse. Buprenorphine and buprenorphine compounds, most commonly known as Suboxone®, is offered in clinic and by prescription. The program and specific medication which is right for each patient will be recommended by a medical provider in collaboration with the patient and their counselor.

Each patient’s medication, dose and progress are medically supervised, making MAT a safe, effective and customizable option for addiction treatment.

Counseling & BAART MAT

In addition to MAT, BAART also assists patients address the psychological challenges of addiction. Treatment plans are developed and tailored to your individual requirements by our team of experienced counselors. Counselors work with their patients determining their underlying triggers for addiction and how best to address them. Counselors will also aid in developing health coping mechanisms, strategies for re-establishing a strong social support structure and setting goals for short and long-term recovery. They are a safe place to receive the support and accountability needed during recovery.

There are also group counseling sessions and other support staff available at BAART St. Johnsbury. In a group setting, patients can share their experiences with others who have had similar experiences 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.

Available groups include:

  • Mindfulness
  • Parenting
  • Relapse Prevention
  • Men’s & Women’s Groups

Employment consultants are available to help our patients prepare to obtain and sustain employment. Local peer supports, also known as Recovery Coaches, are available in clinic each week to help patients prepare for the various challenges they may face in recovery and feel a sense of community that they may lean on as they rebuild their lives.
