Medication-Assisted Treatment at BAART Visalia

Medication-assisted treatment is evidence-based and has been proven to be one of the safest and most effective methods to treat opioid addiction. With the use of medications like methadone and buprenorphine or Suboxone®, people who are addicted to medications such as OxyContin, Hydrocodone, and illicit opioids such as heroin can escape the discomfort of withdrawal. For many drug users, the occurrence of painful withdrawal symptoms pushes them to continue to use opioids, causing their addiction to spiral out of control quickly. With MAT the withdrawal symptoms can be lessened for a period of 24 to 36 hours per treatment.

Methadone and buprenorphine maintenance is overseen by trained medical professionals and doctors who will help each patient determine the dosage required to help them gradually reduce the body’s dependency on opioids. With daily trips to the methadone clinic, patients feel accountable for their recovery process and are engaging with staff and nurses to make sure all of their treatment needs are being met. With time, privileges can be earned, and some patients are able to take medication home to dispense themselves instead of traveling to the clinic daily.

Buprenorphine and buprenorphine compounds such as Suboxone® may be taken in clinic or offered by prescription at BAART Visalia. Each patient’s needs are unique, and the determination of the program that is the best fit will be made with a patient’s counselor and medical provider.

Substance Use Counseling at BAART

While medications treat the chemical side of addiction, there also needs to be attention focused on other dimensions of opioid use disorder that include counseling. Patients at BAART clinics work with trained and empathetic drug counselors and therapists who are able to help patients focus inward and work out past traumas or identify potential mental health issues that are fueling addiction and other unhealthy behaviors. MAT has been proven to be best for long-term recovery when it is combined with counseling, especially with extra emphasis on relapse prevention tools.

Medication-Assisted Treatment & Pregnancy

For women who are pregnant and need to begin a treatment program or who become pregnant while on methadone or buprenorphine, the BAART team works closely with their physician or OBGYN to ensure that treatment decisions are made with the health of mother and baby in mind. These specialized pregnancy treatment resources are a part of our overall focus on patient health that includes STD screening and referrals out to physicians as needed to address the health concerns that may come with long-term active addiction.
