Whether you struggle with a heroin addiction or you find yourself dependent on prescription pain pills, opioid use disorder is a serious disease that requires prompt care once you’re ready to reach out for help. Opioid Treatment Programs (OTPs) offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT), a life-saving option for those struggling with opioid addiction. Yet, most OTP facilities are only open during the day.
At BAART Programs, we want to expand access so that people can receive treatment at any time. We are proud to offer 24-hour service at a few of our locations, ensuring on-demand treatment when you need it most.
All Day and All Night Opioid Treatment at BAART Programs
So, what is a 24-hour treatment program? Like all BAART Programs locations, our 24/7 facilities offer medication-assisted treatment, an evidence-based approach to opioid addiction that combines supervised medication use with addiction counseling and other community resources. MAT uses FDA-approved medications like methadone and buprenorphine to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms so that you can focus on developing recovery skills.
The main difference between our standard OTPs and our 24/7 treatment centers is access. These locations now allow admissions and dosing at all hours, meaning you can reach out the moment you’re ready to end your battle with opioid addiction — night or day. For some patients, this removes the barriers that may have prevented them from seeking help and allows them to commit to ongoing treatment.
Benefits of 24-Hour Treatment for Opioid Addiction
Why would you want to go to a clinic that offers a 24-hour treatment program? To put it simply — unlimited access. Opioid addiction is a powerful force, and finding the will to break free can be challenging. Our 24/7 treatment centers will work with you the moment you choose to seek help.
There are many other benefits our 24-hour programs provide, including:
- Flexibility: Whether you’re a busy professional, an active student or a working mom, it can be hard to balance treatment with your responsibilities. A 24-hour program has the flexibility to work with your schedule.
- Ease of referral: For patients coming from emergency rooms, prisons or other human service agencies, operating outside traditional hours allows you to start treatment immediately.
- Harm reduction: Expanded access to opioid treatment reduces the risk of relapsing or overdosing. The greatest cravings often hit in the middle of the night when most OTPs are closed. Nighttime hours ensure you have access to professional care when you’re most vulnerable.
