Anchorage Treatment Solutions provides individuals, aged 18 and older, with top-notch medication assisted treatment for opioid addiction. Through the use of the following prescription medications, patients are able to come to know a life that is free from physical aspects of opioid addiction:
Methadone: A safe option to aid patients in weaning off of opioids, methadone works by preventing individuals from experiencing cravings for continued opioid use while also eliminating the symptoms of withdrawal. Since patients will not experience a euphoric high while taking methadone, they will be able to play an active role in daily obligations, as well as in their treatment.
Subutex: Subutex is a partial opioid agonist-antagonist that includes buprenorphine as its active ingredient. This medication eliminates the symptoms of withdrawal and blocks the effects of opioids within a patient’s brain. Subutex is also effective in keeping cravings for continued opioid use at bay.
Suboxone: Including both naloxone and buprenorphine, Suboxone eliminates the symptoms of withdrawal while minimizing cravings for opioids.
By working closely with our staff of physicians, nurses, and counselors, patients will be able to determine the appropriate medication and dosage needed based on their individual treatment needs.
In addition to the medications that are prescribed at our center, Anchorage Treatment Solutions provides patients with the opportunity to take part in the following therapeutic interventions in order to address and treat the underlying causes of their addictive behaviors:
- Individual therapy sessions provide patients with the opportunity to work one-on-one with a qualified counselor in order to work through the emotions and behaviors that may have led them to abusing opioids in the first place. These sessions provide patients with support and guidance in an extremely safe environment
- Group counseling sessions are counselor-led sessions that bring patients together to openly discuss a variety of topics in order to aid patients in progressing in treatment. These sessions also allow patients to provide each other with support and encouragement throughout the course of treatment
When individuals come to Anchorage Treatment Solutions, they are entering into a partnership with our team of dedicated professionals who understand the struggles associated with addiction. We are here to provide you or someone you love with the support, treatment, encouragement, and guidance that is necessary in order to successfully achieve lasting recovery.
