Milwaukee Comprehensive Treatment Centers, a primary provider of medication assisted treatment for adults ages 18 and older, offers services that can help an individual overcome an addiction to opioids, such as heroin or prescription painkillers. These centers utilize effective medications, such as those listed below:

Methadone: A synthetic medication that curbs drug cravings and decreases the intensity of withdrawal symptoms, but does not cause the same high that other opioids like heroin or morphine do. Because of this, methadone is classified as an opioid agonist and is effective in treating opioid addictions.

Subutex: Containing one primary ingredient, buprenorphine, Subutex is effective in stopping the effects of opioids on the brain, which helps reduce withdrawal symptoms and drug cravings. Subutex is a partial opioid agonist-antagonist.

Suboxone: Like Subutex, Suboxone contains buprenorphine, however, it also contains naloxone. Both substances work together to allow Suboxone to be effective in ceasing withdrawal symptoms and cravings. However, if an individual uses other opioids while taking Suboxone, he or she will experience withdrawal symptoms.

The medication that is chosen for each patient, as well as the recommended dosage that is prescribed, will be made based on the patients needs. A qualified physician can also adjust these medications and dosages during the course of treatment, should the need to do so arise.

Milwaukee Comprehensive Treatment Centers offers a variety of different services that support patients who receive medications like methadone, Subutex, or Suboxone. Our team of experienced professionals and specialists include counselors, doctors, and nurses who are devoted to providing top-notch care for each and every one of our patients. Below are some of the therapeutic services that we provide for those who come to us looking to move past an addiction to opioids:

  • Individual therapy sessions where patients can work one-on-one with a counselor to discuss and sort through emotions, thoughts, feelings, recovery successes, and recovery setbacks
  • Group therapy sessions where patients join certified counselors and other patients to gain support and guidance

Through obtaining medication assisted treatment that includes a therapeutic component, patients at Milwaukee Comprehensive Treatment Centers can begin shedding a past that is filled with opioid addiction and begin building a future that is promising and drug-free.
