Denise struggled with alcohol and opioid painkiller addiction before starting treatment at Synergy Recovery Services. A combination of Buprenorphine (Suboxone) and IOP (Intensive Outpatient Program) treatment, along with tough love by her daughter is what helped her beat her addiction.
Incorporating a mixture of minerals, vitamins and nutrients to help people in detox complete the withdrawal process, Nutritionally Assisted Detox (NAD) naturally cleanses the body of toxic substances and may also support repair of minimal brain damage caused by an opioid addiction. In addition, NAD may expedite the detoxification process in some people compared to detox programs incorporating addiction medications.
Probuphine is the first FDA-approved, under-the-skin implant designed for maintenance treatment of an opioid dependence. Once implanted, Probuphine delivers a constant, low-level dose of buprenorphine, the standard medication given to recovering opioid addicts but in pill or sublingual form. Meant for addicts already stabilized on buprenorphine, Probuphine implants remain under the skin for six months, at which time they need removed.
Containing buprenophine and naloxone, Suboxone/Subutex is prescribed to help suppress cravings and withdrawal symptoms experienced by people in recovery. Suboxone and Subutex work by attaching to the brain’s opioid receptors that are stimulated specifically by heroin, prescription pain pills and other opioids. If an addict uses heroin or painkillers while taking Suboxone or Subutex, they will not feel that anticipated opioid “high” because the medication blocks receptor activity.
An injectable, addiction medication used during opioid detoxification and for treating alcoholism, Vivitrol contains naltrexone, a chemical blocking opioid receptors and modulating release of dopamine in the brain. By inhibiting the euphoric effects of opioids and alcohol, Vivitrol removes the “high” feeling addicts crave when using opioids or alcohol, which also helps them cope with the possibility of relapse.
Developed several years ago by Indiana-based Innovative Health Solutions and approved for use by the FDA, the Neuro-stim System Bridge detox device is a non-pharmaceutical method designed to provide pain relief for people withdrawing from opioid drugs.
