Methadone hydrochloride is a synthetic “opioid agonist,” which means that it acts in a way that is similar to morphine and other narcotic medications. When used in proper doses as part of a medically supervised opioid addiction treatment program, methadone blocks cravings and other withdrawal symptoms without creating the euphoric or sedative states that result from opioid abuse.
Buprenorphine is a partial opioid receptor agonist. Like methadone, buprenorphine can relieve opioid withdrawal symptoms without producing the intoxicating effects that are associated with opioid abuse. Buprenorphine was the first medication for the treatment of opioid dependence to be approved under the Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000.
To be eligible for this type of treatment at the Evansville Treatment Center, prospective patients much be at least 18 years old, and must have been addicted to or dependent upon opiates for a minimum of one year prior to seeking treatment.
In 2010 alone, the number of prescription painkillers prescribed in Indiana was high enough to medicate every single American adult for a month straight. In conjunction with this, there has been a quadrupling effect on the number of prescription painkiller fatal poisonings since 1999. We help people shed their dependance on these crippling drugs. Please let us help you or your loved ones today.
