Wichita Comprehensive Treatment Center is a leading provider of medically supervised medication assisted treatment for individuals aged 18 and older. Our center recognizes the importance of providing services that can help these individuals bounce back from heroin or other opioid addictions. Therefore, we supply the following proven-effective medications that might be incorporated into a patient’s customized treatment plan:
Methadone: Methadone is a synthetic opioid agonist that helps stop the onset of withdrawal symptoms and cravings, however does not produce the same high that individuals would otherwise obtain through the abuse of other opioids. This medication is effective in helping patients wean off of their opioid such as heroin or prescription pain medications.
Subutex: Subutex contains buprenorphine as its primary ingredient, and works to prevent intense withdrawal symptoms and drug cravings for continued opioid use. Classified as a partial opioid agonist-antagonist, Subutex is able to block the effects of opioids on the brain.
The medication and dosage recommended for a patient will be determined by his or her treatment needs. It is important to know that dosages of these medications can be adjusted if it is necessary to a patient’s care.
