Medication-Assisted Treatment

We combat the disease of addiction with medication-assisted treatment as part of a comprehensive treatment approach.

We treat addiction with FDA-approved medicines (like buprenorphine) to help you focus on your recovery.

When you start a BrightView program, you will be prescribed medication to ease withdrawal symptoms. These medications work with the dopamine receptors in your brain just like opioids do, but they don’t make you feel any of the narcotic effects. This way, they allow us to ease your symptoms and keep you as comfortable as possible throughout your withdrawal.

You will still have a physical dependence to the buprenorphine, but you won’t have the cravings or compulsions you did with opioids. It’s important to understand that addiction is a brain disease that negatively affects your behavior. Dependence is a medically treatable physical condition you can recover from. So, you’re not trading one addiction for another.

Successful buprenorphine treatment gets rid of:

  • Compulsive Behaviors
  • Excessive Substance Use
  • Constant Cravings
  • And All Of The Other Symptoms Of Addiction
