Realizing the importance of supplying services that can help these individuals achieve success over a heroin or other opioid addiction, our center offers the below-listed effective medication, of which can be incorporated into a patient’s personalized treatment plan:

Methadone: Methadone is a medication that is capable of curbing cravings and alleviating withdrawal symptoms, however, does not cause an individual to get high as they would through other substances like heroin or prescription painkillers. Methadone is an opioid agonist and effective in helping individuals defeat addictions to opioids.

In addition, Brattleboro Comprehensive Treatment Center offers a number of services designed to support those who are obtaining medication-assisted treatment that includes methadone.
