Overview

Willamette Valley Comprehensive Treatment Center provides men and women, aged 18 and older, with all-inclusive treatment for opioid addictions. We understand the importance of providing patients with comprehensive treatment to treat the physical as well as psychological facets of an addiction so that recovery is an achievable goal. The following medications are prescribed within our medication assisted treatment program:

Methadone: Methadone provides patients with relief from the physical symptoms of withdrawal while keeping cravings for additional opioid use at bay. Methadone is a synthetic opioid that allows patients to safely progress in treatment without experiencing any cognitive disruptions. Since methadone will not cause patients to experience a euphoric high, individuals are able to take part in daily activities such as work and school without interruption.

Subutex: Subutex is a partial opioid agonist-antagonist that blocks the effects of opioids within an individual’s brain. Consisting of buprenorphine as its main ingredient, Subutex reduces the symptoms of withdrawal and eliminates cravings for additional opioid use.

Suboxone: Unlike other medications that are prescribed in medication assisted treatment, Suboxone will cause patients to experience the physical symptoms of withdrawal should they attempt to abuse this medication or other substances during the course of treatment. Comprised of a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone, Suboxone reduces the symptoms of withdrawal while eliminating cravings for additional opioid use.

Vivitrol: While the other medications that are prescribed in treatment are typically given daily, Vivitrol is administered via injection once monthly. This medication is a non-narcotic, non-addictive prescription that provides relief from the physical symptoms of withdrawal while ceasing cravings for continued opioid use.
