What Medications Do You Use To Treat Opioid Use Disorders?
We treat opioid use disorder with medications containing buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone and others). Depending on your treatment program and the medication that you decide to take with our guidance, you’ll receive a prescription that you can fill at your local pharmacy and take orally or one that we will have delivered to our offices in order to administer an injection on a monthly basis.
What Is Suboxone And/or Sublocade?
Suboxone (brand name for sublingual tablet or film of buprenorphine) is a medication used to treat opioid use disorders. Unlike methadone used to treat opioid use disorders, Suboxone is a prescription-based medication that you can take at home. It helps reduce/eliminate cravings for opioids, improving the quality of your life.
Why Does Recovery Connection Offer Therapy At Your Clinics When Others Don’t?
Offering therapy in our clinics instead of making you go elsewhere means that your care is more efficient for you and our interdisciplinary team can coordinate. Anyone with the proper licensing can prescribe medication but without treating the root causes of what is causing your need for opiod use there will always be a fear of relapsing.
Why Do You Ask Me To Be In Therapy Throughout My Treatment?
Research has shown effective treatment of substance use disorders combines medication (Suboxone, Sublocade, and psychiatric medications) and psychotherapy. By itself, medication can reduce cravings and withdrawal, and to successfully recover from substance use you need to change your habits and thought processes. Therapy helps you strengthen your relationships; address financial, occupational, family and other stresses; improve anxiety and depression; and make meaningful changes for a healthy fulfilled life.
Can I Change To A Different Recovery Connection Location If It’s More Convenient For Me Or If I Move?

Can I Rejoin The Recovery Connection Program If I’ve Left?
Yes, at any time.
What Happens If I Relapse Or Quit Treatment?
Relapse or other difficulty in meeting your goals does not mean that you are no longer a patient. In many cases, we can continue to provide care consistent with your current state and goals. Our ability to provide addiction related services may change based on your use of substances but at all times, we will make every effort to make the best clinical decisions we are able. If you quit treatment for any reason, you may return at any time unless at the time of your departure another follow up plan is agreed upon.
