Medication Assisted Treatment
Prestera Center provides buprenorphine (for example, Suboxone®) and naltrexone (for examle, Vivitrol®) treatment to adults with physical dependence on pain killers and other opiates and opioids. Professional treatment services, regular drug tests and peer support are essential and required components of the program.
This program provides medication that helps adults beat their dependence on prescription pain killers. Suboxone® keeps the opiate receptors in the brain occupied so there is no feeling of withdrawal, cravings or being “high.” The medication can be given for 6 to 12 months or longer. Vivitrol® is a once-a-month injection that reduces or eliminates cravings for opioids and opiates. Medications are most effective when combined with counseling or therapy and support services.
