Claymont Comprehensive Treatment Center provides medication-assisted treatment to individuals aged 18 and older who are struggling with an addiction to opioids.

Patients receive a comprehensive treatment approach which can incorporate the following prescription medications to aid in the recovery process:

Methadone: Methadone is a synthetic medication that provides relief from opioid cravings, as well as the symptoms that are associated with withdrawal. Methadone is an opioid agonist that aids patients in safely weaning off of opioids without causing the same euphoric high that is often associated with opioid use.

Subutex: Subutex is a partial opioid agonist-antagonist that consists of buprenorphine as its single active ingredient to block the effects of opioids within a patient’s brain. Patients who are given Subutex experience a reduction in cravings for additional opioids and a decrease in withdrawal symptoms.

Suboxone: Suboxone is comprised of both naloxone and buprenorphine as its active ingredients. Suboxone lowers withdrawal symptoms as well as cravings for additional opioids, while also causing symptoms of withdrawal should a patient attempt to abuse this medication or other opioids during the course of treatment.

Vivitrol: Vivitrol is a non-narcotic, non-addictive medication given once monthly via injection. Vivitrol includes naltrexone as its active component to aid in the reduction of opioid cravings, as well as decreases the symptoms that can take place during withdrawal.

The medications prescribed, as well as the specific dosages given, will vary between patients based on their specific needs. Medications can also be altered throughout the course of treatment if deemed appropriate.

Claymont Comprehensive Treatment Center believes that patients must receive additional support while taking part in medication-assisted treatment that includes Vivitrol, Subutex, Suboxone, or methadone. Our dedicated team of physicians, nurses, and counselors provides patients with individualized care to ensure that their specific needs and treatment goals are met. The following therapeutic interventions are available to patients to provide individuals with a truly comprehensive treatment approach:

  • Individual therapy sessions provide patients with the opportunity to openly discuss their feelings in a safe one-on-one setting with a qualified counselor.
  • Group therapy sessions are counselor-led sessions that provide patients with the opportunity to gain support, encouragement, and insight from other patients who truly understand the struggles associated with addiction and recovery.

Claymont Comprehensive Treatment Center provides individuals with the opportunity to overcome addictions to opioids by receiving the highest quality of comprehensive care available. Breaking free from the cycle of addiction and achieving long-term recovery is possible with the assistance of our dedicated team of medical professionals.
