Medication Assisted Treatment

At Lake-Geauga Recovery Centers, we offer a Medication Assisted Treatment Program to help individuals manage an opiate addiction consisting of:
- Other support
The Medication Assisted Treatment program utilizes evidence based practices at an appropriate level of care for a minimum of 12-18 months. The medication helps reduce problems of craving, reduces relapse potential and increases an individual’s ability to engage in treatment and focus on recovery. Naltrexone, an oral medication, Vivitrol, a monthly injection or Suboxone (Buprenorphine) are used to treat opiate addiciton.
Medication is only prescribed as part of a comprehensive treatment plan and individuals are expected to participate in a therapeutic level of care at Lake-Geauga Recovery Centers, such as outpatient or residential treatment. An assessment by Lake-Geauga Recovery Centers’ licensed clinician and health care provider is the first step in the Medication Assisted Treatment Program.
