Suboxone Treatments

Suboxone is a medication that can be used to treat opioid addiction. While the medication itself is helpful, successful treatment addiction involves taking a holistic approach that addresses other issues that the opioid abuser may have. In addition, an effective program requires the use of an aftercare program to help prevent relapse. With the rate of relapse among those with a substance use disorder being somewhere between 37 and 56 percent, after care treatment should be considered an essential part of ongoing recover.

Fortunately, there are several different types of aftercare programs available to those seeking outpatient treatment. These options include:

  • Group Counseling: Involves listening to and sharing experiences associated with addiction with others who have also experienced addiction. Group therapy works to build social skills and coping skills within a group setting.
  • Individual Therapy: Involves meeting one-on-one with a therapist to build upon the progress that was made during the initial treatment.

12-Step Programs: Includes fellowship programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) that provide support and encouragement to participants as they continue down the road to recovery.

In some cases, a combination of two or all three of these aftercare programs is the most effective option. With the challenge of maintaining abstinence in the face of real world challenges presenting its own set of obstacles, utilizing these aftercare programs can help to ensure the proper protocols are continually put in place in order to remain clear and free from addiction.
