Suboxone® treatment plan to safely detox patients from opiates with minimal disruption of their day-to-day lives

The Program

Medication-assisted treatment uses both Suboxone® and therapy to help people into recovery from opioid dependency. Suboxone® helps reduce addictive cravings and allows patients to remain more functional and involved in their families, jobs and communities throughout recovery.

Other benefits of Suboxone® include:

  • Lower risk of abuse and dependency
  • Fewer side effects
  • Long duration of action, resulting in infrequent dosing (usually once per day)
  • “Ceiling effect” which blocks the ability to get high, reducing the likelihood of opioid use

Suboxone® is FDA-approved and carefully monitored according to evidence-based treatments that have been shown to give patients the best chance at success.

Discreet and convenient addiction services.

Outpatient services for adults 18 and over:

  • Individualized, compassionate care
  • Flexible hours of treatment and privacy
  • Medication assisted treatment
  • Group and individual counseling
  • Relapse prevention for alcohol and other substances
  • Outpatient detox for opiate dependency
  • Family education

A comprehensive approach to treatment
At Natchaug, we believe that therapy is central to successful addiction recovery. Medication such as Suboxone® has been shown to improve treatment outcomes, but every patient also participates in a relapse prevention group to improve overall functioning and provide support in recovery.

For those who need more intensive or regular treatment, Natchaug offers partial hospitalization and intensive outpatients which offer three to four hours of treatment up to five days a week.

Where privacy is part of recovery.
We understand that the feeling of utmost privacy is an essential benefit during a delicate time like recovery. So we’ve designed our Suboxone medication-assisted treatment programs to maximize privacy.

This includes:

  • Accommodating schedules for working professionals
  • Medication pick-up at local pharmacies or delivery to program or home
  • Small groups for relapse prevention groups
