Our communities are in the midst of an epidemic of opioid addiction and overdose. But recovery is possible. All over the nation, high-quality rehabilitation programs are administering effective, evidence-based treatments that save and change lives every day.
Licensed Medication-Assisted Treatment in Pennsylvania
Addiction treatment programs with high-quality, comprehensive clinical and medical services dedicated to the treatment of opioid addiction may be licensed and certified as Opioid Treatment Programs (OTPs). OTPs provide medication-assisted treatment as well as behavioral counseling – like cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) or dialectical behavior therapy (DBT).
Bradford Recovery Center is a fully licensed OTP. Our clinical, medical, and community leadership team has worked to evolve a robust range of individualized services designed to support and treat the complex needs arising out of opioid dependence.
Clients receive a full assessment to determine their needs, and we create individualized treatment and recovery plans tailored to their strengths, beliefs, goals, and objectives.
Medication-Assisted Treatments for Opioid Addiction
Opioids like Oxycodone and Fentanyl are powerful drugs that relieve pain. At an objective and fundamental level, intentionally relieving pain is a vital function of modern medicine, but opioids are also highly addictive, and when abused can create feelings of euphoria coupled with symptoms and patterns of profound psychological and physical dependence.
Clinical and medical evidence suggests that the most effective strategy for the treatment of opioid use disorder includes a combination of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) and counseling services.
Each patient at Bradford Recovery Center receives a full suite of individualized medical and clinical services, including a review of appropriate medication-assisted treatment interventions that often make the difference between relapse and recovery. Our experienced team is equipped to handle every clinical situation – from continuing an existing regiment of medications to initiating a maintenance protocol or a long-term detox.
Patient-Choice Detoxification Program
As a uniquely organized inpatient OTP, Bradford Recovery Center allows patients to select their choice of medication for use in the initial detoxification process. Patients will review medication options with our medical team upon admission, and select a detox protocol that is individualized to meet their needs. Medication options include:
- Buprenorphine – An opioid agonist/antagonist that blocks other narcotics while reducing withdrawal risk.
- Naltrexone – A non-addictive opioid antagonist that blocks the effects of other narcotics; daily pill or monthly injection.
