Prescription Opiate Addiction

Our Spectrum medical physician is certified to provide SUBOXONE® Understanding opioid dependenceVIVITROL® and opioid dependence and other buprenorphine related products such as Subutex, which are the newest advances in pharmacologic management of prescription opioid addiction or physical dependence. Our physician has helped return many patients to a normal and healthy lifestyle. Frequently, patients are placed on increasing quantities of narcotic medication due to injury or damage to their bodies. Suboxone management provides a transition to taper off narcotics without the common physical withdrawal symptoms experienced by many patients. Vivitrol is provided for the patient who may be without withdrawal symptoms and desires a medication that ensures abstinence and stability in the fight against opiate cravings. Examples of opiates that are addictive include: Percocet, Oxycodone, Morphine, Hydrocodone, Dilaudid, Codeine, Fentanyl

Heroin Addiction

Spectrum Health provides a friendly and family oriented environment to seek recovery from heroin addiction. As heroin addiction is increasingly shown to be more life threatening with the additives such as Fentanyl and Carfentanil, it has never been more important to find a physician who can provide maintenance with Suboxone or Vivitrol. Benefits of these medications are:

  • Suboxone can provide complete resolution of cravings and withdrawal symptoms
  • Suboxone can be provided at an outpatient pharmacy and can be self-administered daily, unlike methadone maintenance. This is especially important for individuals who may lead a busy and active life
  • When a patient is ready, Vivitrol can be used to transition patients off Suboxone successfully while acting as an effective tool to avoid relapse
