Methadone & Suboxone Treatment — Delaware County,
Lansdowne, Upper Darby, and Philadelphia
According to Open Data provided by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the opioid epidemic is the single most severe public health catastrophe in Pennsylvania in nearly 30 years. Southeastern Pennsylvania, where Delaware County, Lansdowne, Upper Darby, and Philadelphia are all located, was hit particularly hard with well over a quarter of all opioid overdose deaths in 2018. This is one of the main reasons why Recovery Centers of America opened a methadone and suboxone treatment clinic in Lansdowne, in a location that’s easily accessible for patients from all over Delaware County and Philadelphia.
Delaware County Healthcare Clinic offers two opioid replacement therapy options to help people struggling with opioid addiction (heroin, fentanyl, oxycodone, hydrocodone, etc.) achieve and maintain recovery: a convenient methadone program and suboxone treatment (buprenorphine) via a medically supervised suboxone induction. Opioid replacement treatment using methadone or suboxone is also known as medication assisted treatment (MAT). MAT helps stabilize brain chemistry, blocks the effects of illicit opioids, and alleviates physical opioid withdrawals, says SAMHSA.
Delaware County Healthcare Clinic’s services also include continuous substance use counseling and support groups to give patients all of the tools they need to reach full and lasting recovery from opioid addiction.
Methadone Clinic in Delaware County
Delaware County Healthcare Clinic is a fully licensed methadone clinic serving Delaware County, Lansdowne, Upper Darby, and Philadelphia. Methadone is one of the most effective tools available in the treatment of moderate to heavy opioid addiction. Our clinic offers daily, walk-in admissions as well as a convenient location right near the SEPTA line to make access to opioid addiction treatment as easy as possible for patients throughout Delaware County and in Philadelphia.
Delaware County Healthcare Clinic combines methadone treatment with counseling for a more complete approach to opioid addiction treatment. By adding counseling to the program, any underlying psychological issues that could be fueling the opioid addiction are treated alongside the physiological symptoms and cravings. When taken daily, methadone can greatly cut back on cravings, decrease and even eliminate withdrawal symptoms, help promote abstinence and aid patients in remaining productive in day-to-day activities.
In other words, MAT helps patients live a happy, healthy, and meaningful life again.
Substance Abuse Counseling
Delaware County Healthcare Clinic has a team of professional substance use counselors who work closely with our patients to tackle any psychological issues that could contribute to opioid addiction. We know one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to addiction treatment, and counseling isn’t exclusive of that. We have several different types of counseling, including individual and group counseling, and outpatient counseling, in order to teach our patients critical skills for long-term, viable recovery. With this, patients gain insight into their own thoughts and behaviors and develop the tools necessary to prevent relapse.
Looking for a Suboxone Doctor close to Philadelphia, Upper Darby, or Lansdowne?
The other opioid replacement treatment available at our Lansdowne, PA location is suboxone (buprenorphine). Doctor-prescribed Suboxone is a partial agonist opioid that is specifically formulated for the treatment of opiate dependence. Much like Methadone, Suboxone binds to the brain’s opioid receptors but does not fully stimulate the receptors. What this means: It fights off physical dependence on opioids in a way that differs from methadone but is equally effective.
While both Methadone and Suboxone are proven to be effective when treating opioid dependence, Delaware County Healthcare Clinic believes in giving patients a choice in treatment along with the expert guidance of an experienced doctor, this approach leads to improved recovery outcomes.
Vivitrol shot in Delaware County, PA
Delaware County Healthcare Clinic provides patients with the option of a Vivitrol shot to help recovery from alcohol, heroin, oxycodone, and other opiates. When taken under the supervision of a medically-trained professional, you will no longer be burdened by overwhelming cravings and urges. The active ingredient in Vivitrol – naltrexone – interacts with the same receptors in the brain that are usually activated when opioids are abused. Therefore, you can still have the mental and physical clarity without having to deal with withdrawal. Due to its extended-release properties, Vivitrol enables you to function in day-to-day activities without reporting to a treatment center for a daily dose. Like other MAT options, Vivitrol is most effective when coupled with additional addiction programming, such as counseling.
