Methadone & Suboxone Treatment — Delaware County,
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.
RCA at Lansdowne 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 effects of illicit opioids, and alleviates physical opioid withdrawals, says SAMHSA.
MAT at Recovery Centers of America at Lansdowne also includes 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, PA
RCA at Lansdowne 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.
RCA at Lansdowne 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
RCA at Lansdowne has a team of professional substance use counselors who work closely with our patients to tackle any psychological issues that could contribute to an 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.
Need a Suboxone Doctor in 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 to 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 to 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, RCA believes in giving patients a choice in treatment along with the expert guidance of an experienced doctor, this approach leads to improved recovery outcomes.
