Medication Assisted Treatment can help you recover
For many, Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) can be the stepping stone so many desperately need to get through the worst parts of withdrawal – and on to a path to recovery. At Delaware County Healthcare Clinic, we believe the best kind of treatment is the kind that works for you.
That’s why we offer two opioid replacement therapy options to help people struggling with opioid addiction achieve and maintain recovery:
- Medication Assisted Treatment: In combination with substance abuse counseling, Delaware County Healthcare Clinic utilizes FDA- approved methadone, Subutex, Suboxone, Sublocade, and VIVITROL to help reduce physical cravings and withdrawals caused by opioids.
- Office-Based Opioid Treatment (OBOT): Eligible patients receive a doctor’s prescription for Suboxone to be taken at home, rather than coming into the facility to receive Suboxone each day.

Medications available to you at Delaware County Healthcare Clinic
Not sure which medication is the right one for you? Our team will work with you to determine which medication would work best for you.
- Methadone is a synthetic opioid agonist, which eliminates withdrawal symptoms and relieves drug cravings by acting on opioid receptions in the brain – the same receptors that opioids like heroin, morphine and opioid pain medications activate.
- Methadone occupies and activities these opioid receptors, it does so more slowly and does not produce euphoria.
- Suboxone binds to the brain’s opioid receptors; however, it doesn’t fully stimulate them.
- Suboxone can reduce withdrawal symptoms and alleviate drug cravings.
- Subutex is a partial opioid antagonist that binds with opioid receptors responsible for pain and feelings of well-being.
- Subutex is used for preventing withdrawal symptoms from and cravings for opiates.
- Vivitrol is an opioid antagonist and binds to opioid receptors without causing a euphoric state, reducing cravings for drugs or alcohol.
- Vivitrol is an intramuscular shot.
- Sublocade attaches to opioid receptors and blocks the reward sensation of opioid, lessening withdrawal symptoms and cravings.
- Sublocade is slowly released and provides long-lasting relief.

OBOT services via Suboxone doctor
The other opioid replacement treatment available at our Lansdowne, PA location is Office-Based Opioid Treatment (OBOT) 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. Learn more about OBOT and if it’s the right choice for you.
