Methadone and Buprenorphine are opiates used to treat withdrawal symptoms. Therefore, if used inappropriately, a person can become addicted to them. However, at ASAP, they are prescribed by a physician who oversees the medical treatment of your recovery here. Because the physician is determining the dose of the medication you are receiving, addiction to them will not occur. Vivitrol is an opiate antagonist and blocks opiate receptors, thus is not addictive.

Patients may choose to stop treatment whenever they wish, but it is best to continue treatment until the patient is truly able to understand their addiction and feels ready and safe to leave the program.
