Comprehensive Therapies for People in Substance Abuse Recovery
Suboxone and buprenorphine
Suboxone, or buprenorphine-based therapy is an effective option and acts similarly to methadone in that it eliminates withdrawal and cravings. During your initial consultation with our physician, you will discuss your needs and determine which treatment is right for you.
ONCE MONTHLY Sublocade is now available and is often covered by Medicaid and Medicare plans. Ascent Recovery Solutions is proud to offer Sublocade as another option to our patients. Sublocade works like other medications by keeping withdrawal symptoms and cravings suppressed; however, unlike other oral medications it is given roughly once a month and can provide 24/7 relief from withdrawal and other symptoms. In one study, Sublocade patients were 14x more likely to achieve treatment success*. As a slow release medication, it can help avoid the ups and downs that patients may experience with oral treatments like films and tablets. It also means no medication to keep track of or bring with you wherever you go. This also means less worries about the pharmacy having it in stock. Since Sublocade is a once monthly injection, it reduces visits and time spent in the doctor’s office which is ideal for patients who work or have irregular schedules.

*28% of people with SUBLOCADE plus counseling compared to 2% of people with placebo plus counseling.
*In a 24-week study, treatment success was defined as opioid-free at least 80% of the weeks in treatment. Opioid-free means urine sample tested negative for illicit opioids plus no self-reported use of opioids. Weeks were not always consecutive.
