Methadone maintenance is a long-term treatment for the addiction to opiates such as heroin and opiate based pain medications like Oyxcodone. The client must take this medication daily. Once a client is stabilized on methadone, the negative thoughts, associated with addiction, often diminish. The client’s life tends to normalize and functioning increases, which can include repairing the family dynamic, working, achieving educational goals, addressing both mental and physical health co-occurring disorders and enjoying an active, healthy lifestyle. Achieving a healthier, normal life through methadone maintenance is a valid form of recovery from opioid addiction. Improvement in all areas of health and social integration increase with the length of time in treatment. The greatest positive change comes in the first year of treatment as you continue to get better.

Suboxone is used as a long-term treatment for opiate addiction as an alternative to methadone maintenance treatment for patients with a minimal addiction history.  Suboxone when taken orally under the tongue in an appropriate dose can suppress symptoms of opiate withdrawal while decreasing craving for opiates for 24 hours in most cases.  Suboxone is a partial opioid agonist, which has limited opiate effects compared to full opioid agonists, such as heroin, morphine, and methadone. Suboxone also contains Naloxone (narcan), which is an opioid antagonist.  New patients will meet with an ARI physician on the day of their intake for a full assessment and to determine an initial dose of Suboxone.  When the physician is satisfied that the patient is on a stable dose of Suboxone the patient will only need to attend the clinic once a month thereafter. Patients will be required to provide a monthly urine specimen for a drug screen to detect any continued illicit drug use. Prescriptions for Suboxone are not covered in our intake fee or the monthly fee for the Suboxone Program. The patient must pay for their prescription at the pharmacy through their insurance or out of pocket.

Addiction Counseling


Counseling Services

1 on 1 addiction counseling


Our clinic offers individual counseling through skilled knowledgeable counselors and a clinical team with extensive backgrounds in substance abuse/behavioral health. Our counselors focus on the development of coping skills, recognizing organic and inorganic triggers, and relapse prevention.


Some of the benefits of working one-on-one with a counselor include:

  • Getting advice and assistance in navigating a new life free from opiates. As this often means a new social group, employment changes and a different living situation, stressors will arise that can threaten recovery.
  • Learning better communication and interpersonal skills
  • Learning to cope with past traumas
  • Learning healthy ways to resolve family conflicts
  • Learning to recognize warning signs of relapse
  • Keeping your motivation strong by crystallizing your reasons for quitting
  • Receiving advice and support in navigating the legal or medical system to get needed services
  • Learning to obtain and utilize resources within the community

                      

   All clients in our opioid treatment program are subject to randomized monthly urine drug screenings as an assessment tool and as a part of the treatment process.
