Methadone is a legal alternative medication that can be prescribed to patients who are struggling with opiate addiction. BrookStone Medical Center offers both Methadone and Burprenorphine as medication-assisted treatments to patients who are looking to taper off of prescriptions drugs or heroin.
Opioid therapies with the help of methadone or burprenorphine reduce the effects of opioid withdrawal and reduce cravings. They have been shown to increase retention in treatment and reduce risk behaviors that lead to transmission of HIV and viral hepatitis such as using opioids by injection.
At BrookStone Medical Center we offer specialized daily doses of liquid Methadone prescribed by the physician after a physical examination. Each patient who is enrolled in the Methadone Tapering program will be required to come to BSMC daily during business hours (530 -11 AM) to receive their daily dose. All participants will receive a take home on Sunday and all Federal Holidays. Counseling is included in each treatment plan, specialized for each patients needs.
The methadone dosing fee of $17 daily includes urine drug testing, doctor visits, counseling and the medication.
Similar to Methadone, Burprenorphine is a legal alternative medication that can be prescribed to patients who are struggling with opiate addiction. Buprenorphine is offered in tablets that are to be dissolved under the tongue each day when patients come into the clinic to receive their dose. The dissolving medication is proctored by a trained medical team to ensure patients are receiving the most effective treatment.
Buprenorphine is known to be a better quality product with less side effects, however this can differ from patient to patient. Each patient who is enrolled in the Buprenorphine Tapering program will be required to come to BSMC daily during business hours (530-11 AM) to receive their daily dose. All patients receive take home medications on Sundays and all Federal Holidays.
The Buprenorphine treatment fee of $23 daily includes urine drug testing, doctor visits, counseling and the medication.
These medications coupled with counseling have been shown to increase retention in treatment and reduce risk behaviors that lead to transmission of HIV and viral hepatitis such as using opioids by injection.
Our monthly Suboxone treatment is limited in space. Suboxone is for patients who are further along their road to recovery, and who have built up trust with their responsibility of their medication and have acquired many take homes. We require our suboxone patients to be employed, come in once a month for a follow up appointment, and participate in counseling events.
Due to the limited capacity of this program, BrookStone Medical will only accept new patients in special circumstances approved by the Physician.
BSMC only offers rapid tapers in two different circumstances:
1. A person who is going into intensive patient therapy and is in need of a detox to enter
2. A person who is going to have a surgery and needs to detox before doctor will clear them
In order to participate in a rapid taper we will need written proof of patients transition plan into inpatient therapy or their surgical transcripts. No exceptions. Price is to be determined by length of treatment.
One form of counseling that BSMC offers, is our online courses. BrookStone Medical Center will supply each patient with one set of ear buds and an online login to access the program. This program teaches behavioral skills and gives advice about what you should do in common situations that could lead to relapse or other unhealthy consequences. There is a voice recorded discussion leader that narrates a series of scenarios and real life events to teach how to best react to situations you might find your self in.
This is a popular option for patients who may have a rigid schedule and enjoy working through there counseling on their own hours rather than coming in and scheduling a set appointment. The online course is interactive with quizzes, questions, cross words and other slides that will allow you to participate in the program. Each segment will last anywhere from 30-50 minutes and counts towards the required counseling hours for the treatment program.
Group Classes is a specific form of coaching that is used to treat psychological disorders including substance abuse and addiction. Typically, it involves regular sessions where one or more group leaders work with several individuals who are being treated for the same health issue. Many people benefit from the peer support in group classes and discussions. These classes can help people in several ways: Being able to interact with other individuals who are learning to cope with similar addictions or health issues, realizing your not alone through hearing others share similar experiences can help boost self esteem, sharing feelings has been shown to reduce stress, guilt and pain, members learn how to avoid engaging in destructive behaviors and practice using new healthy behaviors.
Group Classes will be held at BrookStone Medical Center. We have several different groups every Tuesday and Thursday. Emotionally Focused Recovery begins at 7, while the Peer to Peer Support Group and the Family Support Group begin at 8.
Group classes generally last 1 hour and is always a positive and uplifting environment. All BSMC patients are welcome to join as many group sessions as they would like, for no extra cost. 1 hour of group does count towards the required counseling hours for the treatment program
In order for every patient to feel most comfortable, Brookstone Medical Center provides individual and private coaching in our building. If you prefer to talk one on one this is a great option for you to do so, one on one coaching with a team member will help with your compliance standing and required counseling hours.
