Anchorage Treatment Solutions provides individuals, aged 18 and older, with top-notch medication assisted treatment for opioid addiction.

Through the use of the following prescription medications, patients are able to come to know a life that is free from physical aspects of opioid addiction:

Methadone: A safe option to aid patients in weaning off of opioids, methadone works by preventing individuals from experiencing cravings for continued opioid use while also eliminating the symptoms of withdrawal. Since patients will not experience a euphoric high while taking methadone, they will be able to play an active role in daily obligations, as well as in their treatment.

Subutex: Subutex is a partial opioid agonist-antagonist that includes buprenorphine as its active ingredient. This medication eliminates the symptoms of withdrawal and blocks the effects of opioids within a patient’s brain. Subutex is also effective in keeping cravings for continued opioid use at bay.

Suboxone: Including both naloxone and buprenorphine, Suboxone eliminates the symptoms of withdrawal while minimizing cravings for opioids.
