What is an OTP (opioid treatment program)?
An opioid treatment program (OTP) is a specialized program that provides comprehensive treatment for people struggling with opioid addiction.
It involves the use of therapy and medications such as methadone or buprenorphine to help manage withdrawal symptoms and cravings. The goal of an OTP is to provide evidence-based treatment that promotes long-term recovery and improved quality of life for people with opioid use disorder.
What medication is best for withdrawal?
Commonly used medications for opioid withdrawal include buprenorphine (we use it in the form of Subutex and Suboxone), methadone, and naltrexone. Continued medication may be recommended to support recovery and prevent relapse. It is crucial to consult with a medical professional who can provide guidance and tailor the treatment plan to each person’s unique situation.

Are opiate and opioid withdrawal symptoms the same?
Yes, opioid and opiate withdrawal symptoms are generally similar since both opiates and opioids affect the opioid receptors in the brain and are used to treat pain. The main difference between opiates and opioids lies in their origin.
Opiates refer specifically to drugs derived from opium, such as morphine and codeine. On the other hand, opioids encompass a broader category that includes both natural opiates and synthetic or semi-synthetic drugs that act on the same receptors in the brain, such as oxycodone, hydrocodone, and fentanyl.
The symptoms experienced during withdrawal from opiates can include physical discomfort, cravings, insomnia, and other associated withdrawal symptoms. Opiate detox centers are equipped to provide comprehensive support and treatment for people experiencing withdrawal from opiates, helping opiate abusers manage symptoms and work towards recovery.
If you or a loved one are suffering from an opiate addiction, contact our opiate addiction treatment center, and we’ll get you started on an opiate detox program and the first step towards your recovery.
