Yes! Do not be fooled by doctor’s that do not accept insurance and/or just write scripts for Suboxone or Subutex, offer Vivitrol injections, Naltrexone implants, etc. Medication alone is NOT ADDICTION TREATMENT. In PA, addiction treatment is highly regulated and only state-licensed facilities can provide addiction treatment. Taking medication without addressing a person’s addictive tendencies and learning strategies to manage the brain changes associated with addiction has a high failure rate. Medication helps stabilize a person, reduces cravings and increases the chances of maintaining recovery, but it is not a magic pill. The person will still need to work hard at recovery and personal change through individual and group counseling with experienced clinicians who will make a difference in your recovery.
