Methadone is one of the more successful ways of treating opioid addiction. It relieves withdrawal symptoms, reduces the opiate cravings, and brings about a biochemical balance in the body that allows individuals to stop the illegal use of opioids.
Methadone is a legally controlled medication that when combined with counseling and supportive services, allows an individual to return to a more stable and productive life.
Methadone is prescribed by a licensed physician under Texas’ Department of State Health Services and DEA guidelines and restrictions for the treatment of opioid dependence.

Suboxone® (Buprenorphine) therapy is one of the most promising treatments for opiate addiction. Buprenorphine is the first addiction drug that can be prescribed by a physician on an outpatient basis and is offered at STOP SA as an alternative to traditional methadone maintenance treatment.
Buprenorphine is the active ingredient in Suboxone® and is itself an opioid. But unlike opioid prescription painkillers and heroin, which are “full opioid agonists,” buprenorphine is a “partial opioid agonist.” That means that the buprenorphine in Suboxone attaches to the same receptors in the brain that the other opioids attach to, but it does not provide the "high" associated with pain killers and heroin. Because buprenorphine binds tightly to the body’s opioid receptors, it can block the effects of other opioids. This is why Suboxone film can help patients manage and reduce withdrawal symptoms as well as the cravings for opioids.
Buprenorphine is prescribed by a licensed physician under DEA guidelines and restrictions for the treatment of opioid dependence. It offers an alternative and less restrictive treatment to methadone and does not require daily visits to the clinic.
Patients who meet admission criteria are evaluated with a full history and physical by the clinic physician and if qualify for admission are prescribed buprenorphine.
Patients may be seen initially with increasing frequency (weekly) until a safe and effective dose is established. After the initial 2-4 weeks of treatment, patients may be seen once a month if they continue to maintain abstinence from illcit substances and meet all of the continuing program requirements.
Buprenorphine has proven very effective in the treatment of opioid dependence in some patients.
