Liberation Way’s C.A.R.E. (Collaborative Approach to Recovery Enhancement)
Maintenance Treatment Program:
With the growing need for support and treatment solutions advances in the rehabilitation field has found buprenorphine, also know as suboxone, when accompanied with the appropriate counseling support to be a proven and effective treatment for addiction to opiates. Maintenance therapy provides clients who meet our criteria the chance to have a safe and therapeutic stabilization period. The patient remains on the lowest effective dose for an indefinite amount of time to suppress signs and symptoms of the disease of addiction. This allows patients to prepare and make the necessary changes that would otherwise make long-term addiction. This allows the patient to prepare and make the necessary changes that would otherwise make long-term addiction remission unlikely.
The federal government has a legal definition of maintenance treatment as it applies to federal laws concerning opioid addiction treatment. “The term ‘maintenance treatment’ means the dispensing for a period more than twenty-one days of a narcotic drug in the treatment of an individual for dependence upon heroin or other morphine-like drugs.”

Suboxone & Subutex (buprenorphine) can effectively help those looking to find freedom from opiates achieve lasting sobriety, according to evidence-based studies. While usually not life-threatening withdrawal from opiates like heroin and prescription painkiller medications like oxycodone or hydrocodone can be horribly uncomfortable—not to mention, a very real obstacle to getting treatment. Suboxone successfully alleviates these symptoms, including the cravings that can often precipitate relapse (and in some cases fatal overdose).
In a vast majority of cases, Suboxone is only a short-term intervention: once the medication has helped clients get through early recovery, it can be gradually tapered and eventually discontinued. However, in some cases long-term Suboxone may be needed.
Vivitrol (naltrexone) is known for its effectiveness at decreasing alcohol and opiate craving cravings. The drug blocks natural opioid receptors in the brain, thereby deactivating the euphoric and sedative effects of drugs like heroin, morphine, codeine and alcohol. Vivitrol/ Naltrexone is available as a pill and a once-monthly injection. Unlike Suboxone, which is a treatment for opioid dependence, Vivitrol is for the prevention of relapse It is important to successfully treat the addiction disorder before initiating this type of relapse prevention protocol. If relapse prevention with naltrexone occurs before the underlying addiction condition is sufficiently in remissions the patient may experience symptoms of a chronic addiction disorder.
How do I know if maintenance treatment is right for me?
What works for one may not work for another. Having multiple options and opportunities to improve one’s quality of life is important. If you are currently or seeking treatment options our medical team will conduct an intensive screening and assessment to will determine if the C.A.R.E. program recommended. Our trained staff will provide you or your loved one with treatment options to meet individual needs.
My loved one was on Suboxone before and it didn’t work?
There are multiple pathways to change and evidence has shown that maintenance therapy combined with traditional treatment, support services, and accountability increases the success individuals have. Sometimes additional is needed or different clinical treatment needs to be provided.
What if I already see a doctor for Suboxone?
We take a collaborative approach and work in conjunction with your current provider to ensure transparency and reinforce accountability. Our program will be an added benefit for anyone currently on a maintenance therapy program and all transportation for appointments will be arranged.
