Understanding Lorcet Abuse

When a doctor recommends and prescribes this painkiller, a disclaimer is often given that this medication has a high potential for abuse and should be taken only as directed. Unfortunately, because Lorcet can be habit-forming, there are many individuals that eventually abuse and become addicted to this medication. When this occurs, those addicted to Lorcet often require the assistance of professionals and effective treatment in order to regain control of their lives. The withdrawal that is known to ensue after an individual no longer abuses this medication can be painful and unpleasant, of which can further entice a person to continue this perilous pattern of substance abuse. Fortunately, there are numerous treatment options in existence that can restore good health and wellbeing to Lorcet abusers. Among the most effective, however, is medication assisted treatment.

Types of Treatment Offered

Types of Treatment Offered for Lorcet Abuse at Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers

Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers are a network of outpatient providers that offer an array of medically supervised medication assisted treatment options for those who wish to overcome an addiction to or dependence upon opiates, such as Lorcet. Men and women, aged 18 and older, who have been abusing Lorcet or other opiates for one year or more can partake in our services. Our experienced and professional staff is comprised of doctors, nurses, and counselors who work with clients to determine the most appropriate dosage of any medication prescribed and any additional therapeutic interventions that will further the recovery process.

The medications and therapeutic interventions that could be part of a client’s treatment can include the following:

Methadone: A medication that prevents cravings and the withdrawal symptoms that are known to occur after a person ceases his or her use of Lorcet is methadone. Those prescribed methadone will not experience the high that occurs when a person consumes a prescription painkiller, as methadone is an opioid agonist. The dosage of this medication, which is taken daily, is determined based on each client’s needs and will likely be decreased over time in order to wean the individual off of it so that true sobriety can be achieved.       

Suboxone: Containing buprenorphine and naloxone, Suboxone reduces cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Unlike other medication assisted treatments, this medication can also trigger symptoms of withdrawal should an individual attempt to abuse an opioid, such as Lorcet, while receiving this type of medication assisted treatment. Suboxone is typically consumed daily and the dosage will be determined based on the treatment needs of the individual.

Subutex: Comprised of buprenorphine as the active ingredient, Subutex lessens cravings and diminishes withdrawal symptoms by blocking the harmful effects of Lorcet and other opiates within an individual’s brain. Subutex is classified as a partial opioid agonist-antagonist, meaning the effects of consuming an opioid are blocked, yet the withdrawal symptoms are decreased in order to allow a person to work on his or her recovery. Daily consumption of this medication is part of this type of treatment and the amount taken each day is recommended by one of our highly-qualified doctors.

Vivitrol: A non-narcotic, non-addictive medication assisted treatment option is Vivitrol. This medication is one that is injected into an individual to reduce cravings for Lorcet and other opiates. Naltrexone is the active ingredient and this treatment option is one that is typically administered once per month.   

Individual and group therapy: In order to enhance the effectiveness of the medication assisted treatments we offer, Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers incorporate individual and group therapy sessions into the treatments available. Individual therapy sessions occur one-on-one with a counselor and can be a time when clients process their feelings and emotions with regards to their own recovery. Group therapy sessions are also conducted by counselors and can feature a wide range of topics covered. Other clients participate in group therapy sessions so that the men and women receiving treatment at our centers can feel a strong sense of support and encouragement from others who have endured similar struggles.
