Our medication-assisted treatment center offers a wide range of pharmacological treatments 

At Revival Recovery Center in Brighton, MI, we offer a variety of effective, clinically-backed medications with multiple modes of action to help patients in Brighton, Ann Arbor, Bloomfield, Canton, or Novi, MI overcome various substance abuse disorders. And nurse practitioner Lisa Perna can help you integrate all these life-saving tools to help you enjoy a brighter, healthier future free from addiction. 

For those who would like to end their nicotine dependency, we offer a range of nicotine replacement treatments in the form of patches, lozenges, nasal sprays, and inhalers, and the drugs varenicline (Chantix) and bupropion (Wellbutrin) to quash cravings while decreasing the likelihood and severity of withdrawal symptoms. 

If excessive drinking is the problem, we also provide the alcohol deterrent disulfiram (Antabuse). Unlike other medications, disulfiram creates an acute sensitivity to alcohol. It blocks the body's ability to break it down, so even a sip leads to unpleasant effects, including nausea, vomiting, and headaches. 

Acamprosate (Campral) may also help and provide a normalizing boost by re-balancing one's brain chemistry after being upset by chronic drinking. If taken as directed, three times a day for several months, it can significantly reduce anxiety and the assortment of post-acute withdrawal symptoms that make it difficult for individuals in Ypsilanti, Howell, Hartland, or South Lyon, MI to resume their everyday lives. 

And to vanquish opioid addictions, buprenorphine (Suboxone) and naltrexone can lend a helping hand. Buprenorphine is a partial opioid that blocks the effects of more potent opioids. It also has a ceiling effect, so further consumption will not lead to a more euphoric feeling, dramatically lowering the overdose risk. It also cuts cravings and withdrawal symptoms, making it much easier to quit compared to full-acting opioids. Naltrexone works in a similar way to foster independence and can help with alcohol abuse as well.
