Frequently Asked Questions

  • What addictions does SaVida Health treat?

    SaVida Health specializes in treating opioid and alcohol use disorders through a comprehensive approach that includes Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT), counseling, and behavioral therapies. Our dedicated team of professionals provides individualized care tailored to each patient's unique needs, ensuring the most effective path to recovery. Additionally, we continuously evaluate and adapt our services to address various substance use disorders, ensuring that our patients receive the best possible care. Always consult with a SaVida Health representative to get detailed information on the specific addictions we currently treat.

  • What is Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) and is it right for me?

    Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is an evidence-based approach to treating opioid and alcohol use disorders by combining FDA-approved medications with counseling and behavioral therapies. This comprehensive approach addresses both the physical and psychological aspects of addiction. Whether MAT is right depends on your circumstances, needs, and medical history. It's essential to consult with a healthcare professional to assess if MAT aligns with your recovery goals and ensure it's the most effective treatment option.

  • Will Suboxone cure opioid addiction?

    Suboxone is a medication used in Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) to help individuals reduce or quit their use of opioids, including heroin and prescription pain relievers. While Suboxone can be an effective tool in managing opioid addiction, it is not a "cure." Addiction is a complex, chronic condition that requires a comprehensive approach to treatment. Suboxone helps to alleviate withdrawal symptoms and cravings, making it easier for individuals to engage in counseling and behavioral therapies that address the root causes of their addiction. It's essential to understand that successful recovery often involves a combination of medication, therapy, and ongoing support.

  • Is buprenorphine safe for pregnant women?

    Buprenorphine is commonly used as a part of Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) for pregnant women with opioid use disorder. Research indicates that buprenorphine, when taken as prescribed by a healthcare professional, can be a safe and effective treatment option during pregnancy. It can help stabilize the mother's opioid levels, reducing the risk of preterm birth and other complications. However, like all medications, there are potential risks and benefits that should be discussed with a healthcare provider. It's crucial for pregnant women to work closely with their doctors to ensure the safety of both the mother and the baby. Regular prenatal care and monitoring are essential when using buprenorphine during pregnancy.

  • Do you treat co-occurring disorders?

    Yes, SaVida Health recognizes the interconnectedness of substance use disorders and mental health conditions. We offer integrated care for individuals with co-occurring disorders, ensuring that both substance use and any underlying mental health issues are addressed simultaneously. Our comprehensive approach includes assessment, individualized treatment planning, counseling, and medication management when appropriate. By treating both conditions together, we aim to provide a holistic healing experience and enhance the chances of long-term recovery and well-being. Addressing all aspects of an individual's health is essential to ensure the best possible outcomes.

  • What is the cost of your program?

    The cost of treatment at SaVida Health varies based on individual needs, the specific services provided, and insurance coverage.
