At Landmark, ultimate discretion of what medications to use during treatment lies with our Medical Director. As such, we cannot guarantee which specific medications will be used, although we will do whatever necessary to ensure detoxification and the remainder of the patient’s stay is safe and comfortable.

Typically, most Opiate users will be placed onto a 9 day buprenorphine taper. This prescription, often known by its brand name, Suboxone, helps alleviate opiate cravings and reduce withdrawal pains. By day 9 of treatment, the need for the medication subsides, and the patient is taken off of the medication. By the end of treatment, recovering Opiate users are encouraged to receive a shot of Vivitrol, a non-addicting medication that blocks opiate receptors in the brain and therefore prevents the patient from being able to get high. Landmark will gladly arrange for patients to receive this shot, and will follow up with patients post discharge to ensure continued compliance.

Protocol for patients withdrawing from other substances varies considerably based on the patient’s usage and medical histories. For more specific information, feel free to contact the facility.

At Landmark Recovery, we believe that high quality treatment

Should be standard for both individuals and family. Our team of highly qualified staff members will implement the
resources needed to help people begin the process of healing.
