Office-Based Opioid Treatment

Louisiana OBOT Services 

New Way Recovery in Louisiana, as a leading addiction treatment center, offers Office-Based Opioid Treatment (OBOT) services to address opioid use disorder. OBOT is a comprehensive approach to treating opioid addiction, providing individuals with a supportive and accessible environment for recovery.  

Suboxone is typically used as part of a comprehensive treatment approach known as Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT). MAT combines the use of medications like Suboxone with counseling and behavioral therapies to provide a holistic approach to treating opioid addiction. It can help individuals manage withdrawal symptoms, reduce cravings, and increase the chances of successful recovery. Suboxone is usually administered in a controlled medical setting, and the treatment is closely monitored by healthcare professionals. Suboxone contains two active ingredients:  


  • Buprenorphine: This is a partial opioid agonist, meaning it binds to the same receptors in the brain that opioids (such as heroin or prescription painkillers) bind to. However, buprenorphine has a unique property – it only partially activates these receptors. This partial activation helps to reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms without producing the intense euphoria associated with full opioid agonists. 
  • Naloxone: This component is included to discourage misuse of Suboxone. Naloxone is an opioid antagonist, meaning it can block the effects of opioids. If someone tries to misuse Suboxone by injecting it, the naloxone component becomes active and can precipitate withdrawal symptoms, making the misuse less appealing. 


At New Way Recovery, OBOT services go beyond medication management, encompassing a holistic treatment plan. Patients benefit from personalized care plans tailored to their specific needs, which may include counseling, therapy, and support groups. The compassionate and experienced staff at New Day Recovery understands the challenges individuals face in overcoming opioid addiction and strives to create a supportive and non-judgmental atmosphere. The OBOT services at New Way Recovery aim not only to address the physical aspects of addiction but also to support patients in rebuilding their lives and achieving lasting recovery. 

By offering OBOT services, New Way Recovery in Louisiana aligns with best practices in addiction treatment, making essential care more accessible to those in need. This approach contributes to breaking down barriers to treatment, promoting long-term recovery, and helping individuals regain control of their lives.
