“I called three clinics because I was in a bad state. The first two said they could take me next week. Symetria said to come in ASAP. They dropped everything to help me. I felt 100% better and still do.”

Everyone that comes here has tried to “just stop” on their own – usually many times. You’re reading this page because it hasn’t worked. Maybe rehabs and other clinics have failed you too. Know that things are different here.
You don’t have to commit to staying sober forever. You just have to make the call and show up.
Yes, study-after-study proves outpatient treatment is just as effective as inpatient rehab. In fact, Harvard statisticians say you’re 80% more likely to be healthy in two years if you choose Symetria (compared to any other treatment option). That’s pretty powerful stuff.
No. Suboxone is a partial opioid, so it fits enough to satisfy the opioid receptor in the brain, but not enough to trigger a high. Vivitrol doesn’t fit into the opioid receptor at all, but blocks it off to prevent a high if substances are used.
Suboxone is FDA-approved only for opioid addictions. Vivitrol is also FDA-approved and a great choice for those early in opioid addiction. But, Vivitrol is also FDA-approved and a first choice medication for alcohol, crack and meth addictions. (These substances indirectly interact with opioid receptors even though they are not opioids).
Suboxone is given in the form of films placed under the tongue daily. Vivitrol is given monthly at the clinic as a shot.
The side effects of buprenorphine (Suboxone) are nothing like the withdrawal symptoms from the abused drugs. Most patients come in “dope sick” and feel much better after taking the medication. The side effects you experience from opioids like heroin, Oxycodone or Vicodin can still happen with Suboxone, but are usually considerably milder. The most common are headache, diarrhea, constipation and nausea.
Methadone is used to treat severe opiate addiction. But, less than 10% of opioid patients at the Fort Worth clinic choose the Methadone program. It has to be taken at the clinic every day. So, Methadone is generally for those who have done well on it before or have not done well on Suboxone. Suboxone is a better, easier choice for most opioid addictions.
Like most counties in the U.S., fatal overdose numbers are higher in Tarrant County than they were 10 years ago. The opioid problem here may be less prominent than in other U.S. cities, but still equates to more than half a million people using illicit drugs last year. Although, it’s not opioids but meth that the DEA ranks as the biggest threat to the Dallas-Fort Worth area. And, the alcohol binge rate for Tarrant County is higher than the national average.
Regardless of the substance, addiction destroys families and impacts the larger community. We live in Tarrant County too and want you to know that there are people here to help.
