  • Trilogy Wellness FAQ's

    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS What insurances are accepted? ​ We accept all major insurances, including Medicaid and Medicare. Copays are due at the time of service. If you do not have insurance, please call our office to discuss available payment options. ​ Am I eligible for Medicaid if I have a job? ​ Yes. Opioid Use Disorder is a diagnosis for which patients require “health sustaining medication” This qualifies patients on MAT for Medicaid. If your income is above the Medicaid income limits, you must apply for “modified” Medicaid. It is known as MAWD online (Medicaid for Workers with Disabilities). You can apply by following the online instructions after searching for PA MAWD. There is a very small monthly premium for MAWD. Patients on MAWD enjoy the usual benefits of Medicaid. ​ What is Suboxone? ​ Suboxone is the brand name for the combination product of buprenorphine and naloxone, used in the treatment of Opioid Use Disorder. Suboxone is not used for Alcohol Abuse Disorder (Vivitrol injection may be used for both). Buprenorphine is the active ingredient in Suboxone, Zubsolv, and Sublocade. Buprenorphine acts as a “place holder” in the brain for the opioid requirement experienced by individuals who are physically dependent on opioids. While occupying opioid receptors in the brain, buprenorphine eliminates cravings and withdrawal symptoms, thereby decreasing or eliminating drug-seeking behavior. This is how Suboxone is instrumental in helping those suffering from Opioid Use Disorder to recover. The naloxone in Suboxone is not absorbed well orally and is present to help prevent diversion by injection. ​ What are the forms of Suboxone? ​ Suboxone, the combination product, is available as a sublingual film or sublingual tablet. The mono-product (buprenorphine only) is available as a subcutaneous abdominal injection. A second mono-product, Subutex, has been formerly used during pregnancy, but is not a recommended medication at Trilogy now that it has been established that Suboxone may be taken safely during pregnancy. Note: patients claiming an “allergy” to the naloxone in Suboxone will be referred for Sublocade treatment primarily. Individual cases will be provider discretion. ​ If I take Suboxone, am I just trading one addiction for another? ​ No! Addiction involves drug-seeking behavior and other dysfunctional behaviors that severely affect an individual’s health and safety, quality of life, and interpersonal relationships. Suboxone stops addiction. It does this by eliminating cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Suboxone does not cause euphoria or a “high” and is a relatively safe medication with minor side effects. Please ask your provider for details on exactly how Suboxone works. How do I take Suboxone….can I just swallow it? ​ Suboxone is not absorbed well orally and therefore must be absorbed directly into the vein under your tongue. This is called SL, or “sublingual administration” which means “under the tongue”. If Suboxone film OR tablet is swallowed, it will not be absorbed into the bloodstream and therefore will not be effective. Proper administration is very important for Suboxone to relieve cravings and stop withdrawal symptoms. Your Trilogy provider will discuss this with you. ​ Can I get brand name Suboxone? ​ It is unlikely that your insurance will cover the brand medication without evidence of serious adverse effects, especially since several generic forms are now available. When patients dislike the films, often changing to the tablet form is helpful. Another option is injectable Sublocade. ​ What does it mean to get “dopesick”? ​ The term “dopesick” is street terminology for the phenomenon of precipitated withdrawal. Precipitated withdrawal occurs when a buprenorphine product such as Suboxone is taken after an individual has also taken another opioid, whether prescription or illicit. The buprenorphine in Suboxone will rapidly displace the other opioid; when this occurs, the individual will experience a very severe and sometimes life-threatening form of withdrawal. This is why it is important for our patients to have transparency regarding what drugs or medications that they have taken, and when, before Suboxone treatment is begun. This is also why your provider must see your toxicology screen results prior to initiating Suboxone. ​ What is Sublocade? ​ Sublocade is an injectable form of buprenorphine, the active ingredient in Suboxone. Sublocade offers patients the opportunity to receive a monthly, slow-release medication. It eliminates the need for daily self-dosing of Suboxone. Sublocade is injected into the subcutaneous tissue of the abdomen. It is covered by insurance. ​ What if I need a higher dose of Suboxone than I was given? ​ If you feel that your Suboxone dose is not right, it is important that you discuss this with your provider. There are many factors that can increase cravings or result in mild withdrawal symptoms. Factors such as inappropriate administration, incorrect dosing intervals, continued association with known triggers, and an increase in overall stress due to family or work issues may all contribute to a sense that the Suboxone is not working well. The standard dose of Suboxone is 16mg per day and there is no empiric evidence that higher doses are required or make a significant difference in the opioid-receptor occupation that the standard dose provides, ​ If I am currently taking Methadone can I change over to Suboxone? ​ Yes. Patients may convert to Suboxone after Methadone use. However, the Methadone clinic must reduce your daily dose to no higher than 30mg per day before this can be done safely. Your Trilogy provider cannot decrease the Methadone dose. Depending upon your Methadone dose, it may take several weeks for your dose to be decreased enough for you to be able to start Suboxone. ​ Is therapy required for me to receive MAT? ​ Therapy is well-documented as a helpful adjunct to MAT for recovery from Substance Use Disorder. At Trilogy, we highly recommend that our patients participate in either mental health therapy or drug-and-alcohol therapy. We hope to incorporate on-site therapy at our Trilogy offices in the future. ​ Can my ADHD be treated while I am taking Suboxone? ​ Yes. It is optimal to treat ADHD as part of a recovery program with Suboxone. However, if stimulant medication is going to be used it must be one of the long-acting preparations (e.g. Adderall XR instead of Adderall). You can not receive MAT at Trilogy if you are taking Adderall or Ritalin. Those patients presenting with prescriptions for these medications will be given time to have their medication changed to a long-acting stimulant. ​ Will Trilogy prescribe my other medications? ​ No. Trilogy providers will prescribe your MAT medication only. We can not assume the role of your PCP or psychiatrist. You must obtain other medications from these other providers. ​ Do I need Narcan and where can I get it? ​ Yes. Narcan, the “rescue medication” for opioid overdose, should be accessible to anyone participating in MAT for Opioid Use Disorder. There is an “open” prescription available at most pharmacies, through the state, for anyone requesting Narcan and for those receiving Suboxone prescriptions. Your Trilogy provider can also provide a Narcan script. ​ If I have Alcohol Abuse Disorder can I still get MAT for my Opioid Use Disorder with Suboxone? ​ Yes. However, if you struggle with Alcohol Use Disorder and currently consume excessive amounts of alcohol, it will be necessary for you to also participate in an alcohol recovery program including therapy. Consuming large amounts of alcohol while taking Suboxone poses a risk for respiratory depression and death, therefore we cannot provide Suboxone in these cases without active progress towards sobriety. Vivitrol injection, one of the MAT medications offered at Trilogy, is a recommended treatment for our OUD patients who also struggle with alcohol abuse. Ask your provider about how Vivitrol can help with alcohol abuse disorder. ​ How often will I have to come to clinic for my MAT? ​ New patients are seen every two weeks for at least two months to assure stability. Once a patient has shown good progress in their recovery, they may come to clinic on a monthly basis. Patients receiving Sublocade and Vivitrol injections attend monthly. Visit frequency is related to toxicology results. Occasionally, patients who are struggling with their sobriety will be asked to attend clinic weekly. ​ Can my Hepatitis C be treated at Trilogy? ​ Currently, Hepatitis C is not treated at Trilogy. If your screening bloodwork is positive, you will be referred to your PCP or a liver specialist for treatment. ​ What if I have surgery and am taking Suboxone? ​ If you have an upcoming surgery or dental procedure, your provider will discuss our recommendations on Suboxone use in the perioperative period. Trilogy providers do not provide pre-or-post surgery opioid medication. ​ Can I take Suboxone if I have dentures? ​ Yes. Many of our patients have dentures and can take their Suboxone films or tablets. Often, it is easier to take Suboxone if the dentures are removed but this is not necessarily required. Discuss any questions you may have with your Trilogy provider. ​

Suboxone, a medication combining buprenorphine and naloxone, is designed to alleviate withdrawal symptoms and cravings, making it an integral component of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) programs. Suboxone, also known as buprenorphine is defined by the substance abuse and mental health services administration {SAMHSA} as: "Buprenorphine is the first medication to treat opioid use disorder (OUD) that can be prescribed or dispensed in physician offices, significantly increasing access to treatment. As with all medications used in treatment, buprenorphine should be prescribed as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that includes counseling and other services to provide patients with a whole-person approach." The opioid epidemic has significantly impacted Butler, with rising rates of opioid-related deaths over the years. Suboxone, as part of MAT, has become a cornerstone in addressing this crisis. MAT utilizes medications like Suboxone in conjunction with counseling and behavioral therapies to provide a comprehensive approach to addiction treatment. Buprenorphine, a partial opioid agonist, attaches to the same receptors in the brain as other opioids, reducing cravings without inducing the same level of euphoria. Naloxone, on the other hand, is included to discourage misuse. If someone attempts to inject Suboxone, the naloxone component can precipitate withdrawal symptoms, discouraging the misuse of the medication. The accessibility of Suboxone in Butler has played a pivotal role in expanding treatment options for those in need. Physicians who are certified to prescribe Suboxone can provide this medication to patients in various settings. Trilogy Wellness in Butler is one of those able to prescribe this medication. This increased availability helps bridge gaps in access to addiction treatment, allowing individuals to receive the care they need in their local communities. Moreover, the use of Suboxone in Butler has demonstrated positive outcomes in terms of reducing opioid cravings and preventing relapse. When combined with counseling and support services, Suboxone provides individuals with the tools they need to regain control of their lives and work towards sustained recovery. In Butler, efforts are underway to integrate Suboxone into a broader strategy that includes prevention, intervention, and ongoing support. Local healthcare providers, addiction specialists, and community organizations collaborate to ensure that Suboxone is administered responsibly and that individuals receiving this medication have access to the necessary support systems. In conclusion, Suboxone has become a crucial asset in addressing the opioid epidemic in Butler, Pennsylvania. As part of MAT programs, Suboxone offers a pathway to recovery by alleviating withdrawal symptoms and reducing cravings. While challenges exist, ongoing efforts in community education and responsible prescribing practices contribute to the overall effectiveness of Suboxone in supporting individuals on their journey to sustained recovery in Butler and beyond.

Drug Addiction in Butler, PA {The Problem} Drug addiction is an issue that affects communities across the United States, and Butler, Pennsylvania, is no exception. In recent years, the city has grappled with the challenges posed by drug abuse, with statistics painting a concerning picture of the extent of the problem. According to data from the Butler County Coroner's Office, there has been a noticeable rise in drug-related deaths in the region over the past decade. The opioid epidemic, in particular, has taken a toll on the community, with prescription painkillers and illicit opioids like heroin contributing to a significant number of fatalities. In 2010, Butler County recorded over 15 drug-related deaths. By 2020, that number had more than tripled, highlighting the escalating nature of the crisis. These statistics not only indicate the severity of the problem but also underscore the urgent need for comprehensive strategies to address drug addiction in the area. Trilogy provides MAT services at it's office in Lyndora, PA to help combat this disease. One of the factors contributing to the drug epidemic in Butler is the easy accessibility of prescription medications. The misuse of prescription opioids often serves as a gateway to more potent and dangerous substances. Healthcare providers and law enforcement agencies in the region are increasingly recognizing the importance of monitoring and controlling the prescription of these medications to curb their misuse. Furthermore, the landscape of Butler plays a role in the prevalence of drug addiction. Unemployment rates, poverty, and lack of access to educational opportunities can contribute to a sense of hopelessness and despair, driving individuals towards substance abuse as a coping mechanism. Community organizations and local government agencies have been actively working to address the issue. Treatment and rehabilitation programs have been expanded to provide support for those struggling with addiction. These programs aim not only to help individuals overcome their substance abuse but also to address the underlying issues that may have led to addiction in the first place. Prevention efforts have also gained momentum in Butler. Educational campaigns in schools and communities aim to raise awareness about the risks of drug abuse and provide resources for individuals and families facing addiction. Community leaders are advocating for increased access to mental health services and counseling to address the emotional and psychological aspects of addiction. Law enforcement agencies are also playing a crucial role in combating drug addiction in Butler. Strategic initiatives focus on disrupting the supply chain of illicit substances, targeting drug traffickers, and implementing community policing efforts to build trust between law enforcement and the community. Additionally, diversion programs aim to channel non-violent offenders with substance abuse issues towards treatment instead of incarceration. While progress has been made in addressing drug addiction in Butler, there is still much work to be done. The city continues to grapple with the challenges posed by a changing landscape of drug abuse, including the emergence of new synthetic substances. The county hosts Drug and Alcohol programs available to residents. Ongoing collaboration between community organizations, government agencies, and healthcare providers is essential to creating a comprehensive and sustainable approach to tackling drug addiction in the region. In conclusion, drug addiction remains a significant concern in Butler, Pennsylvania, with rising statistics indicating the severity of the issue. The community is actively engaged in implementing a multi-faceted approach that includes prevention, treatment, and law enforcement efforts to address the root causes and consequences of drug abuse. Through continued collaboration and a commitment to comprehensive strategies, Butler aims to build a healthier and more resilient community for its residents. Trilogy Wellness Staff Team

OUD Treatment Options {Opioid Use Disorder} Opioid use disorder (OUD) remains a top public health concern, affecting communities across the world. As the opioid epidemic continues to unravel, the importance of effective and comprehensive treatment options has never been more crucial. This article covers various treatment modalities available for individuals struggling with OUD. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is a widely recognized and evidence-based approach to managing opioid addiction. MAT combines FDA-approved medications with counseling and behavioral therapies to provide a holistic treatment plan. The medications used in MAT help alleviate withdrawal symptoms, reduce cravings, and normalize brain function without producing the euphoria associated with the abused opioid. Common Medications in MAT: Methadone : A full opioid agonist, methadone activates the same receptors in the brain as other opioids, preventing withdrawal symptoms and cravings. It is often administered in specialized clinics. Buprenorphine: A partial opioid agonist, buprenorphine helps in reducing cravings and withdrawal symptoms while having a lower potential for abuse. Suboxone, a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone, is commonly prescribed. Naltrexone: An opioid receptor antagonist, naltrexone blocks the effects of opioids and is available in oral and extended-release injectable formulations. Sublocade - A New Option: Sublocade , a newer addition to MAT options. It offers a unique and extended-release formulation of buprenorphine. Administered through a monthly injection, Sublocade provides a steady release of medication, eliminating the need for daily oral dosing. This characteristic addresses issues of medication adherence, ensuring a consistent therapeutic effect. Sublocade is approved by the FDA . Sublocade simplifies the treatment process for individuals with OUD by providing a sustained release of buprenorphine, which helps in preventing relapse and promoting long-term recovery. The convenience and reduced frequency of administration can be particularly beneficial for individuals with busy lifestyles or those struggling with adherence to daily medications. Sublocade contains buprenorphine, a partial opioid agonist with a high affinity for opioid receptors. However, unlike full agonists, such as heroin or methadone, buprenorphine's effects plateau at a certain dose, reducing the risk of overdose and abuse. When administered as a monthly injection, Sublocade forms a gel depot under the skin, gradually releasing buprenorphine over the course of a month. We offer Sublocade at all of Trilogy locations . Benefits of Sublocade: Reduced Stigma: The monthly injection format of Sublocade minimizes the visibility of treatment, reducing potential stigma associated with opioid addiction. Improved Adherence: The extended-release nature of Sublocade ensures that individuals receive a consistent dose, addressing issues related to medication adherence. Prevention of Diversion: The formulation of Sublocade makes it less susceptible to diversion or misuse, as the medication is administered as a healthcare professional-monitored injection. Stabilized Treatment: Sublocade helps stabilize individuals in treatment, reducing the risk of relapse and providing a foundation for ongoing recovery. MAT, including Sublocade, is most effective when combined with behavioral therapies. Counseling, therapy, and support groups play a crucial role in addressing the psychological aspects of addiction, helping individuals develop coping mechanisms, and providing a supportive environment for recovery. In Summary The battle against opioid use disorder, a comprehensive and individualized approach to treatment is essential. MAT, with its array of medications, has proven to be a cornerstone in addressing the physical aspects of addiction. Sublocade, as an innovative extended-release option, offers additional benefits in terms of convenience, reduced stigma, and improved adherence. As the field of addiction medicine continues to evolve, ongoing research and a commitment to understanding the unique needs of individuals with OUD will contribute to refining and expanding treatment options. Ultimately, the goal is to empower individuals to reclaim their lives from the chains of opioid addiction, opening the doorway to a sustained recovery and healthy sober life.
