There are three medications commonly used to treat opioid addiction:

  • Methadone: clinic-based opioid agonist that does not block other narcotics while preventing withdrawal while taking it; daily liquid dispensed only in specialty regulated clinics.
  • Naltrexone: office-based non-addictive opioid antagonist that blocks the effects of other narcotics; daily pill or monthly injection.
  • Buprenorphine: office-based opioid agonist/antagonist that blocks other narcotics while reducing withdrawal risk; daily dissolving tablet, cheek film, or 6-month implant under the skin.
  • For information about other medication-assisted treatment (MAT) or the certification of opioid treatment programs (OTPs), contact the SAMHSA Division of Pharmacologic Therapies at 240-276-2700 or otp-extranet@opioid.samhsa.gov.
