I've only used opioids for a month, do I need treatment?

Table of Contents

If you’ve only used opioids for one month, you likely do not meet criteria for opioid use disorder—in which case, buprenorphine is not an appropriate treatment. We encourage you to establish care with a primary care provider, as well as utilize SAMHSA’s National Helpline to inquire about addiction treatment programs (geographically) near you that offer naltrexone (commonly known as Vivitrol) and overdose prevention services. 

It’s also critical that you & your loved ones have naloxone (Narcan) nearby at all times. The Bicycle Health team is happy to help you locate the services you need, and we can also help with initial prescriptions for naloxone (Narcan) and comfort medications for withdrawal.
