What is medication-assisted treatment?

"Medication-Assisted Treatment" is a commonly used but outdated way of referring to treatment for opioid use disorder (opioid dependence with addiction). Medical treatment with either buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone), methadone, or naltrexone (Vivitrol) is highly effective first-line treatment that reduces opioid withdrawal, cravings, and overdose risk. Of the three effective options, buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) can be provided through an online relationship with a Bicycle Health medical provider.

Treatment with buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) is NOT replacing one addiction with another. To learn more, check out our related article here.

Benefits of MAT

Medical treatment is critical to prevent overdose and death. Research shows that with MAT, 75% of patients will still be in recovery one year later. Conversely, studies demonstrate that within one month of stopping buprenorphine treatment, more than 50% of patients relapse to illicit opioid use. 

Suboxone helps patients to feel normal and healthy. When taken as prescribed by a medical provider, it treats opioid dependence/addiction and does not cause the negative impacts of uncontrolled substance use on one’s life, goals, and health.

My life has improved 100%. I can deal with the ups and downs, am rarely depressed, don’t have a lot of anxiety, and have my energy back. I feel like a normal person again. My family has noticed the change in me, and they love it. The biggest thing, though, is that I have had ZERO cravings for opioids, and that is a miracle.

Why Suboxone?

Suboxone is safe

Buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) is widely considered to be safer than methadone and has a lower risk for sedation and overdose when taken as prescribed.

Buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) is widely considered to be safer than methadone and has a lower risk for sedation and overdose when taken as prescribed.

Suboxone is effective

The recommended effective dose is well-known and can be safely reached within 1-2 days for most patients, whereas effective methadone dosing varies unpredictably from person-to-person and may take weeks to achieve.

Suboxone is easily Available

Buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) can be prescribed by licensed and trained medical providers in any treatment setting, whereas methadone is strictly regulated and can only be provided through federally and state licensed opioid treatment programs. Care at such programs is highly standardized which limits individualization of treatment.

How does Bicycle Health work?

Schedule an appointment with an enrollment coordinator

You’ll first meet with an experienced enrollment coordinator who will learn more about you, your experience with opioid use, and your health goals. Our enrollment coordinators can answer any questions you might have about our online Suboxone clinic so you can ensure our program is a good fit for you. All visits are confidential, including this first screening visit.

Provider visits via phone & video calls

Following your appointment with the enrollment coordinator, you’ll be scheduled for your first telehealth visit with your medical provider. During your first medical provider visit, your provider will learn more about you and collaboratively develop a personalized treatment plan for your opioid use disorder. Most patients are prescribed buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) during their first provider visit.

Prescription refills

Your buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) prescription will be sent electronically to a pharmacy near you. This prescription will be refilled during weekly, biweekly, or monthly telehealth visits with your Bicycle Health provider.

Behavioral health resources

Research shows that treatment for opioid use disorder is most successful in conjunction with mental health supports. Here at Bicycle Health, we offer online support groups, which serve as safe, confidential spaces to meet with others who are also in recovery. Patients also work with dedicated health coaches who assist with behavioral health needs, and our medical providers are trained to prescribe treatment for common mental health conditions, like depression and anxiety.

One of the things I love about Bicycle Health is the ability to use telemedicine to communicate with my doctor. Appointments can take place anywhere I am: at work, when I’m out of town, even in my bed at home! I am so grateful for the compassionate care I’ve received from Bicycle Health.

I was introduced to Medication Assisted Treatment and it changed my life. Bicycle health was very helpful, supportive and assisted me without judgement. Now I feel I have a reason to live, have hopes for the future and finally feel relatively happy. I have not known happiness as long as I can remember.

They care so much. They take the time to meet with you throughout the week to see how your treatment is affecting you personally. They care to find what works best for your body and your recovery. I have taken my life back. I have control over my finances again, I can get in touch with my emotions again and I am no longer hating myself at the end of the day. I’m happier and healthier all around.
