Suboxone Treatment FAQ
Breaking the cycle of opiate abuse and/or opiate addiction is made easier with medication-assisted treatment. Advances in science have made this process much safer, less painful and more successful.
As part of our Medically Assisted Treatment options, we offer clients who are looking to withdraw from opiates the use of Suboxone, a medication that assists in stopping withdrawal symptoms from opiate drugs such as Vicodin, heroin, codeine, morphine, fentanyl, and OxyContin.
Medication-Assisted Treatment is a low-cost option when compared to the high cost of continued illegal drug use, inpatient or residential treatment, or the high relapse rates associated with programs that do not work for the individual.
Suboxone? C-III (buprenorphine HCI/naloxone HCI dehydrate sublingual tablets) is a medicine that, together with counseling, is approved to treat opioid dependence.
Suboxone minimizes withdrawal symptoms, decreases cravings, and partially blocks the effects of other opioids.
Suboxone (buprenophine) attaches to opioid receptors and partially blocks the effects of other opioids. What makes Suboxone (buprenophine) unique and valuable in addiction treatment is that it is a partial agonist. With daily maintenance doses, Suboxone (buprenorphine) assists in keeping the brain?s opioid receptors occupied to help reduce cravings, withdrawal symptoms and block the effects of other opioids.
When Suboxone (buprenorphine) moves onto the opioid receptors in a dependent patient?s brain, it does three important things.
- First, by binding to the brain’s opioid receptors, Suboxone satisfies the dependent person’s need for an opioid. This suppresses withdrawal symptoms and drug cravings.
- Second, Suboxone sticks to the brain’s receptors so that other opioids have great difficulty attaching, and it remains on the receptors for several days.
- Finally, although all opioids lower breathing, when Suboxone is taken alone and as directed, it has an upper limit on how much it does this. This limitation is because buprenorphine is a partial agonist.
