Suboxone is a medication that is used to treat opioid addiction. It has helped countless people get their lives back on track, and has been widely regarded as one of the most effective treatments for opioid addiction in the United States. If you are considering Suboxone treatment, there are some things to know before starting your journey with this medication. In this blog post we will discuss 7 great things to know if you're considering Suboxone treatment!
Suboxone is a medication that can help people who are addicted to opiate drugs, such as heroin, morphine, and oxycodone.
Suboxone binds tightly with the same receptors in the brain as other opiates, which makes it hard for people on Suboxone to use any other drugs. It also keeps them from craving them.
Suboxone, along with psychotherapy sessions and support groups, can help people understand their triggers so they can avoid them as best as possible.
Suboxone is widely used for medication-assisted therapy (MAT) for opiate addiction.
It has been shown that using MATs will lower the risk of a fatal overdose by 50%.
Suboxone is a combination medication, containing buprenorphine and naloxone.
Suboxone is taken daily and can be self-administered orally where it dissolves under your tongue. We also offer Sublocade as a treatment for those who would rather take a monthly medication administered in our clinic.
