Suboxone

Opioid dependence—addiction to opioid prescription painkillers such as OxyContin®, Vicodin®, Percocet®, or to heroin—can reset the brain’s chemistry to think the drug is necessary for your survival. When your brain tells you that you can’t live without a drug, it can quickly lead to uncontrolled drug-seeking behavior. If you’re working to overcome opioid dependence or addiction, you know the challenge can be very overwhelming. Suboxone (Buprenorphine and Naloxone) can help and is a less-painful method than quiting "cold turkey".

What is Suboxone? Suboxone is a prescription only drug that is taken to help block the opiate receptors in the brain. This helps decrease cravings, suppress withdrawal symptoms and helps in resetting the brain. It can help in the process of getting clean so that it is less overwhelming. Suboxone is used for detoxification, short-term and long-term maintenance treatment of people who are opiate dependent. It is very safe and effective if used according to the doctor's advice.

Opioid dependence is a medical condition, when treated effectively with medication-assisted treatment can combined with counseling and support. It is important to not let shame or stigma get in the way of getting the help you need. People with other chronic medical conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease benefit from medical treatment combined with behavioral changes. The same is true for opioid dependence. 

        What can Suboxone do for you?
 
  • Gives you the opportunity to be treated in privacy/confidentiality of a Dr.'s office
  • Avoid repeated visits to Hospital or Clinic
  • Allows more time for Family, work, school and other activities
  • Move you towards your goal of getting clean and regaining control of your life

    As a medical condition, opioid dependence carries a high risk of relapse. To learn how to manage this risk, plan to make a commitment to ongoing treatment, including counseling. Since everyone is different, the treatment plan can be tailored to your individual needs. Length of treatment varies and can last anywhere from weeks to years depending on what you and your health care provider decide is best for you.
