What is a Suboxone Treatment for Opioid Addiction?
Alliance Recovery Clinic offers patients the Suboxone treatment. This treatment combines two generic medications, buprenorphine and naloxone, to treat patients in Alliance, Ohio who struggle with an opioid addiction. As an opioid with a slow metabolism and high fat solubility, buprenorphine remains in the body for an extended period of time and blocks other opioids. Naloxone is an opioid contender that cancels out the effects of opioids when it is injected. Naloxone often causes instant withdrawal symptoms. Typically, suboxone is recommended for patients who are fighting against heroin and other opiate addictions.
How is Suboxone Treatment Different?
Suboxone is a partial opiate that only takes up the receptors in the brain that reply to opiates without giving patients the full high associated with typical opiates. Suboxone is usually not as addictive as methadone, as the ingredient naloxone makes it difficult to abuse via injection.
Suboxone does not need to be dispensed in a clinic, so patients will not be required to repeatedly travel to our clinic in Alliance, Ohio for their treatment. Generally, Suboxone is less habit-forming than methadone and has a much lower risk of fatal overdose.
