What is a Suboxone Treatment?
Alliance Recovery Clinic offers the Suboxone treatment, a combination of two generic medications, buprenorphine and naloxone, to treat patients in Canton, Ohio who struggle with opioid addiction. Buprenorphine is an opioid with a slow metabolism and high fat solubility, permitting it to remain in the body for a long time and block other opioids from having an effect. Naloxone is an opioid antagonist that cancels out the effects of opioids when injected and often causes instant withdrawal symptoms. Suboxone is typically recommended for patients who struggle with heroin and other opiate addictions.
How is Suboxone Different?
As a partial opiate agonist, Suboxone only takes up the receptors in the brain that respond to opiates without giving patients the full high delivered by most opiates. Suboxone is generally less addictive than methadone, and the ingredient naloxone makes it difficult to intravenously abuse.
Suboxone does not have to be dispensed in a clinic, so patients do not have to continually travel to our clinic in Canton, Ohio for their treatment. As a whole, Suboxone is less addictive than methadone and has a much lower risk of fatal overdose.
