What Is Suboxone?
Suboxone is a medication that is FDA-approved to treat opioid use disorder. It must be prescribed by a physician and is known as a partial opioid agonist. You may also have heard this medication called Buprenex, Butrans, Probuphine, or Belbuca. Suboxone contains two active ingredients, buprenorphine and naloxone, which each serve different purposes. Overall, the two medications work together to combat drug cravings and reduce withdrawal symptoms.
The first ingredient, buprenorphine, is a partial opioid agonist that works to block the effects of other opioid drugs, like heroin, oxycodone, or fentanyl. So, if you try to use opioids while taking buprenorphine, it’s unlikely that you will feel any of the euphoric effects that you are seeking.
The second ingredient, naloxone, is used to reverse opioid overdoses and block the sedating effects of these drugs. This medication-assisted opioid replacement therapy is extremely useful to many individuals. In fact, Suboxone has been credited for helping thousands of people stay off of heroin and prescription opioid medications for extended periods of time—and it can work for you, too.
Suboxone is never used as a standalone treatment for opioid use disorder. Instead, it’s incorporated into heroin and other opioid addiction treatment programs alongside therapy, counseling, and other interventions. As part of a comprehensive addiction treatment program, Suboxone can promote lasting recovery.
Our Suboxone Treatment Program
Those who are in need of opiate or opioid detox might begin taking Suboxone as soon as 12 hours after their last dose of opioids. The medication then prevents severe withdrawal symptoms, making detox a much easier and safer process. Then, depending on a client’s needs, they may continue taking Suboxone as long as needed. People who experience intense cravings, have a history of relapse, or suffer from a severe opioid addiction may benefit from our Suboxone treatment program in Jeffersonville, IN.
Signs that you would benefit from Suboxone treatment include:
- You’ve relapsed after a period of sobriety
- You experience painful or uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms after you stop taking opioids
- Opioid use has negatively impacted your life
