Opioid Addiction Treatment
What is Suboxone?
If you are nervous about stopping your drug use because you've tried a number of times, but the withdrawal symptoms were intense and painful, you should understand that you are not alone.
SUBOXONE Film is a medication approved by the FDA used to treat adults who are addicted to opioids. The goal for the use of Suboxone is to stop the symptoms of withdrawal from opioids and help people stay in treatment.
Opioids are a class of drugs that include the illicit drug heroin as well as legal prescription pain relievers oxycodone, hydrocodone, codeine, morphine, fentanyl and others.
These drugs interact with opioid receptors on nerve cells in the brain to produce pleasurable effects and relieve pain.
Drug detox is an important first step and is vital to any drug and alcohol treatment program. It is the process of cleansing toxins from the body and stabilizing health. Detox eliminates physical dependence on drugs making it possible to begin treatment.
It is essential for our patients to complete this first step before beginning any type of long-term treatment for addiction.
