What Is Suboxone?

Suboxone is a medication that is made up of buprenorphine and naloxone. Both of these medications are used to treat opioid addiction and they work in different ways. Buprenorphine works by preventing opioids from binding to opioid receptors and it can keep individuals from feeling the effects of opioids. This can help relieve opioid withdrawal symptoms, which can be one of the roadblocks for those working to overcome addiction.

Naloxone can reverse an opioid overdose. It can help someone who has taken too much of an opioid by blocking the receptors.

While Suboxone contains opioids and can mimic their effects, it can also help those who are trying to overcome a physical dependence on heroin or prescription medications. Suboxone is different from methadone in that it cannot be taken for as long. Methadone can be taken for several years and most doctors recommend that clients take it for at least 12 months. However, Suboxone is typically taken for six to 12 months.

Benefits of Suboxone

You should always take Suboxone under the direction of a doctor. They will be able to determine and prescribe the right dose of suboxone for your unique needs. However, those who are stable and have shown progress in an addiction treatment program can receive a prescription to take Suboxone at home.

Some of the benefits of Suboxone as part of an addiction treatment program include:

  • Suboxone reduces cravings for other opioids
  • It can minimize painful or uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms of opioid use disorder
  • Suboxone blocks the effects of any high that an individual might feel from other opioids
  • It can prevent overdose deaths

At Lotus Recovery Centers, Suboxone treatment is just one part of a comprehensive treatment assistance program.

Suboxone Treatment at Lotus Recovery Centers

Your journey to recovery begins during detox, which is when opiates will leave your system. This can lead to painful or uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. Suboxone can help during this time to help relieve withdrawal symptoms.

During treatment, we also require our clients to participate in both group and individual therapy sessions. During therapy, clients work through the underlying causes of addiction such as mental health issues and past trauma. We offer a wide range of therapies like family therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy to help clients address addiction’s effects on every part of their lives.
