A Suboxone program is a safe and effective way to manage opiate withdrawal symptoms and eventually stop taking opiates altogether. This drug, which gained FDA approval for use in the United States in 2002, contains a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine activates the opioid receptors in the brain to ease withdrawal symptoms. Naloxone prevents the drug from being overused, by causing withdrawal symptoms if the drug is used incorrectly.
Let’s take a look at some of the advantages of a Suboxone program.
You Can Do a Suboxone Program in the Privacy of Your Own Home
The ingredient naloxone, which causes withdrawal symptoms to occur quickly if Suboxone is misused, is included in the drug to keep people in Suboxone programs from abusing their drugs. This built-in deterrent makes it possible to use Suboxone in the same way that you would use any other medication, in the privacy of your own home.
A Suboxone Program Doesn’t Disrupt Your Daily Life or Schedule
You don’t need to go away to rehab or stay in a hospital before beginning a Suboxone program. You don’t have to make a special trip to a clinic every day in order to obtain your daily dose of Suboxone, and you don’t have to rearrange your whole life around making that daily trip. You can obtain a Suboxone prescription in the privacy of a doctor’s office, take the medication home, and use it as directed without constant supervision. That means you have more time for your family, you don’t have to worry about your opiate maintenance program affecting your job, and you can even go out of town if you want.
Suboxone Programs Are Effective
Studies show that a Suboxone program is far more effective than opiate detox and addiction treatment without the use of maintenance drugs. Suboxone will control your withdrawal symptoms and help you keep a clear head – no more yo-yoing from intoxication to agonizing pain. You can start getting your life back in order the same day your program starts.
