If you’re considering entering an opiate detox and addiction treatment program, you’re probably worried about how disruptive the treatment program will be to your daily life. If you have a family or a job, you probably don’t want to leave home for weeks, or even months, to go to treatment. The good news is, with an outpatient detox program, you don’t have to.
Starting an Outpatient Detox Program
When you enter our outpatient detox program with Suboxone, you’ll come in for your initial consultation in full withdrawal. It is very important that you come to your initial visit with Dr. Rodriguez in full withdrawal. That way, Dr. Rodriguez can be sure to give you a Suboxone dosage that will adequately manage your withdrawal symptoms.
You’ll receive an initial dosage and then wait until it takes effect. You’ll then describe any lingering withdrawal symptoms and your dosage will be adjusted. Once we’re confident in your dosage, you’ll be given a prescription and sent home.
How Our Outpatient Detox Program Works
The beauty of our outpatient detox program is that you don’t have to report to a methadone clinic every day to receive your medication. Suboxone has a built-in ceiling, meaning you can’t use it to get high by taking more of it than you were prescribed. This means that you’re allowed to keep up to 30 days worth of the medication in your home. Your dose will gradually be lowered so that eventually, you can stop taking maintenance drugs altogether and be truly free of addiction.
When you enroll in our outpatient detox program, you won’t have to drive long distances to get to a methadone clinic and compromise your dignity and privacy in order to get your medication. You’ll be able to keep going to work as normal, without worrying about scheduling your methadone maintenance program around your work schedule (which can be impossible, especially since methadone clinics aren’t exactly conveniently located). You’ll be able to go on business trips, weekend getaways and family vacations without worrying about missing your medication and going into withdrawals. No one will ever need to know that you are going through opiate addiction treatment.
Don’t let opiate addiction rule your life any longer. Call The Delray Center for Healing today at 1-888-699-5679 to learn more about our outpatient detox program.
