Suboxone is an opiate addiction maintenance drug that’s used an as alternative to methadone in programs like our Suboxone detox Delray Beach programs. If you’re considering entering our Suboxone detox Delray Beach program, here’s what you should know about Suboxone detox.
Suboxone is a fairly new drug that contains two active ingredients, buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is an opiate drug; it’s used in Suboxone to ease opiate withdrawal symptoms. Naloxone added to keep people from abusing Suboxone they way that many people do with methadone. If you crushed up Suboxone pills and injected yourself with the drug during your Suboxone detox Delray Beach program, you’d experience full opiate withdrawal instead of a high.
Because Suboxone has a reduced potential for abuse, it’s ideal for programs like our Suboxone detox Delray Beach program. If you decide to enter our Suboxone detox Delray Beach program, you won’t have to come into a clinic every day to get your maintenance drugs. We can write you a prescription for a full month’s worth of Suboxone, and you can go home and get on with your life. We do, of course, recommend that you come into our Suboxone detox Delray Beach clinic a few times a week for addiction counseling.
There’s a dosage ceiling for Suboxone, however, so it can’t fully ease the withdrawal symptoms of severe opiate addicts. If you have a high tolerance for opiate drugs or a longstanding addiction, you may want to proceed with traditional methadone maintenance instead of entering our Suboxone detox Delray Beach program.
With Suboxone maintenance treatment, you can have freedom from cravings, withdrawal symptoms, and intoxication without having to take a short-acting maintenance drug several times a day. You can free yourself from risky behaviors and the fear of getting arrested for drug use or the criminal acts you may feel compelled to commit to support your drug use. You can get your life together – and begin tapering off Suboxone to eventually live a drug-free life. Call The Delray Center for Healing today at 1-888-699-5679 to learn more.
