What is Suboxone Medication and How Can It Help With Opioid Addiction Recovery?

Suboxone can be used as part of a comprehensive opioid addiction treatment program that may also include counseling, behavioral therapy, and loved ones' support. Suboxone can help people who are addicted to opioids stabilize their lives and make positive changes by reducing withdrawal symptoms and cravings. It can also lower the risk of overdose and improve overall recovery progress.

Suboxone should only be prescribed and used under the supervision of a licensed healthcare provider as part of a comprehensive treatment plan.

Suboxone is a prescription opioid addiction treatment medication. Buprenorphine and naloxone are the active ingredients. Buprenorphine is a partial opioid agonist that helps to relieve opioid withdrawal symptoms and cravings, whereas naloxone is an opioid antagonist that blocks the effects of other opioids and discourages abuse.

I've been to 5 other suboxone clinics excluding this one, and NONE is close to being as amazing as this one. Treatment doesn't get more convenient and comfortable than these guys. I sincerely have not one negative comment to give.

addiction specialists Online Suboxone Doctors in Tennessee

Stage 1: Induction

This is the first stage of treatment, in which the individual is given a low dose of Suboxone to help manage withdrawal symptoms and cravings. The goal of this stage is to stabilize the individual and assist them in transitioning to the next stage. Induction stages will require weekly visits and can be completed via telemedicine under the close supervision of certified suboxone doctors and addiction specialists.
Myths About Using Suboxone To Treat Opioid Addiction

Stage 2: Stabilization

The process of achieving a stable state of health and well-being for the individual with opioid use disorder is referred to as stabilization in Suboxone treatment. This usually includes managing withdrawal symptoms, reducing cravings, and establishing a stable Suboxone dose. Stabilization is done biweekly, or twice a month. Counseling should be done more frequently. Patients can schedule sessions based on their individual counseling needs and requests.

Stage 3: Maintenance

Patients can self-manage Suboxone for up to four weeks at a time. The maintenance phase of Suboxone treatment typically includes 1 monthly medical provider visit, 1 counselor visit, and d rug tests. Suboxone maintenance can be very successful if the patient is consistent with appointments and counseling. The key benefits of Suboxone maintenance include a significantly lower risk of relapse.

Suboxone treatment is most effective when combined with behavioral therapies and support from family, friends, and community resources. Suboxone treatment success is determined by the individual’s commitment to recovery and willingness to follow the treatment plan. 

Most insurance companies cover telemedicine Suboxone. Tenncare (Medicaid), which will pay for the full cost of treatment for Tennessee residents with TennCare Insurance.


Telemedicine suboxone eliminates the need for in-person visits, making it easier for patients to participate in treatment plans

Frequently Asked Questions

Online Suboxone Treatment - Opioid Addiction Treatment using phone

All major US government health organizations (SAMSHA, NIDA) and all major national addiction societies agree that buprenorphine (Suboxone) is the gold standard treatment for treating opioid use disorder (ASAM).

While Suboxone can be an effective tool for individuals struggling with opioid addiction, it should only be used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that includes counseling and behavioral therapy. Suboxone maintenance can be extremely effective if the patient is consistent with appointments and counseling.

Opioids do have an effect on the brain, causing people to become more impulsive, compulsive, and prone to relapse. It can take years of narcotic withdrawal for the brain to return to normal. As a result, Opioid Use Disorder is considered as a chronic disease, much like diabetes or hypertension. If a patient's diabetes or blood pressure is under control, are medications stopped? No! if they're doing well, they'll keep taking the medication as a preventative measure until fully stabilized. According to research, the longer patients stay on Suboxone and away from illegal drugs, the less likely they are to relapse.

Yes, National Addiction Specialists are authorized to prescribe Suboxone. In order to obtain a Suboxone prescription through telemedicine, patients must first schedule an appointment. During the appointment, the provider will assess the individual's need for medication-assisted treatment and determine whether Suboxone is the best option for them. If the provider determines that Suboxone is appropriate for you, they can prescribe it and instruct you on how to obtain it from a local pharmacy.
