What is Suboxone?

If you're struggling to get clean, a program that uses Suboxone has been shown to help individuals struggling with opioid addiction.

Suboxone is an FDA-approved medicine that can help people who are addicted to opioids. Suboxone works by blocking opioid receptors in the body to treat opioid addiction. This inhibits the body's response to other opioids and decreases the desire to use them. The first step in overcoming addiction is to deal with withdrawal symptoms and reduce cravings.

Purpose of Suboxone Treatment

Suboxone may help opioid use disorder, but it should not be the only treatment option. It works best as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that includes medication-assisted treatment, counseling and other support services from skilled and qualified Suboxone doctors near you.

At National Addiction Specialists, we use Suboxone to treat opioid addiction via Telemedicine. To find out more about our Suboxone program, call us at (800) 582-5822.

Breaking Barriers to Opioid Addiction Treatment

How Suboxone Treatment Help With Opioid Addiction Recovery?

Suboxone can help with opioid addiction by:

  • Suboxone contains buprenorphine, which helps reduce the intensity of withdrawal symptoms, making it easier for people to quit taking opioids.
  • Blocking the effects of other opioids:  Suboxone contains Naloxone, which can counteract the effects of other opioids and help to reduce the risk of relapse.
  • Suboxone’s buprenorphine can help balance brain chemistry, reducing cravings and the possibility of overdose.
  • Suboxone can help people with opioid addiction improve their general function, physical and mental health, and ability to engage in daily activities.

Suboxone treatment can help many people who are suffering from opioid addiction. Read more here about the different benefits of suboxone treatment for opioid addiction. 

How Suboxone Treatment Works?

Suboxone is effective for opioid addiction, but it is not a cure in and of itself. Suboxone Treatment uses Suboxone medicine in Medication-Assisted Treatment, which provides comprehensive treatment that combines medication with counseling, behavioral therapy, and support services to assist individuals in addressing the root causes of their addiction.

Myths About Using Suboxone To Treat Opioid Addiction

Medication-Assisted treatment (MAT) Program

Evidence-based medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program, which includes counseling, behavioral therapy, and medication, is adequate but not a one-size-fits-all. We are here to evaluate your unique requirements and work with you to choose the proper treatment that fits you.

Receiving ongoing support and guidance for opioid addiction recovery is critical. National Addiction Specialists' treatment provider and the counselor will work with each patient to identify potential additional advocacy services, support groups, and therapies to help them achieve long-term recovery.

3 Stages of Suboxone Treatment Program

Step 1

STEP 1: Induction

Your first telemedicine call with your provider will be learning about your history of opioid abuse to help transition you to a clean life using suboxone to curb your cravings and stop your withdrawals.  Your provider is certified to understand your level of withdrawals and dose you properly to manage your symptoms to provide relief.  

Step 2

STEP 2: Stabilization

After your induction visit, your provider will give you a stabilization program. As with your first visit, the scheduled “return” visits will also be via telemedicine.  Your provider will e-prescribe the medication/prescription and instruct you on the dosage of suboxone that you should take and perform this screening process to assess how you are feeling. And will make any changes until the dose is appropriate for you.

Step 3

STEP 3: Maintenance

Opioid addiction is a chronic disease that requires ongoing monitoring, care, and support. Suboxone maintenance can be highly effective if the patient is diligent with appointments and individual/group counseling. The primary benefits of suboxone maintenance include significantly decreasing the risk of relapse.

A program counselor will see patients at least twice a month during the INDUCTION or STABILIZATION phases and at least once a month during the MAINTENANCE phase. Keeping counseling appointments is an integral part of treatment that works in conjunction with Suboxone to improve success in opioid addiction treatment.
