Medication-assisted treatment for Opioid Addiction
Suboxone is a medication used to help people in recovery from opiate addiction. It can be a helpful part of a comprehensive treatment program when used as prescribed by a doctor.
It is a prescription medication made with a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone, used to treat people in recovery from opiate addiction. The combination of buprenorphine and naloxone creates a medication with unique properties specifically intended for opiate treatment.
Suboxone is unique because it attaches to the same receptors in your body as heroin or painkillers but does not produce the same strong high. The buprenorphine provides mild effects to relieve cravings while the naloxone limits the ability to get high off the medication.
