Suboxone contains two medicines, buprenorphine and naloxone. These two medications do an exceptional job of helping people break their dependency on opioids, such as heroin, morphine, codeine, oxycodone, and hydrocodone.
The drugs in Suboxone allow you to safely detox by stopping your cravings and preventing withdrawal symptoms. Overcoming Addictions LLC can write a prescription for Suboxone, then you take it at home. You have regular follow-up appointments, but you can get all of your care through telehealth visits.
Your Suboxone treatment goes through three stages. The stages don’t follow a precise time frame; you progress through them as you feel ready.
You take your first dose of Suboxone when you’re in the early stages of withdrawal from opioids. Your provider coordinates the timing during your initial telehealth or in-person appointment. Then they send the prescription to your preferred pharmacy, and you take a dose of Suboxone each day.
When you no longer have cravings, your provider adjusts your Suboxone dose and you enter the stabilization phase. During this time, you keep taking Suboxone and still have regular appointments because you may need a higher or lower dose.
After your cravings stop, which can take months, you keep taking a steady dose of Suboxone to ensure new cravings don’t appear and send you into relapse. You can stay in this phase indefinitely, but once you feel ready, don’t suddenly stop taking Suboxone. It’s important to let your provider slowly taper down your dose.
Once you’re done with Suboxone, you may need another medication. Overcoming Addictions LLC provides medication management for as long as you need it. Additionally, they can restart Suboxone if your opioid cravings return.
MAT successfully treats opioid addictions by combining Suboxone with counseling, which is essential for maintaining your recovery. Therapy helps you learn to identify and manage the emotions, thoughts, habits, and social or work challenges that might tempt you to relapse and start taking opioids again.
