If you’re ready to finally find a successful treatment for opioid addiction and reclaim your life, you may be a candidate for medication-assisted treatment. Using medication to prevent withdrawals and cravings isn’t a magic pill—but when used along with other treatment options as a comprehensive strategy, it can be an effective tool.
We specialize in using buprenorphine (commonly known as Buprenex) or buprenorphine combined with naloxone (commonly known as Suboxone) to alleviate symptoms of withdrawals in patients addicted to opioids to allow them to have an increased quality of life. With this treatment, many patients are able to resume their daily activities without the need to rely on the opioids to which their bodies have become dependent.
Benefits of using medication to support your treatment include:
Avoiding unpleasant and painful withdrawal symptoms
Reducing cravings during your recovery
Increased chances of successful long-term recovery when used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan
When you work with us, you’ll first come into our office for an evaluation so we can determine the best plan of action and establish proper dosage. You will continue to be evaluated on a routine basis so we can ensure treatment remains on course.
