What is Suboxone?
Suboxone contains a combination of Buprenorphine and Naloxone.
Buprenorphine is an opioid medication. Buprenorphine is similar to other opioids such as morphine, codeine, and heroin however, it produces less euphoric ("high") effects and therefore may be easier to stop taking.
Naloxone blocks the effects of opioids such as morphine, codeine, and heroin. If Suboxone is injected, Naloxone will block the effects of Buprenorphine and lead to withdrawal symptoms in a person with an opioid addiction. When administered under the tongue as directed, Naloxone will not affect the actions of Buprenorphine.
Suboxone is used to treat opiate addiction.
Depending on how a patient wants to treat their substance use disorder, Suboxone can be used to detoxify or help people get off opioids altogether. It can also be used as a short or long term opioid substitution (replacement) medication.
It is an oral medication that is taken daily. Our goal is to provide excellent addiction treatment in the convenience of a traditional office-based medicine. We pay attention to every detail of care, striving to provide a non-judgmental and nurturing environment where our patients are safe and well cared for.
Office-based medicine is supportive, promotes health, and encourages sobriety. It promotes a strong patient orientation in patient/provider relationships. Your needs and concerns drive care, and care is individualized, flexible, and affordable. We treat our patients in the same way we expect to be treated, with trust, listening, empathy, and respect.
