Suboxone contains a combination of Buprenorphine and Naloxone. Buprenorphine is the primary active ingredient in Suboxone Film. By attaching to the same receptors as other opioids, it can help to suppress withdrawal symptoms and reduce cravings. The secondary active ingredient is Naloxone. Naloxone is included to help with the misuse of medication. Naloxone blocks the effects of opioid medication, including pain relief or feelings of well-being that can lead to opioid abuse and addiction.
Suboxone is used to treat opiate addiction. Suboxone acts as a medical intervention to alleviate the painful symptoms of prescription medication withdrawal, in order to allow successful recovery and encourage a smooth continuance of day to day life for the patient. Once Suboxone treatment begins, a patient will experience a dramatic reduction in withdrawal symptoms and also a suppression of harmful drug cravings.
While Suboxone is a crucial first step in combating your addiction, our professionals encourage patients to participate in a counseling program throughout the process as well. After an initial assessment, we will develop a tailored plan for them incorporating Suboxone treatment into their recovery process, as well as any other necessary aids. We like to remind our patients that we are not a lifetime clinic... Merely a stepping stone in your recovery. Suboxone Film is not designed for long-term use. Once the individual and Doctor feel it is safe we will taper down in dosage and eventually wean off completely. It is typically a 6 -12 month process but every individual is different. We look forward to working with you and getting you the help you deserve.
