Suboxone is a medication with the potential to reduce symptoms of opiate addiction and withdrawal. It has been widely touted as a safer alternative to methadone in battling opioid addiction.
However, Suboxone has the potential to be abused and create addiction. The reason for its effectiveness is the reason for its potential for addiction. If you or someone you know find yourself struggling with dependence on this medication call our Suboxone Rehab Center today!
This makes for a difficult situation for heroin and opioid addicts looking to recover from addiction. The medication has created its own epidemic, requiring a whole new course of addiction treatment.
How it Works
Suboxone is the combination of two different drugs: buprenorphine, a partial opioid agonist, and naloxone, a pure opioid antagonist.
Buprenorphine ’s delivers a very diminished opioid dose. This provides a way for the patient to be gradually weaned off their pre-existing addiction and minimizes withdrawal symptoms.
Naloxone, meanwhile, reverses the effects of opioid agonists that are already in the patient’s system by intercepting signals that receptors are sending to the nervous system.

getting help at a Suboxone rehab center
As with most cases of opioid abuse, the first step of treatment is detoxification, the controlled and supervised withdrawal from Suboxone.
Since this will trigger the usual withdrawal symptoms, it is imperative that detox is conducted in a treatment facility, in the presence of certified healthcare professionals.
In Suboxone’s first clinical trial of extended usage to treat opioid addiction, a study by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) of 154 young adults found that Suboxone treatment substantially improved outcomes. The study’s investigators noted not just “a marked reduction” in opioid use, but other drugs as well.
Five years after that 2008 study, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration reported that nearly 10 million prescriptions for Suboxone were filled.
However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration found that Suboxone was the “primary drug” in 420 reported deaths since 2003.
The National Pain Report reported that more than 30,000 emergency room visits in 2010 were the result of Suboxone misuse. Of those ER visits, more than 50 percent were considered “recreational” use of Suboxone.
