Outpatient Medication-Assisted Treatment with Suboxone

Suboxone is a medication for fentanyl, heroin, and pain pill addiction. This medication is made with buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is called an opioid “partial agonist,” which means it partially binds to the opioid receptors in the brain, but not to the same degree as other opioids like fentanyl, heroin, oxycodone (Percocet) and hydrocodone (Vicodin). Buprenorphine tricks the brain into believing it has encountered a full opioid such as oxycodone or heroin. It produces no euphoria with less physical dependence, has a lower potential for misuse, and also has a ceiling effect, meaning you will not need more to produce the same effect. Naloxone blocks or reverses the effects of opioid medications, including buprenorphine. When addicted to opioid substances, it is recommended one enters into a medication-assisted treatment program for the best chance outcomes.

Opiate Addiction Treatment with Suboxone

Suboxone is a prescription medication that helps ease withdrawal symptoms and combat cravings. Patients report that Suboxone “makes them feel normal” again. During the time spent in recovery on Suboxone, patients participate in individual counseling and other behavioral therapies to get to the root of the underlying issues while learning relapse prevention, coping strategies and developing new ways to feel, react and live. Typically, a patient can start taking Suboxone 24 hours post-use and will experience relief of symptoms very quickly. Suboxone allows one to stabilize and maintain while living their day to day lives free of substance abuse and addiction. Patients who use Suboxone ARE NOT “trading one addiction for another”- please read why in our blog here: Is Suboxone Trading One Addiction For Another?

We understand that once a patient is ready to begin their addiction recovery using Suboxone, we must act fast. In most cases, patients are able to start the treatment process on the very day they’re asking for help. All necessary clinical assessments and office requirements for Suboxone maintenance are conducted at this appointment in order to introduce medication immediately. The patient may be able to see their counselor this day whether it be in person or via tele-counseling; if not, they will leave with a scheduled first appointment. Dependent upon each individual patient case will determine when you’re asked to return for a follow-up, but can always expect within 3-7 days.

Each patient has their own individualized treatment plan, developed by themselves and the doctor consisting of chemical dependency counseling, mental health services (if needed), support meeting guidance, and other behavioral modification approaches. We continue to monitor the patient’s progress on a bi-weekly or monthly basis until the patient is stable, engaging in all aspects of their treatment plan, and genuinely doing well. If a patient has setbacks, we move them to a higher level of care with more frequent office visits, urine screening, and modification of the treatment plan until they have once again stabilized. We believe each patient is a unique individual with a specific set of needs that must be met in order to have the best chance for lifelong recovery.
