Suboxone addiction treatment

Suboxone Abuse & Addiction

SuboxoneThe number of people becoming dependent on their Suboxone in recent years is staggering. Many were told to take it as a replacement drug and now are having a difficult time getting off it, or are even abusing it on the street. If you are looking for a treatment center to help you get off Suboxone, we can help.

Suboxone(buprenorphine and naloxone) is being used more over the past decade to treat opioid dependence (addiction to opioid drugs, including heroin and narcotic painkillers). Buprenorphine is in a class of drugs called opioid partial agonist-antagonists, and naloxone is in a class of medications called opioid antagonists. Buprenorphine alone and the combination of buprenorphine and naloxone are intended to prevent withdrawal symptoms when someone stops taking opioid drugs by producing similar effects to these drugs. If used short-term over a period of less than a week and supervised by a doctor it can help reduce withdrawal symptoms, but not eliminate them.

The Dangers of Suboxone

In a five-year period the number of Suboxone prescriptions increased 17 times and is now about 5,000,000 per year or more, which is up from just about 300,000 in 2004. Since at its root Suboxone is still a synthetic iopiod, it does have the potential for abuse and addiction. Unfortunately the makers of the drug have convinced people that it should be prescribed for a longer-term maintenance drug rather than a short-term withdrawal inhibitor.
