Sometimes you have to control your body’s physical dependency to an opioid while you tackle the behavioral issues of addiction. The Counseling Center can provide Suboxone maintenance as a portion of our care. When used with therapy and healthy living habits, daily dosages of Suboxone can assist in minimizing cravings for opioids and give you the chance to progress to long-term sobriety.
How Can Suboxone Aid My Recovery?
Suboxone is a daily medication utilized to treat an addiction to opioids. The medicine impedes the receptors in the brain that set off feelings of euphoria when you take opioids. If you are unable to experience those sensations, your brain will no longer send cues that lead to both cravings and withdrawal symptoms.
The use of suboxone to treat an opioid use disorder is described as Medication-assisted Treatment (MAT). The administering of suboxone usually begins in a detox facility between 12 and 48 hours following the start of withdrawal symptoms. Ingesting Suboxone earlier than that can aggravate symptoms, so it's best to rely on an experienced healthcare expert to help you take the proper dosage at the most suitable moment. As you progress through recovery, you'll keep taking Suboxone daily to mitigate cravings and avoid a relapse.
Suboxone is authorized for continual use. The length of treatment will vary for each patient, as some only take it for days and others are on Suboxone for weeks or longer. The Counseling Center is able to offer Suboxone maintenance as part of our Medication-assisted Treatment program.
Who Can Benefit From Suboxone Treatments?
Suboxone is approved as a form of treatment for opioid addiction. Following an assessment, a healthcare specialist can let you know if you're a good candidate for Suboxone treatments. This medication could be right for you if you:
- Are struggling with opioid use disorder
- Have stopped the use of opioids and are experiencing withdrawal
- Are dedicated to continual treatment
Customized Suboxone Maintenance
Suboxone treatment typically begins in a short-term detox center but can be continued for as long as you need it. You are able to acquire Suboxone at the pharmacy with a valid prescription and continue it on your own. But keep in mind, you'll get the best results when you pair this medicine with group and individual therapy.
The Counseling Center provides Suboxone maintenance in our MAT program. While Suboxone curbs impulses, our credentialed therapists help you understand the core origins of substance use and cultivate effective coping strategies to manage trauma and triggers. Whenever you start care at The Counseling Center, we'll perform a full evaluation to understand the level of your addiction and your healthcare history. This background will provide us the opportunity to design a custom-tailored approach that integrates the right mix of counseling and MAT.
As you advance in your recovery, our skilled clinicians will make proper modifications to ensure your Suboxone dose is effective. When appropriate we'll help you carefully taper your prescription when your Suboxone doctor tells us it's the right time. The blend of outpatient therapy and Suboxone maintenance permits countless patients to progress toward lasting sobriety and live happy lives.
