Treatments that uses suboxone as detox for opiates in the United States
What is suboxone and how is it used to treat drug addiction?
Suboxone is a drug made from buprenorphine and naxolone. Buprenorphine is the opioid medication and naxolone is used to counteract the opioid medication, so that the person taking it won’t get the feelings associated to opiate medication such as pain relief. This combination makes the risk of abuse or addiction much lower. We advocate the use of suboxone in a detoxification setting. Suboxone can be used to help the body deal with the withdrawal from very strong drugs. We do not advocate suboxone maintenance, as we believe a person should be completely drug-free once they end treatment. The longer a person takes suboxone, the higher the risk of dependency.
