WHAT MEDICATIONS DO YOU USE TO TREAT OPIOID DEPENDENCE?
We treat opioid dependence with buprenorphrine & naloxone (Suboxone).

WHAT IS SUBOXONE?
Suboxone is a prescription medication that is composed of a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine itself is a partial opioid agonist which works on the same receptors in the brain that opioids do, yet without producing the full effects of opioid narcotics. It essentially takes over the brain’s opiate receptors, reducing cravings and symptoms of withdrawal that would typically be experienced in the absence of opioids. Naloxone is considered an opioid antagonist, otherwise referred to an as opioid blocker, and works by counteracting the negative effects that opioids have on the body. Suboxone, helps deny the painful and uncomfortable symptoms that accompany opioid withdrawal and is free from the cravings for the drug that typically overpower opioid addicts.
