Successful treatment from addiction to Opioids has been one of the most difficult challenges, however, with newer treatments recovery is not only possible but also can be made more comfortable and manageable. One of such newer medications is Suboxone approved by FDA for treatment of addiction to opiates such as prescription pain pills such as Codeine, Morphine, Hydrocodone (Vicodin), Oxycodone/Oxycontin as well as illicit opiates such as Heroin.
Suboxoneis proven to be effective in the treatment of Opioid Addiction as long as it is utilized for the right reasons, for the right patients, by the right physicians and in the right manner along with other complementary treatment modalities such as professional counseling and working on improving one’s physical, mental/emotional and spiritual health.
Suboxonecan be very helpful for debilitating addiction to painkillers and heroin, and it can only be prescribed by physicians who have a special license by the DEA to prescribe this medication.
When prescribed and used properly under medical supervision, Suboxone allows for a gradual weaning off the opioids which can be individualized and made quite comfortable as opposed to the pain and suffering of cold-turkey detox.
Suboxone also helps alleviate the cravings for opioids which can be very powerful and can continue on for days, weeks and sometimes even months after stopping the use of opioids. Such cravings make the individual in early recovery highly vulnerable to relapse and withdraw from treatment. Most individuals taking Suboxone as part of their recovery from opiate addiction are fully capable of being productive in their daily lives, being able to work, go to school and take care of family responsibilities. Suboxone has a unique chemical formulation and properties which makes it a low risk for being abused and unlikely to cause an overdose.
