Suboxone is a prescription medication used to treat patients with addictions to opioids. It’s available in the form of a sublingual film and is usually used in combination with other treatments. Suboxone contains the active ingredients naloxone and buprenorphine.
Buprenorphine works by binding to the same receptors in the brain that react to opioids. This can limit the patient’s cravings for opioids and reduce withdrawal symptoms so they have a better chance of recovering from their addiction successfully.
Suboxone may be appropriate when a patient struggles with any type of opioid addiction. The detoxification process for patients addicted to opioids is often challenging, and many patients relapse because of the intense cravings and severe withdrawal symptoms they experience. Suboxone addresses both of these issues, which makes it easier for the patient to overcome their addiction; however, dependence on Suboxone is created.
Suboxone should always be used under a doctor’s supervision. Patients who aren’t sure whether treatment with Suboxone is appropriate can discuss the issue with the professionals at New Hope Recovery House.
