Coming off opiates is never easy. Correctly used, Suboxone treatment can help you get through opiate withdrawal without the harsh symptoms. Once your body is clean of the drugs you abused and your brain has reset to healthier functioning, you can stop taking Suboxone. This medication could be the first part of the pathway to your new, sober life.
Suboxone treatment is a medication that treats opiate withdrawal symptoms. Suboxone is a painkiller that binds to your brain’s opioid receptors, just like the addictive opiates you’ve been taking. But unlike these drugs, Suboxone blocks symptoms without the pleasing side effects of opiates like heroin. This means that you don’t feel sick during withdrawal and you don’t get high from using the helpful painkiller Suboxone.
When you’re on Suboxone, you can’t even get high from other opiates. This benefit helps people like you avoid relapse and stick to treatment.
Some people do abuse Suboxone. But this is usually when the drug is given to them without medical supervision. Under the care of a licensed, accredited and quality rehab, you do not have to worry about the risk of abusing Suboxone. You are able to benefit from using it, instead.
If you go cold turkey off your opiates, you feel sick and experience a wide variety of uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms. Given Suboxone in a licensed detox, you avoid these ill feelings.
Side effects of withdrawing from opiates without Suboxone treatment include:
A doctor will examine you to ensure you are a good candidate for taking Suboxone in detox. The doctor will then order a correct dose so you can start Suboxone treatment. When you start feeling sick from withdrawal, you take the first dose. Your doctor adjusts the dose to fit your exact needs.
Suboxone treatment means you will not have the sickening feelings of detox after the first four to six hours. You may stay on Suboxone for three to four days. If you need the treatment longer, your doctor may prescribe Suboxone for up to two weeks or longer. Suboxone is very safe when properly used in a detox facility.
One of the realities of Suboxone use that you may hear about is that some people do misuse the medication. But Suboxone has a very low potential for addiction when compared to other opiates.
Suboxone absorbs into the bloodstream when placed under the tongue. This means it isn’t injectable, unlike other opiates. In fact, most people who take Suboxone recreationally do so when they cannot get heroin or other opiates to feed their addiction.
Since you will be under the care of a professional detox team when taking Suboxone medication, you will enjoy its benefits without the chance of abusing it. Under correct conditions, Suboxone is very helpful.
There are some Suboxone side effects that users sometimes experience. However, side effects are usually far less bothersome than the side effects of detox without the medication. These effects include:
Your rehab doctor will decide whether you are a good candidate for Suboxone use during opioid addiction detox. The rehab’s team of professionals will do what is best for your health, safety and comfortable withdrawal from drugs and alcohol.
