What is Suboxone Treatment?
Suboxone treatment is a medication-assisted treatment of opioid addiction. These treatments help patients stay sober while reducing cravings and minimizing the side effects experienced with withdrawal. Suboxone is an opioid buprenorphine, a partial opioid agonist, that was approved by the FDA is 2002 for use in treating opioid addiction. Suboxone also contains naloxone, which is an opioid receptor antagonist and blocks the euphoric effects of opioids.
Suboxone treatment is typically used during the detoxification period of opioid addiction rehabilitation but is approved for maintenance treatment as well. Suboxone eliminates any euphoric feelings associated with opioids by blocking the opioid receptor in the brain and makes it impossible to experience highs from other opiates while being taken. This unique quality of Suboxone allows it to be used to eliminate withdrawal symptoms without the risk of the medication being abused because taking more of the medication will not get the patient high.
