How do I know if Suboxone is right for me?

When utilized within a medication-assisted treatment program, Suboxone is a safe and effective option for individuals who are battling opioid addictions. By diminishing the symptoms of withdrawal and providing relief from opioid cravings, Suboxone provides patients with the physical relief required in order for patients to focus on recovery and long-term sobriety. By speaking with the dedicated and knowledgeable team at Claymont Comprehensive Treatment Center, individuals can determine if Suboxone is the appropriate medication to incorporate into their medication-assisted treatment plans, of which are based on individual needs and treatment requirements.

Can I become addicted to Suboxone?

As is the case with other medications, individuals can develop a tolerance and addiction to Suboxone if taken outside of the prescribed guidelines. However, when taken as directed within a medication-assisted treatment program and under the supervision of a medical professional, Suboxone is an extremely safe option for patients. Comprised of buprenorphine and naloxone as its active components, Suboxone interacts with the same receptors in the brain that are typically activated by opioids without producing a euphoric high. By providing patients relief from the side effects of opioids, individuals are able to focus on recovery without the cravings and withdrawal symptoms associated with addiction.

Will Suboxone show up on a drug screening?

Should a patient be required to complete a drug screen while using Suboxone, a positive result will not take place. A specific drug test is required to detect buprenorphine, one of the active ingredients in Suboxone. It is important to note that when prescribed Suboxone as part of a medication-assisted treatment program, the use of this medication is legal.

How long will I need to be on Suboxone?

The length of time in which patients will continue using Suboxone for will vary pending the individual needs of each patient. Extensive research has confirmed that the use of Suboxone is safe for both short- and long-term use. Suboxone blocks cravings as well as withdrawal symptoms, which provide patients with the opportunity to achieve mental clarity, fully focus on recovery, attend work and school, and drive. Since the effectiveness of Suboxone does not lessen over time, you are able to continue taking this medication until you and your healthcare provider decide on a different treatment path or until treatment ceases.

Does Suboxone interact with other drugs or medications?

As is true with most medications, patients who are contemplating the use of Suboxone should notify their physician of any other medications taken prior to starting Suboxone to avoid any potential harmful side effects. Suboxone will cause strong reactions when taken with alcohol or other opiates such as heroin, hydrocodone, codeine, and oxycodone, which is why patients should refrain from using these substances while taking Suboxone.

What if I no longer wish to take Suboxone? Can I stop or switch to a different medication?

Just because a patient begins Suboxone does not mean that he or she will be required to take the medication long-term. Should you and your healthcare provider decide on a different course of treatment or if enough progression has been made in treatment, patients will be given the opportunity to safely wean off of Suboxone before transitioning onto a different medication or continuing treatment without the aid of prescription medications.

What is the cost of Suboxone treatment?

Treatment at Claymont Comprehensive Treatment Center is extremely individualized based on the specific treatment requirements of each individual patient that walks through our doors. Because of this, the cost of treatment will vary between patients.
