Suboxone is a medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid addiction and narcotic withdrawal. It combines two medications — buprenorphine and naloxone — to reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings. Suboxone can be a life-saving treatment for individuals navigating addiction recovery.
Noble Health Solutions specializes in mental health and addiction recovery, ensuring you receive the professional, knowledgeable care you deserve. The practice can integrate Suboxone into your treatment plan to help ease addiction’s challenges.
Suboxone’s effect on addiction is twofold: buprenorphine eases withdrawal symptoms, while naloxone reduces cravings. Merging these two medications increases the likelihood of a successful recovery.
While no stage of recovery is easy, the initial withdrawal stage can be especially challenging. Opioids and narcotics activate your brain’s reward receptors, releasing euphoric feelings and pain relief that can lead to physical and psychological dependence. Withdrawing from these drugs can be an intense experience.
Common withdrawal symptoms include:
Suboxone binds to the brain’s opioid receptors, preventing opioids from attaching if taken. This process prevents the euphoric effects of opioids and narcotics while minimizing withdrawal symptoms to deliver a smoother transition to recovery.
Most Suboxone treatments take about 30-60 minutes, but you can expect a longer session on your first day. Your provider may administer the medication sublingually (under the tongue) or buccally (between the inner cheeks and gums).
Once you take your first round of medication, your provider monitors you closely to ensure your safety and assess your response to Suboxone. Your provider continues to check in regularly over the coming weeks to make any necessary adjustments and provide the appropriate dosage.
The duration of Suboxone treatment can vary widely and typically depends on your individual needs, recovery progress, and risk of relapse. Some individuals take Suboxone for a few months before gradually reducing their dosages, while others may use it for an extended period.
Your provider at Noble Health Solutions can help determine the appropriate duration and number of treatments to support your recovery. Call Noble Health Solutions today or schedule an appointment online to learn more.
