In-Office Opioid Dependency Treatment Prescribing Suboxone, generic version is Buprenorphine.

Brief Description of Service

For people addicted to opioids, such as heroin, oxycodone, and other pain medications, treatment is available through a specially licensed doctor who can prescribe Suboxone, Bunavail, and Zubsolv. Suboxone is actually the combination of two different drugs: buprenorphine (a partial opioid agonist) and naloxone (a pure opioid antagonist).In 2000, burprenorphine was approved in the law, and it could be prescribed by physicians who have been trained and certified by the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment to treat opioid addiction. There are several advantages to using a medication like buprenorphine in the treatment of opiate abuse. Buprenorphine can:

-Help the individual to remain safe and comfortable during detox
-Reduce or eliminate cravings for heroin or other opiates
-Minimize relapse since the individual is not experiencing uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms
-Allow the individual to focus on therapy without being distracted by withdrawal symptoms and cravings
