  Suboxone Treatments for Addiction

Suboxone Treatment offers hope for addictions

Suboxone (buprenorphine) is a medication used to treat opiate dependence and addiction. This includes dependence on prescription pain medications, heroin, and methadone. Suboxone was developed in October of 2002 to allow successful detoxification and monthly maintenance therapy to take place in an outpatient setting, such as a doctor’s office.

Dr. Vye is addiction-medicine certified through the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM), which includes certification in Suboxone (buprenorphine) therapy. Suboxone is the only controlled substance approved for the treatment of opioid addiction and dependence to be used in an office setting.

Suboxone can be used to treat addictions to the following:

  • vicodin
  • percocet
  • oxycontin
  • heroin
  • methadone
  • other opioid-based products

Suboxone cannot be used if other addictions are present, such as those to alcohol, benzodiazepines, cocaine, methamphetamines, etc. But, other treatment medications are available for a wide-range of addictive substances.

For more information on our Suboxone program and protocol, please request an information packet from our office.

Waiting list information: We place interested patients on our waiting list in the order that they call. When a position becomes available, we will call the first patient on the waiting list. First priority will then be given to whomever calls back first and provides a deposit to start the induction process.
