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:
- 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.
