Opioid addiction is a disease that is characterized by intense cravings to use and often over-use opioids. Severe withdrawal symptoms can make it extremely difficult for some people to stop using them, creating a dependency that negatively impacts their physical, mental, and economic health.
Opioids can commonly be found in prescribed pain medications, such as codeine, morphine, Vicodin, and OxyContin. They can also be sourced illegally in the form of street drugs such as heroin and fentanyl. People who develop opioid dependencies prioritize their drug use over everything, and the effects are often severe, debilitating, and/or fatal. To address this epidemic, Suboxone clinics, such as the ones located in all three North Tex Medcare Clinics, are on the rise to help save people’s lives.
Suboxone clinics are medication-assisted treatment (MAT) centers that are run by medical professionals who specialize in treating opioid dependencies. They are typically outpatient rehabilitation centers that offer a combination of behavioral therapy and prescription medication to best treat opioid addiction.
Suboxone itself is the buprenorphine-based medication prescribed to help staunch addiction and prevent relapse amongst those struggling to come off opioids.
Opioids can be difficult to wean off because they reduce the brain’s ability to perceive pain. This often creates a sense of euphoria that is naturally very addicting. Once those pain receptors are no longer blocked by opioids, consumers have left craving that euphoric and pain-alleviating rush all over again.
Suboxone clinics provide specialized treatment that involves the patient taking a specific dose of Suboxone instead of opioids.
Suboxone, a type of buprenorphine medication, works by partially filling the pain receptors located in the brain. While this doesn’t create the same ‘high’, it satisfies the receptors enough to curb cravings and prevent withdrawal symptoms.
Suboxone clinics also provide behavioral therapy to individuals suffering from addiction, offering a more well-rounded approach to recovery. Together, sufferers work together with their personal counselor to address the underlying physical, emotional, and psychological that contribute to their opioid dependency.
While not the only form of treatment option available, medication-assisted treatment clinics are proven to consistently have the best results.
Suboxone is a combination of two separate drugs, buprenorphine, and naloxone. These ingredients work together to create a chemical reaction in the brain that decreases the severity of withdrawal symptoms. They do this by inhibiting opioids from fully latching onto pain receptors, therefore blocking the addictive euphoric high. In addition, they also minimize the negative side effects that usually follow coming down from opioid usage.
Known as “opioid antagonists,” they make weaning off opioids more manageable and increase the likelihood that sufferers recover.
If you or someone you care about needs help with opioid addiction, there are many resources available. A quick Google search can be used to pinpoint clinics that offer medical treatment options in and around your area. You can also check local clinic websites to see if they offer treatment options for opioid dependency. It will usually be located under the ‘services’ heading.
Your general practitioner (GP) may also be able to prescribe Suboxone if you’re struggling with opioid addiction. Even if they can’t, they’ll likely be able to point you in the direction of a healthcare professional or facility that will. Your GP may also be able to provide you with alternative options to help combat opioid dependency.
