If you’re committed to recovery from an opioid use disorder, medication-assisted treatment (MAT) may be beneficial to you. Suboxone® is one type of medication used in treatment to help control withdrawal symptoms and ease recovery.
Turn to Middlesex Recovery when you need a Suboxone® doctor in Massachusetts or New Hampshire. Visit us for outpatient services at one of six locations. We’re here to help those with opioid use disorders on the journey toward recovery.
Suboxone® works to counteract the pleasurable symptoms of opioid use. For that reason, it’s used as a prescription treatment for opioid use disorder with approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Opioids like heroin, morphine and prescription painkillers block pain receptors in the brain and trigger the release of endorphins. Suboxone® targets the same receptors to manage the physiological symptoms of withdrawal.
Suboxone® is composed of two medications — buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine interacts with opioid receptors to elicit relief from cravings. Naloxone is an opioid blocker that counteracts the effects opioids produce on the body.
Suboxone® is just one variety of medication used to treat opioid use disorders. Other medications used in treatment programs include Vivitrol®, an injectable medication consisting of naloxone.
The Suboxone® treatment process varies, as it’s customized to each patient. The general treatment process includes the following steps:
