What Is Suboxone® Medication?

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.

Opioid Substance Use Treatment With Suboxone®

The Suboxone® treatment process varies, as it’s customized to each patient. The general treatment process includes the following steps:

  1. Induction phase: After a patient has abstained from opioids for 12 to 24 hours, the medication is administered during the early stages of opioid withdrawal.
  2. Stabilization phase: Once a patient has discontinued or significantly reduced opioid intake, the second stage begins. During this stage, medication dosages may be reduced to alternate days rather than daily.
  3. Maintenance phase: When patients are doing well, they continue to receive a steady dose of medication. This stage may end or could be indefinite, depending on the patient.
