Frequently Asked Questions
Suboxone is known as a safe and effective medication that can help individuals who are grappling with an opioid addiction. If you have become dependent on one or more opioids, incorporating Suboxone into a comprehensive plan at a medication assisted treatment program can help you put your abuse to an end without struggling with cravings or painful withdrawal symptoms. The best way to determine if Suboxone is the right medication for you is to speak to your physician who can evaluate your needs and recommend the appropriate treatment for you.
Buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) is a long-acting, partial opioid agonist used to treat opioid use disorder.
Patients who have been taking opioids, like oxycodone (percocet), hydrocodone (Vicodin), hydromorphone (Dilaudid), methadone, heroin, fentanyl, on a daily basis can become dependent on these substances, meaning that if they do not take them daily, they will experience awful withdrawal symptoms, like nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, body aches, agitation/anxiety. Many people become addicted and the opioids start to take control of their life. They have cravings, think about opiates all the time, and are unable to fulfill their daily responsibilities like going to work or taking care of friends and family. It becomes an “all consuming disease”.
Mental health conditions are often treated with medication, therapy or a combination of the two. However, there are many different types of treatment available, including Complementary & Alternative Treatments, self-help plans, and peer support. Treatments are very personal and should be discussed by the person with the mental health conditions and his or her team.
Your initial consultation at A New Crossroad will delve into what is happening in the patient’s life and what their responses to these situations have been to provide the patient with a more comprehensive understanding as to what they are feeling and how their own reactions may be perpetuating these negative encounters.
Opioid addiction (or opioid use disorder) is a chronic condition that is marked by a strong desire to use opioids. When people try to quit using opioids, they find that they become physically dependent. Opioids can include prescription pain medication such as Percocet, Vicodin and OxyContin as well as street drugs like heroin and fentanyl.
These highly addictive drugs can lead to severe health and social problems. Opioid addicts place their opioid use above all else in their lives. More than 2 million Americans abuse prescription pain pills and street drugs like heroin and Fentanyl. Suboxone Doctors have risen to the occasion to address the crisis.
Suboxone doctors run medication-assisted therapy (MAT) centers. These centers offer outpatient rehabilitation that combines behavioral therapy with prescription medication to treat opioid addiction. To prevent relapse, Suboxone doctors will prescribe buprenorphine-based medication like Suboxone or Sublocade. Patients can live a happy, healthy life with the help of behavioral therapy.
Vivitrol, also known as naltrexone, is a medication that effectively blocks the effects of opioid medication. It specifically targets the pain relief and euphoric sensations that can lead to opioid abuse. Vivitrol is an integral part of treatment programs designed to address drug or alcohol dependence. Its primary function is to prevent relapse in individuals who have become dependent on opioid medicine but have ceased its use.
Vivitrol is formulated as an extended-release version of naltrexone, an opioid receptor antagonist. In 2010, it received official approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a preventive measure against relapse in opioid dependence. Its mechanism of action involves binding to opioid receptors in the brain for a period of up to one month. It is worth noting that Vivitrol stands out as the sole approved medication for opioid dependence that is not classified as a controlled substance.
