Suboxone (buprenorphine) can be a life-saving drug that helps people to stop using opiates — allowing them to live a healthier life. But despite its benefits, Suboxone is a highly addictive narcotic and dependency can easily become a part of life if not administered in a medical detox setting. If used in an unsupervised setting, It can lead to replacing one drug dependency with another. At Banyan Detox we recognize how difficult it is to simply stop using any drug, and so we offer support- medically and emotionally – at our facility for those in need of Suboxone Detoxification.
What is Suboxone?
Suboxone is a drug that was developed for treatment of addiction to drugs like heroin, hydrocodone, OxyContin, morphine, codeine, fentanyl and others.
Suboxone contains a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is an opioid medication. An opioid is sometimes called a narcotic. Naloxone blocks the effects of opioid medication, including pain relief or feelings of well-being that can lead to opioid abuse.
What is Suboxone Withdrawal Like?
While the length of Suboxone withdrawal will vary, the symptoms remain the same and can include:
- Muscle aches
- Digestive distress
- Drug cravings
- Concentration difficulties
At Banyan Detox, we try our best to ensure that the withdrawals symptoms are addressed and patients are kept as comfortable as possible.
Suboxone Detox Options
Just like any opiod, Suboxone Detox can include many medical complications and is always best done under the supervision of a medical professional. Suboxone detox is completed in a process of tapering off the medication. Once completely finished with a taper, a person will still have Post Acute Withdrawal symptoms for sometimes as long as 6 to 24 months after last dosage – depending on how long Suboxone treatment occurred. For this reason alone, Suboxone Detox should always be followed up with proper Addiction Treatment and Counseling.
