For individuals struggling with opioid addiction, medication-assisted treatment is one of the most effective treatments available. Far better than traditional abstinence-based recovery programs, medication-assisted treatment or MAT helps patients manage cravings and minimize withdrawal symptoms. Perhaps one of the most successful and effective medications can be found in our suboxone treatment program. Suboxone allows patients to taper off the opioid they are addicted to. By weaning off their addiction, the treatment minimizes the opioid withdrawal symptoms that usually accompany ceasing opioid use. The British Medical Journal cites research that says Suboxone and other MAT medicines reduce one’s risk of fatal opioid overdose by an astonishing 50%. Thus, it’s clear a suboxone treatment program like that offered by TruHealing Reidsville, can not only save lives but allow patients to recover from addiction.
What is Suboxone?
Suboxone is the combination of two drugs–buprenorphine and naloxone. The FDA-approved medication is tightly-regulated, designed, and developed to treat opioid use disorder. Buprenorphine is extensively used in MAT programs to help people quit heroin and other opiates. Naloxone is an opioid agonist, a chemical that activates the receptors in the brain opioids target. It both competes with and blocks the effects of other opioids, including buprenorphine. Also, it acts as an opioid deterrent. Combining buprenorphine and naloxone therefore significantly negates any opioid-related effects of the former, as well as any outside opiates.
In TruHealing Reidsville’s suboxone treatment program, this medication’s combination significantly decreases the chances of opioid relapse as well as overdose. This is what makes suboxone unique in medication-assisted treatment.
