If you are suffering from an opioid addiction but do not want to undergo in-patient rehabilitation or other intense forms of treatment, there is an effective solution available for you in the form of Suboxone®, an FDA-approved medication for opioid dependence.
Opioid dependence is a serious condition, and deaths from prescription pain killers have reached epidemic levels in the past decade. It usually involves abuse of prescription painkillers, such as Vicodin, Percocet and Oxycontin. Frequently, patients start using prescription pain killers following surgery or for painful conditions. Due to addictive properties of prescription pain killers, many patients progress from using them for pain to using them to create a sensation of well-being and tranquility. Misuse of prescription painkillers can easily progress to abuse and dependence in a matter of months.
While some patients may benefit from short-term treatment, others may need more time to overcome all psychological and behavioral aspects of their dependence. Clarity Medical will develop a customized treatment plan for each individual patient that takes into account their condition history and relapse risk, among other factors.
The main ingredient in Suboxone is Buprenorphine, an opioid, which stimulates a pleasure response that is much less intense than that achieved through substance use. This helps to suppress the unpleasant symptoms of withdrawal and reduce the constant cravings for opioids in a safe, controlled manner, allowing patients to feel level-headed while on medication. Patients are expected to retain their ability to function while taking Suboxone.
