How do I know if Suboxone is right for me?

The use of Suboxone provides patients with the opportunity to safely eliminate withdrawal symptoms while diminishing cravings for continued opioid use. Suboxone allows patients the opportunity to take part in daily activities such as work, driving, and school without impairment as use of this medication will not cause cognitive disruptions. When taken as prescribed under the guidance of a licensed medical professional, Suboxone is an extremely safe and effective treatment option for an addiction to opioids. Jackson Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC) proudly offers several medications that can be incorporated into a patient’s treatment program. Because of this fact, patients should work closely with our medical team in order to determine the appropriate medication based upon their individual treatment needs.

Can I become addicted to Suboxone?

As Suboxone uses a combination of naloxone and buprenorphine as its active ingredients, it does carry with it the potential for addiction. However, when taken as directed within a medication-assisted treatment program, the risk for addiction is minimal. Buprenorphine interacts with the same receptors in the brain that are typically activated by the abuse of opioids. Buprenorphine, however, will not cause patients to experience intense feelings of euphoria or relaxation. For this reason, patients are able to actively play a role in their treatment without impairment.

Will Suboxone show up on a drug screening?

Patients who are prescribed Suboxone and required to complete a drug screen will not test positively as a specific test is required in order to detect the presence of buprenorphine in the system. Suboxone is legal when taken with a prescription from a licensed treatment center.

How long will I need to be on Suboxone?

The length of time for which a patient remains on Suboxone will be dependent upon his or her unique treatment needs. The use of this medication is clinically proven safe for both short and long-term use, which allows patients to remain on it for as long as necessary. By working with their treatment provider, patients are able to determine the length of time for which Suboxone will benefit them and their treatment progress.

Does Suboxone interact with other drugs or medications?

Since Suboxone can negatively interact with other prescriptions and over-the-counter medications, patients should notify their treatment provider of any substances that they are taking prior to incorporating the use of Suboxone into their treatment program. Suboxone should not be taken with opium, heroin, hydrocodone, alcohol, and/or codeine due to the extremely dangerous interactions that can occur.

What if I no longer wish to take Suboxone? Can I stop or switch to a different medication?

Should a patient no longer wish to remain on Suboxone, he or she should closely work with his or her treatment provider in order to safely wean off of the medication. Patients who abruptly cease use of Suboxone place themselves at an increased risk for experiencing withdrawal symptoms. Once a patient is no longer taking Suboxone, he or she may then transition onto a different medication for the remainder of his or her treatment, or remain opioid-free without the assistance of a prescription.

What is the cost of Suboxone treatment?

Jackson Comprehensive Treatment Center provides highly customizable treatment to each of our patients. For this reason, the final cost of care will vary based upon a variety of factors.
