How do I know if Subutex is right for me?

Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of opioid addiction, Subutex is a safe and effective medication prescribed to individuals who are receiving treatment though Jackson Comprehensive Treatment Center (CTC). When taken as prescribed, Subutex eliminates cravings for continued opioid use while providing relief from the physical symptoms that accompany the process of withdrawal. Use of this medication allows patients to actively play a role in daily activities such as work, driving, and school in an unimpaired manner. There are multiple medications available through Jackson Comprehensive Treatment Center, which is why patients should closely work with their treatment team in order to determine the appropriate medication based upon their unique set of treatment requirements.

Can I become addicted to Subutex?

As Subutex does carry addictive properties along with its use, patients should closely follow all guidelines regarding taking this medication. When taken as prescribed under the close supervision of a licensed medical professional, the risk for addiction is low. Jackson CTC closely monitors the prescribing and administering of all medications which further decreases the risk for addiction.

Will Subutex show up on a drug screening?

Should a patient be required to complete a drug screen while taking Subutex, he or she will not test positive as a specific test is required in order to detect buprenorphine (the active ingredient in Subutex) within the system. Patients who consume opioids and other substances while in treatment will cause a positive test result to occur.

How long will I need to be on Subutex?

Although the use of Subutex is safe for both short and long-term consumption, individuals are not required to remain on this medication long-term. By working closely with their treatment provider, patients are able to determine the length of time for which Subutex will positively benefit them and their future.

Does Subutex interact with other drugs or medications?

Since the use of Subutex can negatively interact with other prescriptions and over-the-counter medications, patients should refrain from using Subutex until they are able to confirm with their treatment provider that no interactions will take place. Patients who are prescribed Subutex should not consume alcohol and/or recreational drugs while in treatment due to the dangerous interactions that can occur.

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

Should a patient no longer wish to remain on Subutex, he or she should closely work with his or her treatment provider in order to safely taper off of the medication. Abruptly ceasing use of Subutex can cause patients to experience withdrawal symptoms that are often painful and bothersome. Once Subutex is no longer in a patient’s system, he or she can either transition onto a different medication or remain substance-free without the aid of a prescription. These decisions should be made by closely working with our team of medical experts to ensure a patient’s safety throughout the entire course of treatment.

What is the cost of Subutex treatment?

Jackson Comprehensive Treatment Center tailors its treatment to each individual patient who walks through our doors. By taking a customized comprehensive treatment approach, patients are able to receive the individualized care that fits their unique set of needs and goals. Because care will vary between patients, the final cost of care will fluctuate as well.
