Suboxone Maintenance - Medication Assisted Treatment - MAT - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
What is Suboxone Maintenance? Suboxone, and its different forms such as sublocade, and subutex used in the treating of opioid addiction illegal or prescription. Suboxone contains the ingredients Buprenorphine, and Naloxone. Buprenorphine, a partial opioid agonist, blocks the opiate receptors in the brain and can reduce urges to continue to use opioids like Percocet, oxycontin, oxycodone, fentanyl, morphine, and heroin. Suboxone can be prescribed to taper a person off opiates in a medical detox or inpatient rehab setting. An MD will taper a person slowly, and prescribe comfort medications to ween a person off their drug of choice. Opioid or Heroin withdrawal is one of the worst, and should not be attempted without the help of an outpatient or inpatient addiction treatment center. With the assistance of a drug treatment center, individuals can successfully detox in a safe, comfortable setting.
Sometimes a patient will stay on a daily suboxone regimen due to the powerful nature of opioids today, and street heroin that contains fentanyl or carfentanil. These opioids hijack the brain so fully that even if someone wants to come off them they find they cannot. This is why a Medication Assisted Treatment Program or MAT is helpful in cases of severe addiction. Significantly at-risk patients like ones that have a history of drug overdose should consider an MAT Outpatient Addiction Treatment program. The overall reduction of harm will keep the patient in a safe state where they can begin to work on their issues like trauma, depression, anxiety, and self-esteem through intensive therapy. Studies show that MAT can be the most effective form of treatment for a person addicted to opioids.
