About Mifflin, PA Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a medication that is used to help treat those in Mifflin, PA who are addicted to opiates, whether pharmaceutical, illicitly-made, natural, or synthetic opiates. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine - a partial opioid agonist that eases withdrawal symptoms and cravings without producing the same high - and naloxone - an opioid agonist that causes withdrawal symptoms if Suboxone is injected directly into the bloodstream. This medically assisted treatment (MAT) option is solely accessible through a doctor licensed to prescribe Subxone in Mifflin, PA who are specially qualified to prescribe Suboxone for opioid addiction treatment. To prevent abuse, Suboxone doctors may set forth a rule that patients visit their office to take their doses at the beginning.

Before the year 2000, Methadone was the most frequently used medication used for opioid addiction management, with the caveat that it could only be distributed by a clinic licensed for methadone treatment. These limitations made it difficult to access MAT for addiction to opioid drugs. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 made it possible for individual practitioners to be able to apply for a waiver, opening the door for individual doctors to prescribe Suboxone. However, there are still many rules and regulations these doctors must follow that limit treatment. This includes how many patients they are able to treat for opioid addiction.

Choosing a Mifflin Suboxone Doctor

When selecting a Suboxone Doctor in Mifflin, PA there are a number of factors to consider. To get the best outcome with MAT, choosing a Suboxone doctor that monitors your progress closely is an important aspect of recovery. Talk with the Suboxone doctor and ask them how closely they monitor their clients, if they ever allow patients to self-manage taking doses, and the length of time before they typically start allowing patients to self-administer multiple doses.

Some common factors that are important to consider when searching for a physician include whether they are accepting new patients, their office proximity to the patient’s house, and if their office hours align with the patient’s schedule As a result of limits on the number of patients a Suboxone doctor can treat, it may be challenging to identify a qualified Suboxone doctor in or near Mifflin, PA. However, if you have numerous personal responsibilities, then traveling a long distance every day for your Suboxone treatment may be difficult. Our directory or helpline can help you in locating a Suboxone doctor who works well for you and who is currently accepting new patients.

Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

An addictive substance in itself, there is significant uncertainty on whether Suboxone truly works to treat opioid addiction.

One study reported that while on Suboxone there was a decreased rate of prescription painkiller abuse at 49%, but only 8.6% showed abstinence once the Suboxone treatment had` ceased. Other studies have shown similar relapse rates of about 90%, including cases where additional treatments where provided concurrently.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Mifflin, PA

Suboxone is only one of numerous treatment options for those addicted to opioids. There are alternative medications that have previously been used in Mifflin, PA for opioid addiction treatment, including methadone and Naltrexone. These medications might be available to you but have different regulations. For instance, methadone can only be administered at a licensed methadone clinic and not by an individual practitioner. For people who are motivated to break free from addiction and who have a supportive home environment or who live in a sober house, these MAT options might work for you.

  • Presence of suicidal thoughts
  • Untreated dual diagnosis
  • Pregnancy
  • alcohol addiction
  • Previous allergic reaction to Suboxone
