About Nicholson, PA Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a medication that is used to help treat individuals in Nicholson, PA who are struggling with addiction to heroin, fentanyl, or any other opioid drug. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone: a partial opioid agonist that alleviates withdrawal symptoms and desires to use without producing the same high, and a 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 Nicholson, PA who are specially qualified to prescribe Suboxone for opioid addiction treatment. To prevent abuse, Suboxone doctors may demand that patients visit their office to take their doses for the first weeks or months.

Before the year 2000, Methadone was the most common 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 medication managed treatment for addiction to opioid drugs. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 made it possible for individual doctors to be able to apply for a waiver, opening the door for individual practitioners to prescribe Suboxone. However, there are still many rules and regulations for these doctors that limit treatment, including limits to the number of patients they are able to treat for opioid addiction.

Choosing a Nicholson Suboxone Doctor

There is no shortage of options when choosing a Suboxone Doctor in Nicholson, PA. Choosing a Doctor for Suboxone or Buprenorphine can be cumbersome, and it is critical to get the proper information. Suboxone is a medication, and like many other medications, abuse is common. Therefore, you and your loved ones must be asking the right questions. Suboxone does not cure addiction, but it can play a major role in the recovery process. When looking for a Suboxone Doctor in Nicholson, PA, always make sure that they fit your needs medically, clinically, and financially.

Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

An addictive substance in itself, it is commonly debated on whether Suboxone truly works to treat opioid addiction. Some doctors have said to have experienced great success with Suboxone treatment, whereas others did not. One study reported that 49% of participants abused prescription painkillers at a reduced rate while on Suboxone, but only 8.6% showed success once the Suboxone treatment ended. Other studies have shown similar relapse rates of about 90%, regardless of whether Suboxone treatment was combined with therapy or not.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Nicholson, PA

Suboxone is only one of a multitude of treatment options for opioid addiction. There are alternative medication assisted treatments that have previously been used in Nicholson, PA to treat addiction to opiates, including methadone and Naltrexone. These medications might be available to you but have different regulations. For example, only methadone clinics can administer methadone. For struggling addicts who are motivated to break free from addiction and who have a supportive home environment or who live in a sober house, these medically assisted treatment options could be a good option for you.

The following are indications that an individual is NOT a valid candidate for Suboxone treatment:

  • Presence of thoughts of suicide
  • Untreated mental health disorder
  • Pregnancy
  • Alcohol dependence
  • Previous allergic reaction to Suboxone
  • Taking other medications that do not react well with Suboxone
  • Previous abuse of MAT

For individuals who are not a good candidate for Suboxone treatment, abstinence may be the best alternative option.
