About Walkers Mill, PA Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a medication that is used to help treat individuals in Walkers Mill, PA who are struggling with addiction to heroin, fentanyl, or any other opiate substance. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone: a partial opioid agonist that relieves withdrawal symptoms and cravings without producing the same high, and a opioid agonist that causes withdrawal symptoms if Suboxone is injected directly into the bloodstream. This medication assisted treatment (MAT) option is solely accessible through a doctor licensed to prescribe Subxone in Walkers Mill, PA who are specially qualified to prescribe Suboxone for opioid addiction treatment. To prevent abuse, Suboxone doctors may require that patients come and take their dose at their office for the first weeks or months.

Before the year 2000, Methadone was the most common drug used for the treatment of opioid addictions, but it could only be distributed by a methadone clinic. This limited access to medically managed treatment for opioid addicts. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 created the option for individual doctors to be able to apply for a waiver, allowing them 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 addiction to painkillers and other opiates.

Choosing a Walkers Mill Suboxone Doctor

There is no shortage of options when in the market for a Suboxone Doctor in Walkers Mill, PA. Selecting a Doctor for Suboxone or Buprenorphine can be cumbersome, and it is imperative to do your research. Suboxone is a drug, and like many other medications, abuse is common. This is why it is important to get lots of information and get all of your questions answered. Suboxone is not a cure for addiction, but rather one part of a recovering addict's treatment plan. When looking for a Suboxone Doctor in Walkers Mill, PA, always make sure that they match what you are looking for.

Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

An addictive substance in itself, there is lots of uncertainty on whether Suboxone truly works to treat opioid addiction. Some doctors have reported great success with Suboxone treatment, whereas others did not. One study reported that 49% of participants abused prescription painkillers at a decreased rate while on Suboxone, but only 8.6% showed abstinence once the Suboxone treatment had` ceased. Other studies did not show long term success with a less than 10% success rate once treatment ceased, regardless of whether Suboxone treatment was combined with therapy or not.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Walkers Mill, PA

Suboxone is only one of a number of treatment options for those addicted to opioids. There are alternative substances that have previously been used in Walkers Mill, PA to treat addiction to opiates, including methadone and Naltrexone.

For struggling addicts who are motivated to find recovery and who have access to a safe and supportive living situation, these medication assisted treatment options might work for you.

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

  • Presence of suicidal thoughts
  • Untreated mental health disorder
  • Pregnancy
  • alcohol use disorder
  • Previous allergic reaction to Suboxone
  • Drug interactions with other medications
  • Past abuse of medication assisted treatments
