Buprenorphine is an opioid medication mostly used for the treatment of opioid addiction. Although this medication has become the standard of care for those suffering from opioid addiction issues, in a large number of cases, the patient becomes addicted to the buprenorphine itself. Because buprenorphine is a partial opioid agonist, the drug creates less euphoria, which provides a lower potential for misuse. The idea behind buprenorphine treatment is that it is a safer alternative when compared with full opioid agonists such as oxycodone and heroin.
It is important to remember that with most cases of opioid use disorder, the first step to an effective treatment is a successfull detoxification.
Since buprenorphine base drugs are also opioids, if discontinued, they inevitably will trigger withdrawal symptoms. It is imperative for the safety and success of each patient, that detoxification occur under the care of a physician. When possible, It is a much better option to detox in a full-service hospital while under the direct responsibility of healthcare professionals. Those who attempt to detox on their own, without the proper medical supervision, risk relapsing due to the unbearable symptoms of withdrawal.
