Suboxone Addiction And Families

Table of Contents

The rollercoaster ride of suboxone addiction can take people to the very depths of despair. Watching a loved one go through this can be equally as difficult. And while patients make attempts at recovery, it’s important that loved ones do the same.
The friends and families of addicts are often overlooked in the recovery process because the focus is on the patient. Suboxone addiction can be devastating and may very well be the second dependency a person faces. This is because Suboxone is used to treat addiction to opiates including OxyContin.
This opiate replacement therapy is intended to allow patients to switch to a so-called “safer” opiate without having to deal with cravings and opiate withdrawal. But think about it – what kind of sense does it make? A person addicted to opiates needs to detox to become better. Switching to an opiate replacement such as Suboxone, Subutex or Methadone just prolongs the dependency.

Talking To Someone About Your Suboxone Addiction Can Provide The Comfort And Support You Need Now

Loved ones often suffer through the addiction of others, going back and forth between feelings of anger, guilt, shame and blame. Families – and individual relationships – can crumble under the weight of opiate addiction.
Important things to know if you have a loved one suffering from Suboxone addiction:

  • You are not to blame.
  • Opiate addiction can be swift and destructive, even for the strongest of people.
  • Your loved one is suffering from a condition that’s hard to break away from but can be overcome.
  • You need support, encouragement and advice at this time, especially from people who’ve been in your shoes.
  • Significant advances in addiction science allow for swift, effective opiate treatment for your loved one.

Humane Suboxone Addiction Treatment Is Just A Call Away

Waismann Method treatment is renowned for a superior rapid detox program based on professionalism, medical science, and compassion. We’ve been treating patients with opiate dependency for almost 20 years.  Our treatment includes detox in a hospital, surrounded by medical professionals who provide round-the-clock care and monitoring.
Patients from all over the world are first screened through a telephone intake, to discuss Suboxone detoxification options and candidacy.   Once cleared for treatment, the patient is admitted into their private room of a full service accredited hospital in Southern California.  If anesthesia assisted rapid detox is indicated, most patients would be transferred to the ICU on the second day, where they are sedated, and intravenous medication is used to eliminate the physical opiate dependency. This takes place in less than two hours and patients awaken to find that most or all of the withdrawal symptoms have already passed.
Patients then transition in our exclusive recovery center Domus Retreat, where continuous care is provided for a few day throughout the regulation period.  People have come to expect the best from the Waismann Method ® and Domus Retreat Team, where treatment is always highly individualizes based on the specific needs of our patients.
