Physicians and patients do not realize that a Suboxone treatment has its own addiction risks. Medical detox should be the first step of an effective Suboxone addiction treatment program. Detox should be followed by individual therapy and emotional support.
Is Suboxone an Addictive Drug?
Suboxone is a medication that consists of buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine reduces withdrawal symptoms because it is also an opioid. Unlike other opioids such as heroin, Suboxone has a ceiling effect. In other words, the drug effects reach a certain level regardless of the dosage; which makes less likely to be abused. Most patients can achieve stabilization with a daily dose of 8–16 mg of Suboxone or Subutex.
The problem with using Suboxone is that the person continues to crave opioids. They might choose to go back to their opioid of choice may never stop using Suboxone, thus developing a Suboxone abuse has become more and more common. In some cases, abusers will dissolve Suboxone Strips in water and inject the solution. This way, the drug bypasses the stomach, which makes the naloxone ineffective. Using Suboxone intravenously is the riskiest form of abuse. An injection delivers faster effects and a more concentrated dose of the drug, what can be fatal.
Since its release in 2002, Suboxone has been dispensed under brand names:
- Suboxone Film
There are obvious warning signs of Suboxone dependency. You may notice an increase of the needed dosage and behavioral changes are also common signs of addiction When you try to withdraw from Suboxone, symptoms are similar to those that occur when you quit other opioid drugs.
Suboxone addiction typically requires a thorough inpatient medical detox in order to start the recovery process. Hospital detox care generally is the most successful method. Anesthesia-assisted detox offers an effective treatment solution for patients with addiction to all opiates. Our Drug Treatment combines the correction of chemical imbalances, psychological evaluations and latest medical advancement to control cravings. Other detox treatment centers lack knowledgeable medical staff. Therefore they ignore opiate and other chemical deficiencies, resulting in ineffective treatment outcomes and revolving doors.
We use an advanced Suboxone rapid detox treatment. Therefore, we’ve maintained the highest success rate in the field of opiate dependency for the last 20 years. The Waismann Method of Rapid Detox treats Suboxone addiction as a physical condition that patients can overcome with advanced medical techniques. We assess the underlying issues associated with your addiction and treat the physical cravings. Professionals will work with you individually to support you through the transition.
Rapid Detox for Suboxone
The Waismann Method of Rapid Detoxification offers a humane treatment to individuals physically dependent on Suboxone. We receive patients from all corners of the world. First, patients are admitted into their private rooms at our accredited hospital located exclusively in Southern California. The hospital is critical to provide close monitoring and access to additional medical services and specialists. Our quadruple board-certified medical director places the patient under sedation for 30 to 90 minutes. Additionally, the Waismann Method eliminates the cravings that often accompany traditional suboxone detox treatments.
We have designed all Suboxone treatments to fit patients’ specific needs, and medical staff determines the treatment plan before admission. Patients are usually in the hospital for two to three days before discharging to a private suite at our recovery center, Domus Retreat. While patients are recovering, we work with the emotional and physical transition in order to maximize the effectiveness and comfort of the treatment. Domus Retreat offers patients a chance to regain their physical and mental strength with the supervision and assistance of our qualified professional staff.
The Waismann Method allows most patients to return to a productive life in a matter of days. Also, our treatment eliminates the need to spend months in hospitals or rehab programs.
