How do I know if Suboxone is right for me?

When prescribed Suboxone, patients can experience a reduction in cravings for continued opioid use, as well as an elimination of the withdrawal symptoms that typically occur after the use of an opioid has ceased. Suboxone allows patients to take part in daily activities such as work, school, and driving without impairment or delay, as the use of this medication will not cause cognitive impairment. When taken as directed under the close supervision of a trained medical professional, Suboxone is a safe and effective treatment option for individuals who are battling an addiction to opioids. There are multiple types of prescriptions available through Kelso Treatment Solutions, so patients should work closely with their treatment provider in order to determine the appropriate medication based upon their individual treatment needs and goals.

Can I become addicted to Suboxone?

With buprenorphine and naloxone as its primary ingredients, Suboxone does carry the potential for addiction. When taken as prescribed under the guidance of a trained medical professional, however, the risk for addiction is extremely low. Buprenorphine interacts with the same receptors in the brain that are typically activated by the use of opioids. But, unlike opioids, buprenorphine does not cause patients to experience feelings of relaxation or euphoria.

Will Suboxone show up on a drug screening?

Should a drug screen be required while taking Suboxone, a patient will not test positively, as a specific test is required in order to detect the presence of buprenorphine. However, should a patient attempt to abuse opioids or other substances while in treatment, he or she will then test positively for those substances.

How long will I need to be on Suboxone?

Although Suboxone is clinically proven to be safe for both short- and long-term use, patients are not required to remain on this medication indefinitely. The length of time that a patient stays on Suboxone will vary based upon the individual’s treatment goals. Patients should work closely with their treatment team in order to determine the appropriate length of time for which Suboxone will benefit them and their recovery efforts.

Does Suboxone interact with other drugs or medications?

As the use of Suboxone can negatively interact with other prescriptions and over-the-counter medications, patients should notify their treatment provider of any substances that they are taking prior to using Suboxone. The use of this medication should not be combined with opium, heroin, hydrocodone, alcohol, and/or codeine, as dangerous effects can occur.

What if I no longer wish to take Suboxone? Can I stop or switch to a different medication?

If a patient no longer wishes to continue on Suboxone, he or she should work closely with his or her treatment provider in order to safely taper off of this medication, as abruptly ceasing use of Suboxone can cause patients to experience painful withdrawal symptoms. Once all traces of Suboxone are out of a patient’s system, he or she may then transition to a different medication or remain opioid-free without the aid of a prescription medication.

What is the cost of Suboxone treatment?

The treatment provided through Kelso Treatment Solutions is highly customized to meet each patient’s unique set of requirements and goals. As treatment will vary between patients, so too will the final cost of care. To learn more about Suboxone and the other treatment options that we offer, as well as the final cost of care based upon your individual requirements, please contact Kelso Treatment Solutions today. We are here to assist you or your loved one in safely returning to a life without addiction.
