A back injury is what led Paul to becoming addicted to painkillers. After detoxification with Suboxone (buprenorphine) and intensive outpatient counseling at Synergy Recovery he was able to recover from his painkiller addiction.
A Suboxone, or Subutex, treatment program is designed to treat people who have become addicted to opiates. Our treatment center in Bakersfield, CA offers the medication to counteract the typical euphoric effects of opiates, and as a result will keep a patient from becoming “high.”
Suboxone, or Subutex, (the brand name of the drug Buprenorphine) has become a very popular method for treating withdrawals associated with powerful opioids such as painkillers and heroin. It is a long-lasting medication that can hold off withdrawals and cravings for more than 24 hours*. In addition, it begins to work immediately. Our Suboxone treatment center in Bakersfield offers it in a pill form as well as a film that dissolves when placed under the patient’s tongue.
When you talk to Suboxone or Subutex doctors, however, it’s very important to remember that this is a medication meant to act as a bridge between the patient’s “drug of choice” and eventually becoming completely clean. It’s more of a detoxification drug, and one that will help you wean over time.
Many people who are considering a Suboxone treatment program want to know the difference between Suboxone (Buprenorphine) and another medication used to treat opiate and alcohol addiction known as Vivitrol (the brand name of the drug Naltrexone). Vivitrol is used to inhibit the opioid receptors in the brain, and is designed to reduce the chances of a relapse occurring. It’s typically administered through an injection, rather than through a pill or film. Injections are typically spaced about a month apart.
Vivitrol substantially reduces cravings, which is one of the most common reasons that people resume use of opiates and alcohol once withdrawals have subsided. In order for the drug to be effective, however, a patient has to abstain from opioid use for at least one week. Since that’s extremely difficult for addicts, we will typically first use Suboxone to help a patient gradually taper off the habit-forming opiate and then use Vivitrol after a week.
Addiction can be deadly if left untreated, so it’s critically important that you are alert to the signs. The faster you begin treatment, the better your chances of a complete recovery will be. Synergy Recovery Services wants you to be aware of these common opioid intoxication symptoms:
