How do I know if Suboxone is right for me?

If you have become dependent on an opioid, taking the safe and effective medication Suboxone can help you stop giving in to all of your all-consuming struggles related to your addiction. When taking Suboxone within a medication assisted treatment program, you can put an end to your use of opioids without having to battle against withdrawal symptoms or cravings. To determine if Suboxone is the correct medication for you, speak with your provider.

Can I become addicted to Suboxone?

Yes. Suboxone is a medication that is incredibly powerful, and when abused, can cause both addiction and tolerance to develop. However, when Suboxone is taken within the guidelines of a medication assisted treatment program, it is highly effective and safe to use. Suboxone is made up of buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine triggers the opioid receptors in the brain that are kicked into full gear when substances such as prescription painkillers and heroin are present. Luckily, the use of this medication does not cause an individual to become high. In response to taking this medication, you are able to continue to go through each of your days successfully without physical setbacks.

Will Suboxone show up on a drug screening?

Suboxone will show up on a drug screening only if the panel that is being used is designed to detect it. However, in most cases, typical drug tests do not pick up the presence of this medication. Keep in mind that if you are involved in a medication assisted treatment program, your use of Suboxone is entirely legal.

How long will I need to be on Suboxone?

The period of time that you will remain on Suboxone will be based solely on the decisions of your and your provider. Thorough research has proven that the use of this medication is safe for short- and long-term use. Some patients continue to use Suboxone for months, while other patients take it for years. There are a number of benefits of Suboxone, including blocking cravings and withdrawal symptoms and allowing patients to fulfill their daily obligations. Suboxone’s effectiveness remains the same over time, which means that you can continue to consume it until your provider decides otherwise.

Does Suboxone interact with other drugs or medications?

If you are taking Suboxone, you should make your provider aware of the medications that you might be taking before you begin taking Suboxone. The use of Suboxone and other substance such as alcohol, codeine, heroin, oxycodone, or hydrocodone can all trigger serious side effects. Those who are taking Suboxone should steer clear from the use of sleeping pills, sedatives, and narcotic painkillers. As for other medications, speak with your provider to ensure your safety when taking this medication.

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

Although Suboxone is approved for long-term use, you do not have to continue to use if for a long period of time. If you and your provider come to the conclusion that Suboxone is no longer necessary for your treatment needs, you can begin to slowly taper off of your medication until you are completely clear of it. At this point, you can either stay medication-free or begin consuming another medication.

What is the cost of Suboxone treatment?

The treatment provided at Spokane Comprehensive Treatment Center is personalized to meet the individual needs of each patient. The medications provided, the therapy supplied, and additional services rendered will all impact the final cost of care.
