How do I know if Suboxone is right for me?

The only way to determine if Suboxone is right for you is by speaking with your treatment provider, as he or she can professionally assess your needs. Suboxone is a medication that is proven to be safe and effective in stopping opioid addiction. If you are battling with a dependency to one or more opioids, using Suboxone within a medication assisted treatment program can help you stop abusing, as well as prevent withdrawal symptoms and drug cravings.

Can I become addicted to Suboxone?

Yes, Suboxone can be addictive if abused. When taken as a part of a medication assisted treatment program, however, it is considered safe and effective. Comprised of buprenorphine and naloxone, Suboxone works by triggering the same parts of the brain that other opioids like heroin and prescription painkillers do. As a result, you can continue to go through your everyday life without the disorienting high that comes with abusing an opioid.

Will Suboxone show up on a drug screening?

No, Suboxone will not show up on a drug screening, as standard tests are unable to detect this and similar medications. Buprenorphine will only show up on a drug test if the test that is being used is specifically designed to pick up this medication. However, if you are using Suboxone within a medication assisted treatment program and with a prescription, your use is considered legal.

How long will I need to be on Suboxone?

It is important that you work with your treatment provider to determine how long you will remain on Suboxone. Research has proven that Suboxone is safe for both short- and long-term use, and as a result, some individuals take it for longer than others. Suboxone is highly beneficial, as it not only helps keep individuals experience mental clarity, but also stops the onset of withdrawal symptoms and cravings. It is because of this effectiveness that individuals are able to continue to go to school or work, drive, and participate in the recovery process as a whole. Suboxone’s effectiveness does not wear away over time, allowing you to continue using until ready to stop.

Does Suboxone interact with other drugs or medications?

Like other prescription medications, it is important to discuss with your provider the medications that you are taking prior to starting a Suboxone regimen. The use of Suboxone can lead to significant reactions when combined with opioids (heroin, oxycodone, hydrocodone, etc.) and/or alcohol. Those taking Suboxone should always refrain from taking narcotic pain medications, sleeping pills, sedatives, or alcohol. Be sure to speak with your doctor to ensure that you are safely using any and all medications.

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

Even though Suboxone is considered safe for long-term use, that does not mean that you have to use it for a long period of time. If you and your treatment provider decide that you no longer require Suboxone, you can begin tapering off by making dosages smaller and smaller until the medication is out of your body. At that point, you can then talk about switching to another medication or staying off medication completely.

What is the cost of Suboxone treatment?

At Inland Empire Comprehensive Treatment Centers, the care we provide is unique to each patient. Because of this unique approach, the cost of care can vary, especially when things such as method of payment, services rendered, and more can shape an individual’s treatment plan.
