Suboxone is a sublingual tablet that contains Buprenorphine HCL as well as Naloxone HCL dihydrate. It is used for the treatment of opiate addictions such as Vicodin, Oxycontin, Lortab, Percodan, Percocet, Stadol, Demerol, Dilaudid, Codeine, Heroin, and Methadone. It is a Schedule III Narcotic under the Controlled Substances Act.
Suboxone is the preferred medication for maintenance treatment due to the presence of naloxone in the formulation. We will slowly adjust the medication until the maintenance dose of 16mg a day is achieved without discomfort. We will then work with you and your needs to create a timeline to reduce the dosage and stop the treatment altogether.
We provide a “client-specific” treatment plan, which means we will tailor our program for you or a loved one, and let you recover at your own pace.
Under the Drug Addiction Treatment Act (DATA) of 2000, prescription use of medications in the treatment of opioid dependence is limited to physicians who meet certain qualifying requirements and must have written notification to the Secretary of Health and Human Services of their intent to utilize Buprenorphine HCL for the treatment of opioid dependence.
