Suboxone for Addiction to Opiods
Our Drug Addiction Treatment Program includes the use of the prescription medication Suboxone. This medication is used to treat adults who are addicted to opioids.
Suboxone contains a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is an opioid medication, sometimes called a narcotic. Naloxone blocks the effects of opioid medication, including pain relief or feelings of well-being that can lead to opioid abuse.
While Suboxone is used to treat narcotic / opiate addiction, it is NOT for use as a pain medication.
Signs of Drug Addiction
Addiction — whether to prescription, street drugs or alcohol —is an incredibly serious problem. If you are worried that you or someone you know my be addicted, there are some common signs to help you know:
Signs YOU may have a drug problem:
- Continuing to take a drug after it’s no longer needed for a health problem.
- More and more of a substance is needed to get the same effects.
- Feeling strange (shaky, depressed, sick to your stomach, sweat, headaches, severely tired, confused, feverish, etc.) when the drug wears off.
- Inability to stop yourself from using the drug, even if you want to, and even when you know bad things are happening in your life due to the drug usage.
- Spending a great deal of your time thinking about the drug — things like how to get more, how good you feel immediately when taking it, or how bad you feel afterward taking the drug.
- Losing interest in things you once liked to do.
- Trouble completing normal daily tasks, like cooking or working.
- Borrowing or stealing money to pay for drugs.
- Having trouble getting along with co-workers, teachers, friends, or family members.
- People complain about how you act or how you’ve changed.
- Sleeping patterns changed — now sleeping too much or too little, compared with how you used to.
Signs SOMEONE ELSE may have a drug problem:
- Changes in personality and behavior like a lack of motivation, irritability, and agitation.
- Bloodshot eyes and frequent bloody noses.
