Medication-Assisted Treatment With Buprenorphine

AppleGate Recovery offers buprenorphine treatment for addiction in Lake Charles, LA.

Buprenorphine is a form of medication-assisted opioid treatment that helps ease the intensity of withdrawals and reduces cravings experienced during recovery. Suboxone® is the most widely known buprenorphine compound used for addiction treatment. Other brand names include ZubSolv® and Bunavail®.

When you use an opioid, it attaches to the endorphin receptors in the brain. Opioids target the brain’s reward system and flood it with dopamine, which can lead to addiction or dependence.  When you don’t take the opiates, your brain and body go into a state of withdrawal, which can be painful and debilitating.

At our Lake Charles clinic, our medication-assisted treatment can help ease the intensity of opioid withdrawals. During treatment, patients will work with an experienced physician to determine the right medication and dosage for them.

If you or a loved one is struggling with opioid addiction, contact our addiction treatment clinic in Lake Charles, LA.
