Suboxone is a medication that combines buprenorphine with the opiate antagonist known as naloxone. Naloxone attaches to the brain’s opioid receptors, but it doesn’t activate them at all. Instead, it entirely blocks opioids from attaching to the receptors and creating any euphoric feelings.

Because buprenorphine on its own has the potential for misuse, many people take Suboxone to avoid the risk of abuse. Not only will Suboxone not produce any opioid effect, but it will also cause immediate withdrawal symptoms if someone tries to misuse it through injection — an effective deterrent to reduce misuse.

Buprenorphine is an opioid, but it works differently than opioids like heroin and oxycodone. This medication is a partial opioid agonist, which is an opioid that attaches to the brain’s opioid receptors and activates them to a far lesser degree than most other opioids. By fastening itself to these receptors, it prevents other opioids from attaching and causing euphoria.

When taken correctly, buprenorphine can lessen the effects of withdrawal, including your cravings for opioids. Then, you can better focus on other aspects of your recovery.

Individual Counseling

This helps you work through past trauma, learn relapse prevention strategies and set goals for your recovery process. Counseling will also encourage you to create support systems and learn positive coping skills.

Tobacco Cessation begins with a discussion with your healthcare professionals. Treatment plans can include medication and/or step-down guided therapy where you can go at their own pace, removing a cigarette/pack/week (or more), reducing the nicotine concentration in their vapes or stretching the amount of tobacco used when dipping, etc.
