Are you, or someone you love, dealing with opioid abuse or an addiction?
If so, the medical team at Solstice Health & Wellness understands just how difficult it can be to safely and effectively get rid of an opioid addiction. In fact, many who try to quit “cold turkey” often relapse. This is why it’s important that you have a team who can guide you through the treatment process from start to finish to help you kick that addiction. One way in which to do that is through Suboxone medication-assisted treatment.
What is Suboxone?
Suboxone is one of the FDA-approved medications to treat opioid use disorder (OUD), the other two include methadone and long acting naltrexone. Suboxone helps ease withdrawal symptoms, reduce cravings and prevent relapse allowing you to be engaged in therapy, work, school and other activities.
Since side effects can occur with Suboxone it is important that you visit our health care professionals regularly for checkups and monitoring. When you come in for your consultation, we will be able to determine just how often you should come in. If you have any concerns about the symptoms you are experiencing while on Suboxone, do not hesitate to give us a call.
How does Suboxone treatment work?
Before Suboxone can be prescribed, your doctor will need to perform a history and physical evaluation, obtain labs and provide education and instruction on its use. Since every patient that walks through our doors has different needs and concerns, we tailor all opioid addiction treatment to fit their lifestyle and health. Our goal is to provide a safe, positive environment for patients to receive the treatment they need to get better. We provide patients with long-term treatment and care that is customized to them to prevent relapse.
