Treatment Centers Using Buprenorphine In Arkansas

In the state of Arkansas are some drug and alcohol treatment centers who are set up to help opiate addicts come off of the drugs they are taking. Many of these centers are fully equipped to help addicts go through the withdrawals with different detox and medical detox programs. Many of these treatment programs administer Buprenorphine as part of the treatment program, which is a drug that helps prevent withdrawal symptoms and can also ensure an addict does not overdose on such drugs as heroin or OxyContin. Opiate overdose can occur quite easily, and it does not take much for an addict to use too much or mix the drug with something else.

Did you know this about Buprenorphine Detox?

Buprenorphine is a partial μ-opioid agonist and κ-opioid antagonist with a long half-life and less abuse potential than methadone. For detoxification, buprenorphine is at least equivalent to methadone and is superior to clonidine.

In the state of Arkansas are some different detox facilities that can administer this drug, but it is important to know that this drug can cause withdrawal symptoms if stopped abruptly and the dosage that is given by the doctor should not be increased or mixed with other drugs as there can be dangerous side effects. Buprenorphine can be an effective solution for opiate addicts if it is taken properly and not abused as the drug does become habit forming.
