Buprenorphine Treatment & Detox Programs in Iowa

Buprenorphine is listed as Schedule III drug, and is used to treat opioid addiction, but has the same addictive properties as heroin. Even a small amount of buprenorphine will cause the same euphoric effects as heroin. Detox from buprenorphine will be required, and this can be done through the different medical detox centers in Iowa. When you are selecting the right type of detox, you should ensure you will not be leaving detox dependent upon another narcotic drug. Buprenorphine is commonly prescribed to treat opioid addiction, and this is what causes an endless cycle for some addicts. They become physically and psychologically dependent upon the drug, and they will have a difficult time stopping it. Opioid addiction is difficult to treat, and most opioid addicts will go through detox and treatment more than once. If you are choosing buprenorphine, you should be aware that you can become addicted to it and will need further treatment to stop taking the drug.
