Buprenorphine Treatment & Detox Programs in Missouri

Buprenorphine is used to treat opioid addiction but can cause physical and psychological addictions. Opioid addiction is a problem throughout the United States, and for some opioid addicts in Missouri, it is difficult to beat this addiction. Buprenorphine does become an option because of how difficult opioid addiction can be. However, there are effective treatment options, which do not involve substituting one drug for another drug. Buprenorphine is derived from opium, and does have the same euphoric effects as heroin, but not as potent. Detox from buprenorphine is not easy, and it does require a medical detox program to help an addict successfully get through the withdrawals. The withdrawal symptoms are similar to heroin but can be managed properly. It is not uncommon for opioid addicts to become addicted to buprenorphine. When you go through drug rehab or detox, your goal should be to become completely drug free from all addictive substances.
