Buprenorphine Treatment & Detox Programs in New York

Buprenorphine is a commonly prescribed treatment for opioid addiction, but unfortunately does cause physical and psychological dependencies. For many opioid addicts living in New York, being prescribed buprenorphine is a common solution. However, the effects of buprenorphine are similar to heroin, but not as potent. Detox from buprenorphine is not easy, because the withdrawal effects are also similar to heroin. Opioid addiction is difficult to go through, but with the right help, an addict can completely overcome his or her addiction. Medical detox can help buprenorphine addicts fully go through the withdrawals safely. After medical detox, the best solution is to attend a drug treatment center, such as a residential treatment program. Despite buprenorphine being prescribed to treat opioid addiction, it does become addictive. It is also commonly abused by many opioid addicts, when they are not able to get the opioid, they are abusing.
