Opioid addicts in Rhode Island who are searching for help, will often come across treatment options that use buprenorphine. There is a significant risk involved with being prescribed this drug because of how addictive it can be. Buprenorphine treatment, and other treatments like it are common for opioid addicts.

Detox from buprenorphine is not easy, and many opioid addicts do struggle with this, unless they find the right type of help. Medical detox programs can be the most effective form of treatment, followed by inpatient drug rehab.
