Buprenorphine Treatment & Detox Programs in Tennessee

When you are prescribed buprenorphine, there are some severe side effects connected to the drug. This can include respiratory depression, which is a similar side effect for other opioids. Opioid addicts living in Tennessee, who are searching for treatment options, may want to be prescribed buprenorphine. This drug is derived from an opium extract and is not only used to treat opioid addiction, but also treat acute and chronic pain. When you've started taking buprenorphine, there is a significant risk for addiction and dependency. Detox from buprenorphine is not easy, and the withdrawal symptoms are similar to those of heroin, but slightly milder. Buprenorphine does have the same euphoric effects as heroin, but the drug itself is not as potent as heroin. This is a common solution for many opioid addicts, replacing one drug with another drug. This may not be the best solution, and opioid addicts should be finding drug rehab centers that can completely rehabilitate them.
