Buprenorphine Treatment & Detox Programs in Vermont

When you start to abuse opioids, you will often be prescribed drugs such as buprenorphine, which is a common treatment method for opioid addiction. The drug is also prescribed to treat acute and chronic pain, because buprenorphine is derived from an opium extract. Opioid addicts in Vermont who are prescribed this drug, will run the risk of becoming addicted to it. Buprenorphine does create the same euphoric effects as heroin, but it is not as potent as heroin. Detox from buprenorphine will not be easy, if you become addicted to the drug. You will need a medical detox program, and these services are available in the state. The withdrawal symptoms are similar to heroin, and the pain will be the same, but slightly milder. Buprenorphine is substituting one drug for another drug, and this may not be the best treatment solution for an opioid addiction. Opioids are difficult to stop using, and the withdrawal pain does make it worse. Yet, the right treatment and help are available, to help you become completely drug free.
