Buprenorphine Treatment & Detox Programs in Virginia

Buprenorphine is a commonly prescribed treatment for opioid addiction, and acute and chronic pain. Opioid addicts living in Virginia, who chose the route of medication management with buprenorphine, will run the risk of becoming addicted to this drug. Buprenorphine is an opioid, and is slightly less potent than heroin, but does create the same euphoric effects. There are serious adverse side effects with buprenorphine, such as respiratory depression. Buprenorphine will cause physical and psychological dependencies, and it can be difficult to stop. Detox from buprenorphine is not easy, and most addicts will require a medical detox program. You will have to taper off the drug or seek out the help from a medical detox. Drug treatment should also be gotten, because medication management programs do not treat the addiction, despite drug rehab centers giving you buprenorphine during treatment. Opioid addiction is difficult to overcome, but with the right help and treatment, you can become completely drug free.
