Buprenorphine Treatment & Detox Programs in Washington

Buprenorphine is a commonly prescribed medication used to treat opioid addiction, and acute and chronic pain. Buprenorphine is used to help opioid addicts in Washington, but when you are prescribed this drug, you do run the risk for becoming addicted to it. Buprenorphine is derived from an opium extract and does create addictive euphoric effects. The effects of buprenorphine are similar to heroin, but not as potent, and the same with the withdrawal symptoms. Detox from buprenorphine is not easy, and many addicts will need a medical detox center. It is easy to become dependent on buprenorphine, and this can make it difficult to stop taking the drug. Unfortunately, this is a common problem for many opioid addicts, who are substituting one drug with another drug. Medication management may not always be the most effective way to treat opioid addiction, but many opioid addicts do struggle with finding the proper help and treatment in Washington.
