Suboxone & Buprenorphine Detox & Treatment in Idaho

When you become addicted to opioids, it will be difficult to stop using these drugs because of how addictive they are. Prescribed drugs such as buprenorphine and Suboxone are commonly given to opioid addicts. However, for many opioid addicts living in Idaho who are prescribed buprenorphine or Suboxone, they will risk becoming addicted to the drug. Buprenorphine and Suboxone cause the same withdrawal symptoms as heroin and will require a medical detox to safely stop taking the drug. Buprenorphine is derived from an opium extract and is listed as a Schedule III drug because of addictive properties. Detox from buprenorphine or Suboxone is not easy, and you will need medical detox followed by inpatient drug and alcohol treatment. Too many addicts in Idaho become caught up in a cycle of addiction with one drug being replaced by another drug. This may not always be the solution, and you should consider options to become completely drug and alcohol-free.

How is Suboxone taken?

Suboxone is taken as a film strip, and is placed under the tongue and dissolved slowly; each film strip is a different dose and will be prescribed by a qualified doctor. It is important that anyone who is prescribed this drug follows their directions, specifically, and not deviate from the dose given. If a person ends up using too much of the drug, it can have adverse side effects, and the withdrawals can end up being dangerous.
