When you are struggling with opioid addiction, you may want to take drugs such as buprenorphine or Suboxone to help treat the withdrawal symptoms. Unfortunately, this type of drug is just as addictive as heroin and does produce the same euphoric effects. Drug rehab programs and medical detox services in Massachusetts regularly treat addicts who are addicted to buprenorphine or Suboxone. Detox from buprenorphine or Suboxone is not easy, and the best route is to go through a medical detox program. Buprenorphine is derived from an opium extract, and the withdrawal symptoms are similar to what heroin will produce. When you are searching for drug and alcohol treatment programs in Massachusetts, you should be considering what facilities will offer you treatment options to help you become completely drug-free. This is not always easy with opioids, because of how addictive these drugs are. Buprenorphine or Suboxone may not be the best solution for you, because you may find yourself going from one drug to another.

Is Suboxone prescribed?

Suboxone is a controlled substance that is prescribed by qualified doctors, but if the patient is not taking the drug as prescribed, they become physically dependent on it and require detox. Suboxone detox centers are specifically set up to help a Suboxone user safely taper off the drug, and become completely drug-free.
