Detox From Suboxone & Buprenorphine In Oregon

Oregon Suboxone Detox Facilities

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration site do list there are five detox programs operating in the state, which can help people withdrawing from Suboxone. When Suboxone is prescribed, it is not normally meant for a long-term use, as the addict should attempt to become completely drug free. When Suboxone or Buprenorphine is taken for a long time, the dose will increase, and the person can become dependent on it.

Buprenorphine Treatment & Detox Programs in Oregon

When you start to abuse opioids, the addiction can become quite bad, and you will begin to search for treatment options. Unfortunately, for many opioid addicts in Oregon, they do become addicted to drugs such as buprenorphine. This type of prescribed drug is given to opioid addicts to help treat their addiction. However, buprenorphine is an addictive substance, and does create the same euphoric effects as heroin, but not as potent. Buprenorphine is also commonly abused, because it is prescribed to treat acute and chronic pain. It is not uncommon for opioid users to cycle through different prescription medications, and addicts to become addicted to buprenorphine. Opioid addiction is difficult to treat, and many opioid addicts become deterred from getting help because of the withdrawal pain. Detox from buprenorphine is similar to what a heroin detox will be like, but slightly milder. The withdrawal symptoms are the same and can be managed properly through medical detox.

How can I tell if someone requires detox?

If an addict is struggling with withdrawals, and is unable to remain sober for any length of time before they go to drug rehabilitation, a detox program may be required. Drug detox is a viable solution for addicts who are on large amounts of opiates, especially those individuals who have become hooked on Suboxone or methadone.
