More About Medication
Some of the medications that can be administered to a patient wanting to stop opioid use are Suboxone, Bunavail, and Zubsolv. The medications are used to treat opioid addiction. It contains a combination of Buprenorphine and Naloxone. Buprenorphine is an opioid medication and naloxone blocks the receptors. Buprenorphine is a chemical medication. This is a fancy way of saying that it sits in the opiate receptors and blocks them so you don’t go into withdrawal.
Medical Assistance Process
We have experienced physicians to administer the correct dosage of medication and monitor the patient’s drug detox results. In the first appointment, the doctor will meet one-on-one with the patient to learn their health history, develop a treatment program, administer the correct dosage, and carefully monitor his or her reactions. A patient will immediately start to feel better and after an hour will be allowed to leave the clinic. The following appointments, the patient will meet with a doctor and the dosage will be decreased. The goal is to receive less and less dosage to the point where the patient comfortably is taken off the drug.
Patients are required to schedule follow-up appointments every 28 days to ensure progression in the program. Counseling is a required component of the treatment. We offer flexible scheduling times to see the doctors and counselors. All visits are by appointment only.
