How do I know if Suboxone is right for me?

Suboxone is a safe and effective medication to help people who are struggling with an addiction to opioids. If you have developed a dependence on an opioid, taking Suboxone as part of a medication assisted treatment program can help you stop abusing these drugs without experiencing cravings or the onset of withdrawal symptoms. The only way to know for sure if Suboxone is right for you is to consult with a qualified professional who can assess your needs and determine which type of treatment is best for you.

Can I become addicted to Suboxone?

Yes. Suboxone is a strong medication that, like many other medications, can lead to tolerance and addiction if abused. However, when used as directed as part of a medically sound addiction treatment program, Suboxone is safe and effective. Suboxone is composed of two substances: buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine interacts with the same receptors in the brain that are activated by heroin, prescription painkillers, and similar substances, yet does not produce the euphoric high that is associated with these drugs. Thus, buprenorphine allows you to get through the day without experiencing either drug cravings or withdrawal symptoms.

Will Suboxone show up on a drug screening?

Suboxone will not cause a positive result on standard drug screenings that test for commonly abused opioids. Buprenorphine, which is the primary active ingredient in Suboxone, will only show up on a drug screening if the test is specifically designed to detect it. Of course, if you are enrolled in a licensed medication assisted drug treatment program, and you are using Suboxone with a legitimate prescription and under the direction of a qualified healthcare provider, your use of Suboxone is not illegal.

How long will I need to be on Suboxone?

Determining the ideal length of time for you to continue taking Suboxone is a decision that can only be made by you and your doctor. Significant research has shown that Suboxone is safe and effective for both short-term and long-term use. Some people take Suboxone for a few months, and then decide to taper off, while others remain in Suboxone maintenance programs for years. Among the many benefits of Suboxone is that the medication blocks cravings and withdrawal symptoms while allowing you to remain clear-headed and capable of working, attending school, driving, participating in therapy, and otherwise meeting your daily obligations. The medication’s effectiveness does not erode over time, meaning you can continue to take Suboxone until you and your healthcare provider decide otherwise.

Does Suboxone interact with other drugs or medications?

As is the case with most prescription medications, you should inform your healthcare provider of all medications you are taking before beginning a Suboxone program. Suboxone will cause a strong reaction when taken in combination with other opiates (including, but not limited to, heroin, opium, oxycodone, hydrocodone, and codeine) and/or alcohol. People who are taking Suboxone should not take sleeping pills, sedatives, or narcotic pain medications, and should not drink alcohol. As for other medications, please consult with your doctor to determine the safest way for you to proceed.

What if I no longer wish to take Suboxone? Can I stop or switch to a different medication?

Though Suboxone is safe for long-term use, starting on a Suboxone program does not mean you will have to take the medication for the rest of your life. If you and your healthcare provider determine that Suboxone is not the most effective medication for you, or if you have progressed far enough in your recovery that you are ready to end the medication assisted phase of your treatment, you can slowly taper your Suboxone use with progressively smaller doses until your body is free of the medication. Depending upon your objectives, you may then either switch to a different medication or attempt to stay opioid-free without the assistance of medication.

What is the cost of Suboxone treatment?

Treatment at Indiana Comprehensive Treatment Centers is a highly personalized experience that includes medications like Suboxone, multiple therapy sessions, and other services as deemed both necessary and appropriate. Because your treatment will be customized to meet your specific needs, the cost of your care will depend upon a number of unique factors. To discuss your needs, and to determine the price of your medication and therapy, please contact one of our intake experts at your convenience.
