At Stepping Stones, our staff takes great pride in helping people overcome their addiction using evidence-based practices that have been scientifically proven effective for individuals suffering from this condition. Suboxone is one of the many proven medications used to treat opioid use disorder. It’s a combination of buprenorphine, an opioid agonist, and naloxone, an antagonist that helps reduce cravings for opioids while preventing misuse or abuse of the medicine itself.
Suboxone works by binding to the opioid receptors in the brain while also blocking other opioids from entering those same receptors. By decreasing cravings as well as diminishing withdrawal symptoms related to cessation or reduction of opioid use, Suboxone can facilitate abstinence or even moderation when combined with proper psychotherapeutic interventions and counseling support.
The duration of Suboxone treatment varies from person to person and depends on the individual’s progress in recovery as well as the severity of their addiction. Generally speaking, patients may remain on Suboxone for an extended period of time before transitioning off the medication completely.
