Opiate withdrawal is often very dangerous, sometimes life-threatening. Suboxone has proven very successful in helping to aid this process. It is essential that this kind of detox process is supervised by a licensed medical professional.
PAX can help you detox off of opioids safely and effectively. Our suboxone doctors will be with you every step of the way.
Unlike abstinence-based addiction treatments, medication-assisted treatment uses suboxone to wean the patient off the substance they’re detoxing from. Withdrawal, especially from opioids, can be life-threatening. In these and many other cases, suboxone use is highly recommended.
Many studies have shown that medication-assisted treatment is extremely effective and safe, much more so than abstinence-based treatment. In fact, SAMHSA, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration approves and recommends this method.
Understandably, it is a concern for many patients and their families that Suboxone will cause a high. Suboxone is a partial opiate agonist, and therefore, does not provide a high. This makes Suboxone an ideal substance to combat withdrawal safely and effectively.
Suboxone assisted detox is only the first step toward recovery, but when combined with guidance, support, and dedication, life long sobriety is within reach. Detox may take anywhere from a couple months to a full year. However long your journey is, it is worth taking. PAX will help you on your journey – call us today to get started.
