When a person is abusing opiates, like heroin or prescription drugs, the body starts to develop a tolerance. A tolerance means that increasing amounts of the drug is needed in order for someone to get high. When people try to stop using their opiate of choice, the body goes through withdrawal symptoms and cravings, which makes it very difficult to avoid using again. In the Beechwood Village, KY, Jefferson County area, our suboxone doctors now offer telemedicine services to those seeking a new method of recovering from opioid use disorder.
What is Suboxone?
Suboxone is a drug that is used for treatment of opioid use disorder. Under the supervision of our Beechwood Village, Jefferson County suboxone doctor, a person can receive medication-assisted treatment (MAT) through our telehealth program. The goal of using suboxoneis to get someone off of their opiate of choice and to gradually taper down, quitting the drug completely and allowing the individual to experience total recovery.
How Long Will Someone Use Suboxone?
Usually, our patients take suboxone for a period of several weeks and as the person goes through healing, the dose is tapered down. Because opiate addiction is a chronic, relapsing disease, suboxone should be taken for an extended period of time to prevent relapse. However, our suboxone doctors know every person is different and with consistent monitoring of a patient’s progress, MAT is consistent and effective at healing people from opiate dependence.
