The Waterford Medical Clinic offers Suboxone treatment for those who have become addicted to prescription painkillers, heroin or other opioids. Suboxone is a highly effective prescription medication used for initial detoxification as well as short- and long-term addiction treatment. Suboxone helps you safely and comfortably withdraw from opioid addiction without becoming addicted to the medication itself. It blocks the effect of opioids, so no high will be experienced if you relapse while you are on the medication. And it can be taken for as long a period as is needed to ensure that you have completely overcome your addiction.
Suboxone for Heroin
There are benefits to detoxing off of heroin with the use of Suboxone. It is an effective maintenance program and acts as a replacement to heroin. Suboxone is not addictive and is hard to abuse. It decreases heroin withdrawal symptoms and also reduces cravings for opiates. Other benefits of Suboxone are:
- There is no need to go to heroin detox clinics
- Suboxone is very accessible and can be bought at a pharmacy with a prescription
- Suboxone can be self-administered and taken privately
Suboxone helps break the heroin addiction much more easily than quitting abruptly. Suboxone safely and quickly eliminates the use of heroin by serving as a replacement. It is extremely effective in controlling cravings for opiates and reducing withdrawal symptoms.
