What it does: Suboxone helps manage withdrawal and pain symptoms while detoxing off other opiates. Suboxone treatment helps prevent patients from misusing opiates.
Summary of Treatment: Patients come into our office for a Suboxone Induction – a process in which our staff monitors the switch from the current narcotic(s) being used to suboxone. After the Induction, patients are usually seen on a bi-monthly to monthly basis for check-ups and to renew their prescription. However, Suboxone is not the final treatment. Our goal is to transfer all patients from Suboxone to Naltrexone.
