About Attu, AK Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a FDA-approved medication that is used to help treat those in Attu, AK who are struggling with addiction to opiates, whether pharmaceutical, illicitly-made, natural, or synthetic opiates. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. This medication assisted treatment (MAT) option is solely available through Suboxone doctors in Attu, AK who have completed addiction requirements to prescribe Suboxone for opioid addiction treatment. To avoid abuse, Suboxone doctors may require that patients visit their office to take their doses at the beginning.

Before the year 2000, Methadone was the most widely accepted medication used for opioid addiction management, but it could only be prescribed via a clinic licensed for methadone treatment. These limitations made it difficult to access medication managed treatment for opioid addicts. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 opened the door for individual physicians to be able to apply for a waiver, allowing them to prescribe Suboxone. It is important to[be aware that there are still many rules and regulations for these doctors that limit treatment. This includes how many patients they are able to treat for opioid addiction.

Choosing a Attu Suboxone Doctor

There is no shortage of options when choosing a Suboxone Doctor in Attu, AK. Selecting a Doctor for Suboxone or Buprenorphine can be tough, and it is important to do your research. Suboxone is a drug, and like many other medications, abuse is common. Therefore, you and your loved ones must be asking the right questions. Suboxone is not a cure for addiction, but it can play a major role in the recovery process. If you are searching for a Suboxone Doctor in Attu, AK, always make sure that they match your needs in every way.

Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

An addictive substance in itself, there is significant uncertainty on whether Suboxone actually helps individuals who are dependant on opioids. Some people have reported great success with Suboxone treatment, but others were not as lucky. One study reported that while on Suboxone there was a reduced rate of prescription painkiller abuse at 49%, but only 8.6% showed success once the Suboxone treatment ended. Other studies did not show long term success with a less than 10% success rate once treatment ceased, including cases where additional treatments where provided concurrently.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Attu, AK

Suboxone is only one of several treatment options for those addicted to opioids. There are alternative substances that have previously been used in Attu, AK to treat addiction to opiates, including methadone and Naltrexone. These medications might be available to you but have different regulations. For example, only methadone clinics can administer methadone. For individuals who are motivated to break free from addiction and who have access to a safe and supportive living environment, these medically assisted treatment options might work for you.

The following are indications that an individual is NOT a valid candidate for Suboxone treatment:

  • Presence of suicidal thoughts
  • Untreated dual diagnosis
  • Pregnancy
  • Alcohol dependence
  • Previous allergic reaction to Suboxone
  • Taking other medications that do not react well with Suboxone
  • Past abuse of methadone or Suboxone

Addicts who may not be able to receive Suboxone treatment, abstinence may be the best alternative option. Addicts who plan to abstain from heroin use, or any other opioid, can expect intense flu-like withdrawal symptoms and intense cravings. It is strongly advised to reach out to a Attu, AK opioid detox center that can help manage these symptoms.

Choosing a Alaska Suboxone Doctor

There are plenty of options when selecting a Suboxone Doctor in Alaska. Choosing a Doctor for Suboxone or Buprenorphine can be tough, and it is critical to do your research. Suboxone is a drug, and like many other medications, abuse is common. This is why it is critical to get lots of information and get all of your questions answered. Suboxone does not cure addiction, but rather one part of a recovering addict's treatment plan. When looking for a Suboxone Doctor in Alaska, always be certain that they fit what you are looking for.

Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

The success rates of Suboxone and Medically Assisted Detox fluctuate considerably, mostly depending on the quality of care. Not all Suboxone Doctors or Medically Assisted Detoxes provide the same level of care. Unfortunately, the healthcare industry is packed with fraud, and even the Suboxone Maintenance industry is not immune to that. To encourage an increased success rate during Suboxone Maintenance, we advise using a reputable Suboxone Doctor.

Treatment via a Suboxone doctor can be paid for by insurance or self pay. Always speak with the Suboxone Doctor, as to what their payment options are. Remember that not all doctors accept all insurance plans. If they do accept your insurance, make certain you specifically inquire about what additional out of pocket costs may be associated. Finally, always reach out to your insurance to determine your deductible, out of pockets, and copays prior to going to the Suboxone Doctor in Alaska.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Alaska

The opioid addiction treatment drug Suboxone is made up of of two drugs. Those drugs are buprenorphine and naloxone, and the combination of the two has been approved by the FDA for opioid addiction treatment. However, in recent years Suboxone has received significant criticism because of the likelihood of addiction to Subxone. We have also seen a rise of addicts in MAT programs Alaska having accidental overdoses. Due to this it has prompted others to look for other options. Other options addicts have sought out include methadone, abstinence, Subutex, or vivitrol. Various options are available and each patient should research every option available with their physician before selecting which will be most effective to beat opioid addiction.
