About Badger, AK Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a medication that is used to help treat people in Badger, AK who are addicted to opiates, whether pharmaceutical, illicitly-made, natural, or synthetic opiates. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone: a partial opioid agonist that relieves withdrawal symptoms and desires to use without producing the same euphoria, and a opioid agonist that causes withdrawal symptoms if Suboxone is injected directly into the bloodstream. This medication assisted treatment (MAT) option is uniquely accessible through Suboxone doctors in Badger, AK who are specially qualified to prescribe Suboxone for opioid addiction treatment. To avoid abuse, Suboxone doctors may ask that patients visit their office to take their doses at the beginning.

Methadone was previously the most frequently used drug used for the treatment of opioid addictions, however, it could only be distributed by a methadone clinic. This limited access to medically managed treatment for opiate addiction. 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. However, there are still many rules and regulations for these doctors that limit treatment, including limits to the number of patients they are able to treat for opioid addiction.
