About Chatham, AK Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a medication that is used to help treat those in Chatham, AK who are struggling with addiction to heroin, fentanyl, or any other opiate substance. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine - a partial opioid agonist that alleviates withdrawal symptoms and cravings without producing the same euphoria - and naloxone - an opioid agonist that causes withdrawal symptoms if Suboxone is injected directly into the bloodstream. This medically assisted treatment (MAT) option is uniquely accessible through Suboxone doctors in Chatham, AK who have completed addiction requirements to prescribe Suboxone for opioid addiction treatment. To avoid abuse, Suboxone doctors may require that patients come and take their dose at their office at the beginning.

Methadone was previously the most common drug used for the treatment of opioid addictions, with the caveat that it could only be prescribed via a methadone clinic. These limitations made it difficult to access MAT for opiate addiction. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 opened the door for individual doctors to be able to apply for a waiver, opening the door for individual doctors to prescribe Suboxone. It is important to[be aware that there are still strict regulations these doctors must follow that limit treatment, including limits to how many patients they are able to treat for addiction to painkillers and other opiates.
