About Coffman Cove, AK Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a medication that is used to help treat those in Coffman Cove, AK who are struggling with addiction 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 high, and a opioid agonist that causes withdrawal symptoms if Suboxone is injected directly into the bloodstream. This medically assisted treatment (MAT) option is only available through a doctor licensed to prescribe Subxone in Coffman Cove, AK who have completed addiction requirements to prescribe Suboxone to individuals addicted to opioids and are seeking help. To minimize the likelihood of 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 frequently used medication used for the treatment of opioid addictions, however, it could only be distributed by a clinic licensed for methadone treatment. This limited access to MAT for addiction to opioid drugs. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 made it possible for individual practitioners to be able to apply for a waiver, allowing them to prescribe Suboxone. However, 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.

Choosing a Coffman Cove Suboxone Doctor

There are plenty of options when choosing a Suboxone Doctor in Coffman Cove, AK. Choosing a Doctor for Suboxone or Buprenorphine can be difficult, and it is important to get the proper information. Suboxone is a medication, and like many other medications, abuse is common. Therefore, you and your loved ones must be asking the right questions. Suboxone does not cure addiction, but rather one part of a recovering addict's treatment plan. When looking for a Suboxone Doctor in Coffman Cove, AK, always be certain that they match 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, frequently depending on the quality of care. Not all Suboxone Doctors or Medically Assisted Detoxes are equal. Unfortunately, there is a high rate of fraud in the healthcare system, and even the Suboxone Maintenance industry is not an exception to this. To encourage an increased success rate while on Suboxone Maintenance, we recommend using a trusted 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 depending on the doctor, even if they accept insurance, they may not accept yours. If your doctor is in-network with your provider, make certain you ask them what additional out of pocket costs may be associated. Lastly, always reach out to your insurance to determine your deductible, out of pockets, and copays prior to going to the Suboxone Doctor in Coffman Cove, AK.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Coffman Cove, AK

Suboxone is only one of several treatment options for opioid addiction. There are alternative substances that have historically been used in Coffman Cove, AK to treat addiction to opiates, including methadone and Naltrexone. These medications might be available to you but have different regulations. For instance, methadone can only be administered at a licensed methadone clinic and not by an individual practitioner. For struggling addicts who are motivated to stop using opioids and who have a supportive home environment or who live in a sober house, these medication assisted treatment options could be right for you.

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

  • Recent suicidal thoughts
  • Untreated dual diagnosis
  • Pregnancy
  • alcohol addiction
  • Previous adverse reaction to Suboxone
  • Taking other medications that do not react well with Suboxone
  • Previous abuse of MAT

Addicts who may not be able to receive Suboxone treatment, unmedicated detox may be the best alternative option. Addicts who plan to go through a clean-slate withdrawal can expect intense flu-like withdrawal symptoms and intense cravings. It is strongly advised to seek treatment from a Coffman Cove, AK opioid detoxification center that can provide continuous care and monitoring.

Choosing a Alaska Suboxone Doctor

When looking for a Suboxone Doctor in Alaska there are numerous factors to consider. To get the best success via medication assisted treatment, working with a physician that monitors your progress closely is an important aspect of recovery. Speak with the physician and inquire regarding how closely they monitor their clients, if they typically allow clients to take a few doses of Suboxone home to be self-administered, and how long before they might begin allowing patients to self-administer multiple doses.

Availability, distance, and office hours are also significant factors to consider when searching for a license practitioner. As a result of limits on the number of patients a physician can see, it may be difficult to located a qualified physician in or near Alaska. However, if you work, go to school, or have a family that relies on you, then driving a long distance every day for your Suboxone treatment may be difficult. Our directory or helpline can help you in finding a physician whose location and office hours work well for you and who is currently accepting new patients.

Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

An addictive substance in itself, it is commonly argued on whether Suboxone truly works to treat opioid addiction. Some addicts have said to have experienced great success with Suboxone treatment, but others were not as lucky. One study reported that 49% of participants abused prescription painkillers at a lowered rate while on Suboxone, but only 8.6% showed success once the Suboxone treatment ended. Other studies have shown similar relapse rates of about 90%, including cases where behavioral therapy was provided concurrently.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Alaska

Addiction, like other diseases, does not have a cure yet. As a result, there is a lot of chatter regarding what the best approach to treatment. Some say 'abstinence is best, the fewer chemicals we put in our bodies, the better.' Others say, 'I'd rather have my loved one alive and on medication, then die from an overdose.' In summary, the jury is still out; however, when following the care of a reliable Suboxone Doctor in Alaska, you have a much greater chance of success.
