About Fritz Creek, AK Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a medication that is used to help treat individuals in Fritz Creek, AK who are addicted to heroin, fentanyl, or any other opioid drug. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. This medication assisted treatment (MAT) option is only available through a doctor licensed to prescribe Subxone in Fritz Creek, AK who have completed addiction requirements to prescribe Suboxone for opioid addiction treatment. To minimize the likelihood of abuse, Suboxone doctors may demand that patients come and take their dose at their office for the first weeks or months.

Methadone was previously the most common medication used for opioid addiction management, however, it could only be prescribed via a clinic licensed for methadone treatment. These limitations made it difficult to access MAT for addiction to opioid drugs. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 created the option for individual physicians to be able to apply for a waiver, opening the door for individual practitioners 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.

Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

An addictive substance in itself, it is commonly debated on whether Suboxone actually helps individuals who are dependant on opioids. Some doctors have said to have experienced great success with Suboxone treatment, but others were not as lucky. One study reported that while on Suboxone there was a decreased 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 recovery with a less than 10% success rate once treatment ended, regardless of whether Suboxone treatment was combined with therapy or not.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Alaska

Suboxone is only one of a multitude of treatment options for opioid addiction. There are alternative medications that have previously been used in Alaska for opioid addiction treatment, 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 people who are motivated to stop using opioids and who have a supportive home environment or who live in a sober house, these MAT options could be a good option for you.

There are contraindications for the use of Suboxone for opioid addiction treatment. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Recent suicidal thoughts
  • Untreated dual diagnosis
  • Pregnancy
  • alcohol use disorder
  • Previous adverse reaction to Suboxone
  • Drug interactions with other medications
  • Previous abuse of MAT

For individuals who are not a good candidate for Suboxone treatment, unmedicated detox may be the best alternative option. For individuals who plan to abstain from heroin use, or any other opioid, can expect severe flu-like withdrawal symptoms and severe cravings. It is highly recommended to get help from a Alaska opioid detox center that can help manage these symptoms.
