About Hogatza, AK Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a FDA-approved medication that is used to help treat individuals in Hogatza, AK who are addicted to heroin, fentanyl, or any other opioid drug. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine - a partial opioid agonist that relieves withdrawal symptoms and cravings without producing the same high - and naloxone - an opioid agonist that causes withdrawal symptoms if Suboxone is injected directly into the bloodstream. This medically assisted treatment (MAT) option is only accessible through a doctor licensed to prescribe Subxone in Hogatza, AK who have completed addiction requirements to prescribe Suboxone for opioid addiction treatment. To prevent abuse, Suboxone doctors may demand that patients visit their office to take their doses 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 methadone clinic. These limitations made it difficult to access MAT for addiction to opioid drugs. 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 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.
