About Kachemak City, AK Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a FDA-approved medication that is used to help treat those in Kachemak City, AK who are addicted to heroin, fentanyl, or any other opiate substance. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone: a partial opioid agonist that alleviates withdrawal symptoms and cravings 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 solely available through a doctor licensed to prescribe Subxone in Kachemak City, AK who are specially qualified to prescribe Suboxone to individuals addicted to opioids and are seeking help. To minimize the likelihood of abuse, Suboxone doctors may ask that patients come and take their dose at their office for the first weeks or months.

Before the year 2000, Methadone was the most frequently used medication used for the treatment of opioid addictions, however, it could only be prescribed via a clinic licensed for methadone treatment. These limitations made it difficult to access MAT for opiate addiction. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 made it possible for individual physicians to be able to apply for a waiver, allowing them to prescribe Suboxone. It is important to[be aware that there are still many rules and 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 Kachemak City, AK Suboxone Doctor

When choosing a Suboxone doctor in Kachemak City, AK one should first do their research on the options that are available and covered by their insurance provider. In addition to finding financially viable doctors, make sure they are qualified. Qualified medical doctors and mid-level practitioners in America must have an X-license in order for them to prescribe Suboxone as a medication for opioid addiction treatment. These individuals should also offer some sort of community involvement to ensure success whether that involves outpatient programs, or other evidence-based treatment options to ensure the most effective results while on Suboxone.

Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

An addictive substance in itself, there is lots of uncertainty on whether Suboxone truly works to treat opioid addiction. Some patients 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 signs of recovery once the Suboxone treatment had` ceased. Other studies did not show long term success with a less than 10% success rate once treatment ceased, including cases where behavioral therapy was provided concurrently.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Kachemak City, AK

Suboxone is only one of several treatment options for opioid addiction. There are alternative medication assisted treatments that have previously been used in Kachemak City, AK to treat addiction to opiates, including methadone and Naltrexone. These medications might be available to you but have different regulations. For example, methadone can only be administered at a licensed methadone clinic and not by an individual practitioner. For struggling addicts who are ready to get clean and who have access to a safe and supportive living environment, these medically assisted treatment options might work for you.

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

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

Addicts who are not a good candidate for Suboxone treatment, abstinence may be the best alternative option. Addicts who plan to abstain from heroin use, or any other opioid, can expect intense flu-like withdrawal symptoms and intense cravings. It is strongly recommended to get help from a Kachemak City, AK opioid detox center that can provide continuous care and monitoring.

Choosing a Alaska Suboxone Doctor

Suboxone is a prescription, 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 Alaska, always be certain that they fit 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, usually 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 immune to that. To encourage an increased success rate during Suboxone Maintenance, we advise using a trusted Suboxone Doctor.

Suboxone Doctors will either accept insurance or cash pay. Always talk 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 they do accept your insurance, make certain you specifically inquire about what additional out of pocket costs may be associated. Finally, always contact your insurance to confirm your deductible, out of pockets, and copays before going to the Suboxone Doctor in Alaska.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Alaska

Addiction, like other diseases, does not have a cure yet. Consequently, there is a lot of debate regarding what the best treatment plan is. 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.' Very simply, the debate it ongoing; however, when following the care of a reliable Suboxone Doctor in Alaska, you have a much greater chance of success.
