About King Salmon, AK Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a FDA-approved medication that is used to help treat individuals in King Salmon, AK who are struggling with addiction to opiates, whether pharmaceutical, illicitly-made, natural, or synthetic opiates. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine - a partial opioid agonist that alleviates withdrawal symptoms and desires to use without producing the same high - and naloxone - an opioid agonist that causes withdrawal symptoms if Suboxone is injected directly into the bloodstream. This medication assisted treatment (MAT) option is only accessible through a doctor licensed to prescribe Subxone in King Salmon, AK who are specially qualified to prescribe Suboxone for opioid addiction treatment. To prevent 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 widely accepted drug used for opioid addiction management, but it could only be prescribed via a clinic licensed for methadone treatment. This limited access to medication managed treatment for opioid addicts. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 opened the door for individual physicians to be able to apply for a waiver, opening the door for individual practitioners to prescribe Suboxone. to note that there are still many rules and regulations for these doctors that limit treatment, including limits to how many patients they are able to treat for opioid addiction.
