About Lignite, AK Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a medication that is used to help treat those in Lignite, AK who are struggling with addiction to heroin, fentanyl, or any other opioid drug. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine - a partial opioid agonist that relieves withdrawal symptoms and desires to use without producing the same euphoria - 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 available through Suboxone doctors in Lignite, AK who have completed addiction requirements to prescribe Suboxone to those seeking opioid addiction treatment. To avoid abuse, Suboxone doctors may require that patients come and take their dose at their office for the first weeks or months.

Before the year 2000, Methadone was the most widely accepted medication used for the treatment of opioid addictions, but it could only be distributed by a methadone clinic. This limited access to medically managed treatment for opioid addicts. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 created the option for individual practitioners to be able to apply for a waiver, allowing them to prescribe Suboxone. However, there are still many rules and regulations for these doctors that limit treatment. This includes how many patients they are able to treat for opioid addiction.
