Finding a Suboxone Doctor in Manokotak, AK

When selecting a Suboxone doctor in Manokotak, AK one should first do their research on the options that are accessible and covered by their insurance provider. Once you have a list of resources that meet your financial criteria make sure the physicians are qualified. Qualified doctors and mid-level practitioners in the U.S. must have an X-license in order for them to prescribe Suboxone to individuals battling opioid addiction. 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 increase success while partaking in medication assisted treatment.

Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

An addictive drug in itself, it is commonly argued on whether Suboxone truly works to treat opioid addiction. 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% exhibited abstinence once the Suboxone treatment had` ceased. Other studies have shown similar relapse rates of about 90%, regardless of whether Suboxone treatment was combined with therapy or not.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Manokotak, AK

Suboxone is only one of numerous treatment options for those addicted to opioids. There are alternative substances that have previously been used in Manokotak, AK 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 addicts who are motivated to break free from addiction and who have a supportive home environment or who live in a sober house, these medication assisted treatment options might work for you.

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

  • Recent thoughts of suicide
  • Untreated mental health disorder
  • Pregnancy
  • alcohol use disorder
  • Previous allergic reaction to Suboxone
  • Drug interactions with other medications
  • Previous abuse of medication assisted treatments

For individuals who are not a solid candidate for Suboxone treatment, going cold turkey may be the only 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 strongly recommended to contact a Manokotak, AK opioid detoxification center that can provide continuous care and monitoring.

Choosing a Alaska Suboxone Doctor

When choosing a Suboxone Doctor in Alaska there are a few important factors to think about. To get the best outcome via medication assisted treatment, working with a practitioner that monitors your progress closely is critical for success. Connect with the license practitioner and inquire regarding how closely they monitor their clients, if they typically allow patients to self-manage taking doses, and how long before they typically start allowing patients to self-administer multiple doses.

Availability, distance, and office hours are also main factors to consider when searching for a license practitioner. As a result of limits on the number of patients a license practitioner can care for, it may be difficult to identify a qualified license practitioner in or near Alaska. However, if you work, go to school, or have a family that relies on you, then traveling a long distance every day for your Suboxone treatment might not be practical. Our directory or helpline can help you in selecting a license practitioner whose location and office hours work well for you and who is currently taking new patients.
