About Olnes, AK Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a FDA-approved medication that is used to help treat people in Olnes, AK who are addicted to opiates, whether pharmaceutical, illicitly-made, natural, or synthetic opiates. 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 solely accessible through Suboxone doctors in Olnes, AK who are specially qualified to prescribe Suboxone to those seeking opioid addiction treatment. To minimize the likelihood of abuse, Suboxone doctors may demand that patients come and take their dose at their office for the first weeks or months.

Methadone was previously the most common pharmaceutical treatment used for the treatment of opioid addictions, with the caveat that it could only be distributed by a clinic licensed for methadone treatment. These limitations made it difficult to access medically managed treatment for opioid addicts. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 created the option for individual doctors 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 the number of patients they are able to treat for addiction to painkillers and other opiates.
