About Pelican, AK Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a medication that is used to help treat those in Pelican, AK who are struggling with addiction to heroin, fentanyl, or any other opiate substance. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. This medication assisted treatment (MAT) option is uniquely available through Suboxone doctors in Pelican, AK who are specially qualified to prescribe Suboxone for opioid addiction treatment. To avoid abuse, Suboxone doctors may require that patients visit their office to take their doses for the first weeks or months.

Before the year 2000, Methadone was the most widely accepted medication used for the treatment of opioid addictions, however, it could only be prescribed via a methadone clinic. This limited access to medication managed treatment for opioid addicts. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 opened the door for individual doctors to be able to apply for a waiver, opening the door for individual practitioners to prescribe Suboxone. It is important to[be aware 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 opioid addiction.

Choosing a Pelican Suboxone Doctor

When looking for a Suboxone Doctor in Pelican, AK there are a few important factors to consider. To ensure success via medication assisted treatment, selecting a practitioner that monitors your progress closely is important for success. Speak with the Suboxone doctor and ask them their Suboxone treatment practices, if they ever allow patients to self-manage taking doses, and how long before they might begin allowing patients to self-administer multiple doses.

Availability, distance, and office hours are also important factors to consider when looking for a physician. As a result of limits on the number of patients a Suboxone doctor can care for, it may be difficult to find a qualified Suboxone doctor in or near Pelican, AK. However, if you work, go to school, or have a family that relies on you, then driving across town for your Suboxone treatment might not be practical.
