Finding a Suboxone Doctor in Port Graham, AK

When selecting a Suboxone doctor in Port Graham, AK a good place to start is to research the options that are accessible and covered by health insurance. In addition to finding financially viable doctors, make sure they are qualified. Qualified doctors and mid-level practitioners in the United States must have an X-license in order for them to prescribe Suboxone as a medication for opioid addiction treatment. These individuals should also offer some sort of supplementary addiction support to ensure success whether that involves outpatient programs, or other evidence-based treatment options to increase success while on Suboxone.

Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

An addictive substance in itself, it is commonly debated on whether Suboxone truly works to treat opioid addiction. Some addicts have reported great success with Suboxone treatment, whereas others did not. One study reported that 49% of participants abused prescription painkillers at a reduced rate while on Suboxone, but only 8.6% showed signs of recovery once the Suboxone treatment ended. Other studies did not show long term success with a less than 10% success rate once treatment ceased, including cases where behavioral therapy was provided concurrently.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Port Graham, AK

Addiction, like other diseases, does not have a cure yet. Consequently, there is a lot of contention regarding what the best treatment is. Some say 'abstinence is best, the fewer chemicals we put in our bodies, the better.' Others say, 'I'd rather have my loved one alive and on medication, then die from an overdose.' In summary, the jury is still out; however, when following the prescribed instructions of a licensed Suboxone Doctor in Port Graham, AK, you have a much greater chance of success.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Alaska

Suboxone is only one of several treatment options for opioid addiction. There are alternative medications that have previously been used in Alaska to treat addiction to opiates, including methadone and Naltrexone. These medications might be available to you but have different regulations. For example, only methadone clinics can administer methadone. For people who are determined to get clean and who have a supportive home environment or who live in a sober house, these medication assisted treatment options could be right for you.

There are contraindications for the use of Suboxone for supporting recovery from opioid addiction. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Presence of suicidal thoughts
  • Untreated dual diagnosis
  • Pregnancy
  • alcohol addiction
  • Previous adverse reaction to Suboxone
  • Taking other medications that do not react well with Suboxone
  • Previous abuse of medication assisted treatments

For individuals who may not be able to receive Suboxone treatment, unmedicated detox may be the best alternative option. For individuals who plan to take this route, they can expect severe flu-like withdrawal symptoms and severe cravings. It is highly recommended to seek treatment from a Alaska opioid detoxification facility that can provide continuous care and monitoring.
