Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

An addictive substance in itself, it is widely debated on whether Suboxone actually helps individuals who are dependant on opioids. Some addicts have said to have experienced great success with Suboxone treatment, whereas others did not. 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 ended. 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 Slana, AK

There are alternative medications that have previously been used in Slana, AK for opioid addiction treatment, including methadone and Naltrexone.

  • Recent thoughts of suicide
  • Untreated dual diagnosis
  • Pregnancy
  • alcohol addiction
  • Previous adverse reaction to Suboxone
  • Drug interactions with other medications
  • Previous abuse of MAT

People who may not be able to receive Suboxone treatment, going cold turkey may be the best alternative option. People who plan to abstain from heroin use, or any other opioid, can expect intense flu-like withdrawal symptoms and intense cravings. It is strongly advised to get help from a Slana, AK opioid detox facility that can provide continuous care and monitoring.
