About Tee Harbor, AK Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a FDA-approved medication that is used to help treat people in Tee Harbor, AK who are addicted to heroin, fentanyl, or any other opioid drug. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone: a partial opioid agonist that relieves withdrawal symptoms and desires to use without producing the same high, and a opioid agonist that causes withdrawal symptoms if Suboxone is injected directly into the bloodstream. This medication assisted treatment (MAT) option is uniquely available through a doctor licensed to prescribe Subxone in Tee Harbor, AK who are specially qualified to prescribe Suboxone to those seeking opioid addiction treatment. To prevent abuse, Suboxone doctors may ask that patients come and take their dose at their office at the beginning.

Methadone was previously the most frequently used pharmaceutical treatment used for the treatment of opioid addictions, with the caveat that it could only be distributed by a methadone clinic. These limitations made it difficult to access medically managed treatment for opiate addiction. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 created the option for individual doctors to be able to apply for a waiver, allowing them 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.
