About Toksook Bay, AK Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a medication that is used to help treat those in Toksook Bay, AK who are struggling with addiction to heroin, fentanyl, or any other opiate substance. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine - a partial opioid agonist that reduces 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 available through Suboxone doctors in Toksook Bay, AK who are specially qualified to prescribe Suboxone to patients addicted to opioids and are seeking help. To prevent abuse, Suboxone doctors may ask that patients visit their office to take their doses at the beginning.

Before the year 2000, Methadone was the most widely accepted medication used for opioid addiction management, with the caveat that it could only be prescribed via a methadone clinic. These limitations made it difficult to access medically 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 doctors 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.
