About Umkumiute, AK Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a medication that is used to help treat people in Umkumiute, 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 eases withdrawal symptoms and desires to use without producing the same euphoria, 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 Suboxone doctors in Umkumiute, AK who are specially qualified to prescribe Suboxone to people addicted to opioids and are seeking help. To minimize the likelihood of abuse, Suboxone doctors may demand that patients come and take their dose at their office for the first weeks or months.

Methadone was previously the most common medication used for the treatment of opioid addictions, but it could only be prescribed via a clinic licensed for methadone treatment. These limitations made it difficult to access medically managed treatment for opioid addicts. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 created the option 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 strict regulations for these doctors that limit treatment. This includes the number of patients they are able to treat for addiction to painkillers and other opiates.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Alaska

Suboxone is only one of a number of treatment options for opioid addiction. There are alternative substances that have historically been used in Alaska for opioid addiction treatment, including methadone and Naltrexone. These medications might be available to you but have different regulations. For example, methadone can only be administered at a licensed methadone clinic and not by an individual practitioner. For addicts who are motivated to break free from addiction and who have access to a safe and supportive living environment, these MAT options might work for you.

The following are indications that an individual is NOT a valid candidate for Suboxone treatment:

  • Recent thoughts of suicide
  • Untreated dual diagnosis
  • Pregnancy
  • Alcohol dependence
  • Previous allergic reaction to Suboxone
  • Drug interactions with other medications
  • Past abuse of medication assisted treatments

Addicts who are not a solid candidate for Suboxone treatment, abstinence may be the best alternative option. Addicts who plan to abstain from heroin use, or any other opioid, can expect severe flu-like withdrawal symptoms and severe cravings. It is strongly advised to get admitted to a Alaska opioid detoxification facility that can help manage these symptoms.
