About Womens Bay, AK Suboxone Doctors

Choosing a Womens Bay Suboxone Doctor

There are plenty of options when searching for a Suboxone Doctor in Womens Bay, AK. Selecting a Doctor for Suboxone or Buprenorphine can be cumbersome, and it is important to do your research. Suboxone is a drug, and like many other medications, abuse is common. This is why it is critical to get lots of information and get all of your questions answered. Suboxone does not cure addiction, but it can play a major role in the recovery process. If you are searching for a Suboxone Doctor in Womens Bay, AK, always be certain that they fit what you are looking for.

Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

An addictive substance in itself, there is significant uncertainty on whether Suboxone actually helps individuals who are dependant on opioids. Some addicts have reported great success with Suboxone treatment, but others were not as lucky. One study reported that 49% of participants abused prescription painkillers at a lowered rate while on Suboxone, but only 8.6% exhibited signs of recovery once the Suboxone treatment ended. Other studies did not show long term recovery with a less than 10% success rate once treatment stopped, including cases where behavioral therapy was provided concurrently.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Womens Bay, AK

Suboxone is only one of several treatment options for opioid addiction. There are alternative substances that have historically been used in Womens Bay, AK to treat addiction to opiates, 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 struggling addicts who are determined to get clean 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 recommended candidate for Suboxone treatment:

  • Recent suicidal thoughts
  • Untreated mental health disorder
  • Pregnancy
  • alcohol use disorder
  • Previous allergic reaction to Suboxone
  • Taking other medications that do not react well with Suboxone
  • Previous abuse of methadone or Suboxone

For individuals who may not be able to receive Suboxone treatment, going cold turkey may be the only alternative option. For individuals who plan to abstain from heroin use, or any other opioid, can expect severe flu-like withdrawal symptoms and severe cravings. It is highly recommended to get help from a Womens Bay, AK opioid detoxification center that can help manage these symptoms.

Choosing a Alaska Suboxone Doctor

There is no shortage of options when searching for a Suboxone Doctor in Alaska. Choosing a physician for Suboxone or Buprenorphine can be cumbersome, and it is important to get the proper information. Suboxone is a pharmaceutical drug, and like many other medications, abuse is common. This is why it is critical to get lots of information and get all of your questions answered. Suboxone does not cure addiction, but it can play a major role in the recovery process. When looking for a Suboxone Doctor in Alaska, always make sure that they fit your needs in every way.

Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

The success rates of Suboxone and Medically Assisted Detox fluctuate considerably, usually depending on the quality of care. Not all Suboxone Doctors or Medically Assisted Detoxes provide the same level of care. Unfortunately, there is a high rate of fraud in the healthcare system, and even the Suboxone Maintenance industry is not an exception to this. To encourage a greater success rate while on Suboxone Maintenance, we suggest using a trusted Suboxone Doctor.

Suboxone Doctors accept various insurance plans and cash payments. Always talk with the Suboxone Doctor, as to what their payment options are. Keep in mind that depending on the doctor, even if they accept insurance, they may not accept yours. If your doctor is in-network with your provider, make certain you specifically inquire about what additional out of pocket costs may be associated. Finally, always contact your insurance to determine your deductible, out of pockets, and copays prior to going to the Suboxone Doctor in Alaska.
