About Athol, MA Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a pharmaceutical substance that is used to help treat people in Athol, MA who are addicted to heroin, fentanyl, or any other opiate substance. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine - a partial opioid agonist that eases withdrawal symptoms and cravings 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 only available through a doctor licensed to prescribe Subxone in Athol, MA who have completed addiction requirements to prescribe Suboxone to people addicted to opioids and are seeking help. To minimize the likelihood of abuse, Suboxone doctors may require that patients come and take their dose at their office for the first weeks or months.

Before the year 2000, Methadone was the most widely accepted drug used for opioid addiction management, however, it could only be distributed by a methadone clinic. These limitations made it difficult to access MAT for addiction to opioid drugs. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 created the option for individual practitioners to be able to apply for a waiver, opening the door for individual doctors to prescribe Suboxone. However, 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.
