About Ballardvale, MA Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a medication that is used to help treat people in Ballardvale, MA who are addicted to opiates, whether pharmaceutical, illicitly-made, natural, or synthetic opiates. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine - a partial opioid agonist that eases withdrawal symptoms and desires to use without producing the same high - and naloxone - an opioid agonist that causes withdrawal symptoms if Suboxone is injected directly into the bloodstream. This medically assisted treatment (MAT) option is only accessible through Suboxone doctors in Ballardvale, MA who are specially qualified to prescribe Suboxone to patients addicted to opioids and are seeking help. To avoid abuse, Suboxone doctors may require that patients visit their office to take their doses for the first weeks or months.

Before the year 2000, Methadone was the most widely accepted pharmaceutical treatment used for the treatment of opioid addictions, however, it could only be prescribed via a clinic licensed for methadone treatment. This limited access to MAT for opioid addicts. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 opened the door 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.
