Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Massachusetts

Suboxone is only one of a number of treatment options for those addicted to opioids. There are alternative medication assisted treatments that have historically been used in Massachusetts to treat addiction to opiates, including methadone and Naltrexone. These medications might be available to you but have different regulations. For instance, methadone can only be administered at a licensed methadone clinic and not by an individual practitioner. For individuals who are ready to find recovery and who have a supportive home environment or who live in a sober house, these MAT options might work for you.

There are contraindications for the use of Suboxone for opioid addiction treatment. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Presence of thoughts of suicide
  • Untreated mental health disorder
  • Pregnancy
  • alcohol use disorder
  • Previous allergic reaction to Suboxone
  • Drug interactions with other medications
  • Past abuse of MAT

Addicts who are not a good candidate for Suboxone treatment, going cold turkey 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 highly advised to contact a Massachusetts opioid detox center that can provide continuous care and monitoring.
