About Cheshire, MA Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a FDA-approved medication that is used to help treat those in Cheshire, MA who are addicted to opiates, whether pharmaceutical, illicitly-made, natural, or synthetic opiates. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. This medically assisted treatment (MAT) option is only accessible through a doctor licensed to prescribe Subxone in Cheshire, MA who are specially qualified to prescribe Suboxone to those seeking opioid addiction treatment. To avoid abuse, Suboxone doctors may ask that patients come and take their dose at their office for the first weeks or months.

Methadone was previously the most common drug used for opioid addiction management, with the caveat that it could only be prescribed via a methadone clinic. These limitations made it difficult to access MAT for opiate addiction. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 opened the door for individual physicians to be able to apply for a waiver, opening the door for individual practitioners 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 addiction to painkillers and other opiates.
