Finding a Suboxone Doctor in Massachusetts

When choosing a Suboxone doctor in Massachusetts one should first do their research on the options that are obtainable and covered by their insurance provider. In addition to finding a physician you can afford, make sure they are qualified. Qualified doctors and mid-level practitioners in the United States must have an X-license in order for them to prescribe Suboxone as a medication assisted treatment option for an opioid addict. These individuals should also offer some sort of community involvement to ensure success whether that involves outpatient programs, or other evidence-based treatment options to increase success while partaking in medication assisted treatment.

Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

An addictive substance in itself, it is widely argued on whether Suboxone truly works to treat opioid addiction. Some people 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% showed signs of recovery once the Suboxone treatment ended. Other studies did not show long term success with a less than 10% success rate once treatment ceased, including cases where behavioral therapy was provided concurrently.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Massachusetts

Suboxone is only one of a number of treatment options for opioid addiction. There are alternative drugs 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 example, only methadone clinics can administer methadone. For struggling addicts who are determined to break free from addiction and who have access to a safe and supportive living environment, these MAT options could be a good option for you.

The following are indications that an individual is NOT a good candidate for Suboxone treatment:

  • Recent thoughts of suicide
  • Untreated mental health disorder
  • Pregnancy
  • alcohol addiction
  • Previous adverse reaction to Suboxone
  • Taking other medications that do not react well with Suboxone
  • Past abuse of MAT

For individuals who may not be able to receive Suboxone treatment, going cold turkey may be the best alternative option. For individuals who plan to go through a clean-slate withdrawal can expect severe flu-like withdrawal symptoms and severe cravings. It is strongly recommended to seek treatment from a Massachusetts opioid detoxification center that can provide continuous care and monitoring.
