Choosing a Suboxone Doctor in Newton, MA

When searching for a Suboxone doctor in Newton, MA a good place to start is to research the options that are available and covered by insurance. In addition to finding a physician you can afford, make sure they are qualified. Qualified physicians and mid-level practitioners in the U.S. must have an have a particular license, referred to as an x-license, to be able to prescribe Suboxone to individuals battling opioid addiction. Patients should also enroll in additional treatment programs that support recovery, such as outpatient programs, or other evidence-based treatment options to support a positive outcome while partaking in medication assisted treatment.

Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

An addictive drug in itself, there is significant controversy on whether Suboxone truly works to treat opioid addiction. Some patients have said to have experienced great success with Suboxone treatment, but others were not as lucky. One study reported that while on Suboxone there was a decreased rate of prescription painkiller abuse at 49%, but only 8.6% showed signs of recovery once the Suboxone treatment ended. Other studies did not show long term recovery with a less than 10% success rate once treatment ended, including cases where behavioral therapy was provided alongside Suboxone treatment.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Newton, MA

Suboxone is only one of a multitude of treatment options for those addicted to opioids. There are alternative drugs that have historically been used in Newton, MA for opioid addiction treatment, 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 stop using opioids and who have access to a safe and supportive living environment, these MAT options could be right for you.

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

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