About Lockwood, MO Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a medication that is used to help treat individuals in Lockwood, MO who are struggling with addiction to heroin, fentanyl, or any other opiate substance. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone: a partial opioid agonist that alleviates withdrawal symptoms and cravings without producing the same high, and a 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 Lockwood, MO who are specially qualified to prescribe Suboxone for opioid addiction treatment. To minimize the likelihood of abuse, Suboxone doctors may ask that patients come and take their dose at their office at the beginning.

Before the year 2000, Methadone was the most common pharmaceutical treatment used for the treatment of opioid addictions, but it could only be prescribed via a methadone clinic. These limitations made it difficult to access MAT for addiction to opioid drugs. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 opened the door for individual physicians to be able to apply for a waiver, allowing them to prescribe Suboxone. However, there are still strict regulations for these doctors that limit treatment, including limits to how many patients they are able to treat for addiction to painkillers and other opiates.
