About Chicora, MS Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a medication that is used to help treat people in Chicora, MS 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 euphoria, and a opioid agonist that causes withdrawal symptoms if Suboxone is injected directly into the bloodstream. This medically assisted treatment (MAT) option is uniquely available through a doctor licensed to prescribe Subxone in Chicora, MS who have completed addiction requirements to prescribe Suboxone for opioid addiction treatment. To prevent abuse, Suboxone doctors may require that patients come and take their dose at their office at the beginning.

Before the year 2000, Methadone was the most widely accepted medication used for the treatment of opioid addictions, however, it could only be distributed by a clinic licensed for methadone treatment. This limited access to medically managed treatment for opioid addicts. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 created the option for individual practitioners to be able to apply for a waiver, allowing them 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.
