About Altamahaw, NC Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a FDA-approved medication that is used to help treat individuals in Altamahaw, NC who are addicted to opiates, whether pharmaceutical, illicitly-made, natural, or synthetic opiates. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone: a partial opioid agonist that relieves withdrawal symptoms and desires to use 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 solely accessible through Suboxone doctors in Altamahaw, NC who have completed addiction requirements to prescribe Suboxone to those seeking opioid addiction treatment. To prevent abuse, Suboxone doctors may ask that patients visit their office to take their doses for the first weeks or months.

Before the year 2000, Methadone was the most common medication used for opioid addiction management, but it could only be distributed by a clinic licensed for methadone treatment. This limited access to MAT for addiction to opioid drugs. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 made it possible for individual physicians to be able to apply for a waiver, allowing them to prescribe Suboxone. It is important to[be aware that 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 opioid addiction.
