About Asheville, NC Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a pharmaceutical substance that is used to help treat individuals in Asheville, NC who are addicted to opiates, whether pharmaceutical, illicitly-made, natural, or synthetic opiates. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine - a partial opioid agonist that relieves withdrawal symptoms and cravings without producing the same euphoria - and naloxone - an opioid agonist that causes withdrawal symptoms if Suboxone is injected directly into the bloodstream. This medication assisted treatment (MAT) option is solely available through a doctor licensed to prescribe Subxone in Asheville, NC who have completed addiction requirements to prescribe Suboxone to patients addicted to opioids and are seeking help. To prevent abuse, Suboxone doctors may set forth a rule that patients visit their office to take their doses for the first weeks or months.

Before the year 2000, Methadone was the most widely accepted medication used for opioid addiction management, but it could only be distributed by a methadone clinic. This limited access to MAT for opioid addicts. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 opened the door for individual practitioners to be able to apply for a waiver, opening the door for individual doctors to prescribe Suboxone. to note that there are still strict regulations these doctors must follow that limit treatment, including limits to how many patients they are able to treat for opioid addiction.
