About Elm City, NC Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a pharmaceutical substance that is used to help treat people in Elm City, NC who are struggling with addiction to opiates, whether pharmaceutical, illicitly-made, natural, or synthetic opiates. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. This medication assisted treatment (MAT) option is only accessible through Suboxone doctors in Elm City, NC who are specially qualified to prescribe Suboxone to those seeking opioid addiction treatment. To minimize the likelihood of abuse, Suboxone doctors may demand that patients visit their office to take their doses for the first weeks or months.

Methadone was previously the most frequently used medication used for the treatment of opioid addictions, with the caveat that it could only be prescribed via a methadone clinic. These limitations made it difficult to access MAT for opioid addicts. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 opened the door for individual doctors to be able to apply for a waiver, allowing them to prescribe Suboxone. to note that 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.
