About Kelford, NC Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a FDA-approved medication that is used to help treat individuals in Kelford, 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 medically assisted treatment (MAT) option is uniquely available through Suboxone doctors in Kelford, 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.

Before the year 2000, Methadone was the most widely accepted drug used for opioid addiction management, however, it could only be distributed by a methadone clinic. These limitations made it difficult to access MAT for addiction to opioid drugs. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 made it possible for individual doctors to be able to apply for a waiver, allowing them to prescribe Suboxone. to note that there are still many rules and regulations these doctors must follow that limit treatment, including limits to the number of patients they are able to treat for addiction to painkillers and other opiates.

One study reported that while on Suboxone there was a decreased rate of prescription painkiller abuse at 49%, but only 8.6% exhibited abstinence once the Suboxone treatment had` ceased. Other studies did not show long term recovery with a less than 10% success rate once treatment stopped, including cases where behavioral therapy was provided alongside Suboxone treatment.

Some doctors have said to have experienced great success with Suboxone treatment, but others were not as lucky. One study reported that while on Suboxone there was a reduced rate of prescription painkiller abuse at 49%, but only 8.6% showed signs of recovery once the Suboxone treatment had` ceased.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in North Carolina

Suboxone is only one of a multitude of treatment options for those addicted to opioids. There are alternative medication assisted treatments that have previously been used in North Carolina for opioid addiction treatment, including methadone and Naltrexone. These medications might be available to you but have different regulations. For instance, methadone can only be administered at a licensed methadone clinic and not by an individual practitioner. For addicts who are motivated to stop using opioids and who have a supportive home environment or who live in a sober house, these medically assisted treatment options could be right for you.

The following are indications that an individual is NOT a good candidate for Suboxone treatment:

  • Recent suicidal thoughts
  • Untreated mental health disorder
  • Pregnancy
  • Alcohol dependence
  • Previous adverse reaction to Suboxone
  • Drug interactions with other medications
  • Previous abuse of MAT

People who are not a solid candidate for Suboxone treatment, going cold turkey may be the only alternative option. People who plan to abstain from heroin use, or any other opioid, can expect intense flu-like withdrawal symptoms and intense cravings. It is strongly advised to reach out to a North Carolina opioid detox center that can provide continuous care and monitoring.
