Choosing a Kill Devil Hills Suboxone Doctor

There is no shortage of options when choosing a Suboxone Doctor in Kill Devil Hills, NC. Selecting a physician for Suboxone or Buprenorphine can be cumbersome, and it is imperative to get the proper information. Suboxone is a medication, and like many other medications, abuse is common.

When looking for a Suboxone Doctor in Kill Devil Hills, NC, always be certain that they match your needs in every way.

Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

The success rates of Suboxone and Medically Assisted Detox fluctuate considerably, usually depending on the quality of care. Not all Suboxone Doctors or Medically Assisted Detoxes are the same. Unfortunately, the healthcare industry is rampant with fraud, and even the Suboxone Maintenance industry is not immune to that. A trusted Suboxone doctor is recommended to improve the chances of success with medically assisted treatment.

Treatment via a Suboxone doctor can be paid for by insurance or self pay. Always speak with the Suboxone Doctor, as to what their payment options are. Remember that not all doctors accept all insurance plans. If you are eligible for coverage under your insurance plan, make certain you specifically inquire about what additional out of pocket costs may be associated. Finally, always reach out to your insurance to determine your deductible, out of pockets, and copays prior to going to the Suboxone Doctor in Kill Devil Hills, NC.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Kill Devil Hills, NC

There are alternative medications that have historically been used in Kill Devil Hills, NC for opioid addiction treatment, including methadone and Naltrexone. These medications might be available to you but have different regulations. For example, methadone can only be administered at a licensed methadone clinic and not by an individual practitioner. For individuals who are motivated to stop using opioids and who have access to a safe and supportive living situation, these MAT options might work for you.

  • Pregnancy
  • Alcohol dependence
  • Previous allergic reaction to Suboxone

Qualified medical doctors and mid-level practitioners in the U.S. must have an X-license in order for them to prescribe Suboxone to individuals battling opioid addiction. Patients should also enroll in additional treatment programs that encourage recovery, such as outpatient programs, or other evidence-based treatment options to ensure the most effective results while on Suboxone.

Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

An addictive drug in itself, there is lots of uncertainty on whether Suboxone actually helps individuals who are dependant on opioids. Some addicts have reported great success with Suboxone treatment, whereas others did not. One study reported that while on Suboxone there was a decreased rate of prescription painkiller abuse at 49%, but only 8.6% exhibited signs of recovery once the Suboxone treatment ended. Other studies did not show long term recovery with a less than 10% success rate once treatment stopped, including cases where additional treatments where provided concurrently.
