In addition to finding a physician you can afford, make sure they are qualified. Qualified medical doctors and mid-level practitioners in the U.S. must have an have a particular license, referred to as an x-license, in order for them to prescribe Suboxone as a medication assisted treatment option for an opioid addict. These individuals should also offer some sort of community involvement to ensure success whether that involves outpatient programs, or other evidence-based treatment options to increase success while partaking in medication assisted treatment.

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 provide the same level of care. Unfortunately, there is a high rate of fraud in the healthcare system, and even the Suboxone Maintenance industry is not an exception to this. To encourage a greater success rate while on Suboxone Maintenance, we advise using a trusted Suboxone Doctor.

Treatment via a Suboxone doctor can be paid for by insurance or cash pay. Always inquire with the Suboxone Doctor, as to what their payment options are. Keep in mind that not all doctors accept all insurance plans. If your doctor is in-network with your provider, make sure you ask them what additional out of pocket costs may be associated. Finally, always contact your insurance to determine your deductible, out of pockets, and copays before going to the Suboxone Doctor in Ruth, NC.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Ruth, NC

The pharmaceutical drug Suboxone is made up of of two drugs. Those drugs are buprenorphine and naloxone, and the use of these 2 substances together has been approved by the FDA to combat opioid addiction. However, over the past few years Suboxone has received a great deal of scrutiny due to the risks of addicts becoming addicted to this drug. We have also seen a rise of people in MAT programs Ruth, NC having accidental overdoses. Due to this it has prompted others to search for alternative options. Other options people have invested in include methadone, going cold turkey, Subutex, or vivitrol. Countless options are available and each patient should look into each option available with their physician before determining which will be most effective to combat opioid addiction.

Choosing a North Carolina Suboxone Doctor

There is no shortage of options when selecting a Suboxone Doctor in North Carolina. Choosing a Doctor for Suboxone or Buprenorphine can be tough, and it is critical to do your research. Suboxone is a drug, and like many other medications, abuse is common. Therefore, you and your loved ones must be asking the right questions. Suboxone does not cure addiction, but rather one part of a recovering addict's treatment plan. When looking for a Suboxone Doctor in North Carolina, always be certain that they fit your needs medically, clinically, and financially.

Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

An addictive drug in itself, there is significant uncertainty on whether Suboxone truly works to treat opioid addiction. Some patients have reported 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% 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 behavioral therapy was provided concurrently.

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 drugs that have previously been used in North Carolina to treat addiction to opiates, 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 struggling addicts who are motivated to get clean and who have a supportive home environment or who live in a sober house, these MAT options could be a good option for you.

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

  • Presence of suicidal thoughts
  • Untreated mental health disorder
  • Pregnancy
  • Alcohol dependence
  • Previous allergic reaction to Suboxone
  • Drug interactions with other medications
  • Previous abuse of methadone or Suboxone

For individuals who may not be able to receive Suboxone treatment, going cold turkey may be the only alternative option. For individuals who plan to take this route, they can expect intense flu-like withdrawal symptoms and intense cravings. It is strongly advised to contact a North Carolina opioid detoxification center that can help manage these symptoms.
