Choosing a Sylva, NC Suboxone Doctor

When choosing a Suboxone doctor in Sylva, NC a good place to start is to research the options that are accessible and covered by health insurance. 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 X-license to be able to prescribe Suboxone as a medication for opioid addiction treatment. 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 ensure the most effective results while partaking in medication assisted treatment.

Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

An addictive substance in itself, it is widely debated on whether Suboxone truly works to treat opioid addiction. Some patients have said to have experienced great success with Suboxone treatment, but others were not as lucky. One study reported that 49% of participants abused prescription painkillers at a lowered rate while on Suboxone, but only 8.6% exhibited success once the Suboxone treatment ended. Other studies have shown similar relapse rates of about 90%, regardless of whether Suboxone treatment was combined with therapy or not.

Alternatives to Suboxone Treatment in Sylva, NC

The pharmaceutical substance Suboxone is made up of of two substances. Those substances are buprenorphine and naloxone, and the combination of the two has been approved by the FDA for medical treatment of opioid addiction. However, in recent years this medication has received significant scrutiny due to the risks of addicts becoming addicted to this drug. We have also seen a rise of patients in medication assisted treatment programs Sylva, NC having unintended overdoses. As a result, this has triggered others to look for alternative options. Alternative treatments patients 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 doctor before choosing which will be most effective to overcome opioid addiction.

Choosing a North Carolina Suboxone Doctor

Success Rates of Suboxone Maintenance and Medically Assisted Detox

Unfortunately, the healthcare industry is rampant with fraud, and even the Suboxone Maintenance industry is not an exception to this. A trusted Suboxone doctor is advised to increase the likelihood of success with MAT assisted treatment.

Suboxone Doctors will either accept insurance or cash pay. Always speak with the Suboxone Doctor, as to what their payment options are.
