For addicts who are determined to get clean and who have a supportive home environment or who live in a sober house, these medically assisted treatment options could be a good option for you.

There are contraindications for the use of Suboxone for opioid addiction treatment. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Presence of suicidal thoughts
  • Untreated dual diagnosis
  • Pregnancy
  • alcohol addiction
  • Previous adverse reaction to Suboxone
  • Taking other medications that do not react well with Suboxone
  • Previous abuse of methadone or Suboxone

It is strongly advised to get admitted to a Texas opioid detox center that can provide continuous care and monitoring.
