About Boerne, TX Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a medication that is used to help treat those in Boerne, TX who are struggling with addiction to heroin, fentanyl, or any other opioid drug. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone: a partial opioid agonist that eases withdrawal symptoms and desires to use without producing the same euphoria, and a opioid agonist that causes withdrawal symptoms if Suboxone is injected directly into the bloodstream. This medically assisted treatment (MAT) option is uniquely accessible through a doctor licensed to prescribe Subxone in Boerne, TX who are specially qualified to prescribe Suboxone to individuals addicted to opioids and are seeking help. To avoid abuse, Suboxone doctors may demand that patients visit their office to take their doses at the beginning.

Before the year 2000, Methadone was the most common drug used for opioid addiction management, however, it could only be prescribed via a methadone clinic. This limited access to MAT for opiate addiction. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 created the option for individual doctors to be able to apply for a waiver, allowing them to prescribe Suboxone. However, there are still strict regulations for these doctors that limit treatment, including limits to how many patients they are able to treat for addiction to painkillers and other opiates.
