About North Pearsall, TX Suboxone Doctors

Suboxone is a medication that is used to help treat individuals in North Pearsall, TX who are addicted to heroin, fentanyl, or any other opioid drug. Suboxone is a combination of buprenorphine - a partial opioid agonist that relieves withdrawal symptoms and cravings without producing the same euphoria - and naloxone - an opioid agonist that causes withdrawal symptoms if Suboxone is injected directly into the bloodstream. This medically assisted treatment (MAT) option is only available through Suboxone doctors in North Pearsall, TX who have completed addiction requirements to prescribe Suboxone to those seeking opioid addiction treatment. To avoid abuse, Suboxone doctors may require that patients come and take their dose at their office at the beginning.

Methadone was previously the most common medication used for opioid addiction management, with the caveat that it could only be distributed by a methadone clinic. This limited access to MAT for opioid addicts. The Drug Addiction Treatment Act of 2000 made it possible for individual practitioners to be able to apply for a waiver, opening the door for individual doctors to prescribe Suboxone. It is important to[be aware that there are still many rules and regulations these doctors must follow that limit treatment. This includes how many patients they are able to treat for addiction to painkillers and other opiates.
