How effective is Suboxone®?
- Physicians regularly use Suboxone® as a method of opioid addiction treatment. The FDA-approved drug contains the active ingredient buprenorphine and works by suppressing the debilitating symptoms of withdrawal. When taken as prescribed by a medical professional Suboxone® is effective in medication-assisted treatment and enables patients to engage in therapy, counseling and support. A customized Suboxone® dose is based on your medical history, drug history, weight and metabolism. Combined with the holistic therapies offered at Serenity Oaks, Suboxone® serves as a stepping stone toward positive, long-term changes, culminating in sustained remission.
