Suboxone Medical Detox
Suboxone is a drug with opiate-like qualities that is often used to block the withdrawal symptoms of people coming off of heroin or Methadone addictions. Unfortunately, Suboxone is also highly addictive; many patients are unable to stop using Suboxone after they have begun taking it. Many patients stay on Suboxone for a long time as a maintenance drug and then are unable to relinquish the drug, even if they try to wean off of it slowly. We are now seeing many patients come to Addiction Rehab Nationwide to free themselves from their Suboxone addictions even if they have successfully detoxed from heroin or Methadone.
Even if patients are able to wean off of Suboxone over an extended period of time, they usually still have withdrawal symptoms after the Suboxone is gone. We refer to this as Post Acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS), and for Suboxone it can sometimes last for up to six months or much longer if you try self medicate or detox yourself.
Fortunately, Addiction Rehab Nationwide offers a different, and comfortable medical detoxification process from Suboxone a process that we also successfully use with patients who still suffer from other opiate Addictions
