Opioids are potent painkillers and highly addictive drugs. As a group, opioids include heroin, as well as prescription medications such as fentanyl, oxycodone (Oxycontin®), hydrocodone (Vicodin®), morphine, and codeine. Opioids are so powerful that it’s easy to take a dose large enough to stop your heart unknowingly. This makes them especially dangerous when addiction leads to taking progressively higher doses.
Signs Of Opioid Addiction
There are three vital signs of a substance abuse disordersuch as an opioid addiction:
we uses Suboxone®, Subutex, Bunavail or Zubsolv to help patients break their opioid addiction. Suboxone contains two medications, buprenorphine, and naloxone. Buprenorphine prevents withdrawal symptoms and cravings, while naloxone prevents misuse of Suboxone.
You’ll receive your Suboxone treatment in office or at your homeunder Dr. Islam’s close supervision. During the first stage, you slowly detox, eliminating opioids while taking Suboxone. Once your cravings stop, you’ll continue taking a maintenance dose of Suboxone and start counseling. When it’s time to stop taking Suboxone, Dr. Islam gradually lowers the dose and continues to monitor your progress, adjusting your treatment if your cravings return.
