    Information is Power

    I need help. How do I get started with treatment?

    Our team will guide you at every step in your path to recovery. You begin with making an appointment and can be assured to seen right away. Once you have met with your doctor, he or she, will determine what medication is best for you, along with dosage and frequency. You will then be seen for a follow-up visit in one week's time. Depending on your progress your physician may decide to see you every 2 to 4 weeks.

    What is Buprenorphine or Suboxone?

    Buprenorphine (also known as Suboxone, Bunavail, Zubsolv or Subutex) is a very effective medication that combats cravings for opiates (heroin, pain pills such as oxycodone/percocet) and stops withdrawal symptoms (sweating, shaking, abdominal pain, diarrhea). It works by fooling your body into thinking that it has opiates in its system. You can function normally without urges or getting sick . Buprenorphine and its formations dramatically reduce the chances of relapsing back to old habits.
    Suboxone, which is, Buprenorphine/Nalaxone has a blocker against other opioids. This means that if you have buprenorphine in your system you will not get high off of pain pills or heroin. This helps put an end to the relapse cycle.

    How often do I need to take the medication?

    The medication is usually dosed once or twice daily.  Unlike a methadone program where you have to have daily visits to the clinic for monitored administration of medication, Buprenorphine (suboxone, bunavail, zubsolv, subutex) can be safely prescribed in weekly, biweekly or monthly time periods, and be taken at home safely and comfortably. The frequency will be determined once you meet with your physician.

    What are the side-effects of Buprenorphine?

    This medication has a very safe profile. Some of the common side effects include headache, mild dizziness; numbness or tingling; drowsiness, or sleep problems (insomnia); constipation; or trouble concentrating.

    How long do I have to take this medication?

    The ultimate goal of buprenorphine is to give you freedom from addiction so you can live the life you want without being a slave to cravings. Medication is one part of treatment, and a very effective one. While you work on stabilizing, which takes 6 months to 1 year, we also encourage therapy and counseling to get you to a stable state. When you are ready we advise slowly tapering down the medication with supervision of your physician until you are either at a very low dose or off the medication completely.
