Suboxone

 

The doctors at Advocate recovery center are certified to prescribe Suboxone to help patients come off of opioid dependence. 

 

They received  training  from the American Association of Addiction Psychiatry regarding the use of buprenorphine in treatment of opioid addiction.  Topics covered were pharmacology, patient assessment, safety and effectiveness, dosing, urine testing and patient confidentiality. 

 

Suboxone is the first opioid medication approved for the treatment of opioid dependence in an office-based setting.  It also can be dispensed for take-home use similar to any other medication used for medical conditions.  The primary active ingredient in Suboxone is buprenorphine.  The medication can help patients reduce opioid use and stay in treatment by suppressing symptoms or withdrawal and decrease cravings for opioids.
