When someone is addicted to opioids, he or she is stuck in a cycle of abuse that seemingly has no end. It can be impossible to see the light at the end of the tunnel when constantly under the influence. So, it is no surprise that not even close to half of the opioid-addicted population does not get the help they need to stop using.

Without professional treatment for an opioid addiction, it is highly unlikely that a person will be able to get sober on his or her own and maintain that sobriety for a lifetime. What often happens instead is that the person will continue to use until he or she suffers a fatal overdose or experiences a fatal accident while being under the influence. The disease of addiction is so powerful that even those who want to stop abusing opioids face a regular, daily struggle to do so. Ignoring the need for help can not just lead to an untimely death, but it can ruin one’s career, cause family tension that leads to divorce or separation, and leave a person with little to no money to survive. The only way out of an opioid addiction alive and ready to rebuild is by receiving professional care, such as that offered through our Suboxone treatment in Bowling Green, KY.

What is Suboxone?

Since 2003, Suboxone has been used to help treat opioid use disorder in addiction recovery centers throughout the country. Similar to methadone, Suboxone is able to help minimize the intensity of withdrawal symptoms that a person can experience when ending his or her opioid abuse. It can also help to decrease the amount of withdrawal symptoms that can develop, as well as help curb powerful cravings for continued use.

Suboxone is comprised of two main ingredients – buprenorphine and naloxone. When buprenorphine enters into the body, it immediately rushes to the opioid receptors in the brain and partially activates them. This sends a signal to the body that opioids are present, however, the user does not get high as he or she would through the use of other more potent opioids like heroin or OxyContin. As a result, a person is given the opportunity to slowly come out of the haze of opioid dependence without shocking his or her system. Working directly alongside buprenorphine is naloxone, which helps to prevent misuse and overdose. Naloxone is the primary ingredient in Narcan, which is the brand name for the medication used to revive individuals who have overdosed on opioids.
