Suboxone Detoxification

Posted Oct 23 2008 6:33pm
It is not only drug addict who suffers from opiate addiction. There are many normal folks who suffer from pain and may have taken prescription opioid painkillers over long period to kill the pain. Some have claimed that abuse of prescription opioid painkillers has overtaken cocaine and marijuana use. If you or any of your loved ones falls into these categories, and you want to do something about it, you may want to consider Suboxone Detoxification to treat opiate addiction.

Drug dependency

What is Suboxone

Suboxone have 2 components, buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is a partial opiate agonist. Buprenorphine can either activate or block opoid receptors. It is used to reduce unpleasant withdrawal effects people have when they stop using opioid drugs such as heroin. Naloxone is used to counter the effects of overdosing on opioids and is an opioid receptor competitive antagonist. Its fast blocking of those receptors often produces rapid onset of withdrawal symptoms. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved Suboxone for the purpose of opiate detoxification.

Suboxone Detoxification

There are Suboxone Detox Centers which specialises in Suboxone detoxification. They have treatment programs tailored to a patient’s specific circumstances and personal needs. Many sufferers have to be confined for long periods in drug rehabilitation centers which disrupt their normal live. The Meditox detoxification center says they can offer drug rehab at home. If this is true, it will help those who can't or don't want to confine themselves for long period in drug rehabilitation centers and will enable them to carry on with their normal daily life.
