At the Renew Clinic, we offer Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) for the treatment of opioid dependence with Buprenorphine-based medications such as Suboxone®.
Medication Assisted Treatment
Medication-assisted treatment for opioid dependence can include the use of buprenorphine (Suboxone) to complement the education, counseling, and other support measures that focus on the behavioral aspects of opioid addiction. This medication can allow one to regain a normal state of mind – free of withdrawal, cravings, and the drug-induced highs and lows of addiction. Medication-assisted treatment for opioid addiction and dependence is much like using medication to treat other chronic illnesses such as heart disease, asthma, or diabetes. Taking medication for opioid addiction is not the same as substituting one addictive drug for another.
The medication Suboxone® (a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone) can provide much-needed relief from the physical symptoms of opioid withdrawal while eliminating cravings for continued opioid use. The buprenorphine in this medication interacts with the same receptors in the brain that are typically activated by the use of opioids. Buprenorphine, however, will not cause patients to experience the feelings of relation or euphoria that are associated with an opioid-induced high, allowing patients to focus on their responsibilities and treatment goals while remaining unimpaired.
