Suboxone Treatment

What is it?

Suboxone and variants such as Subutex, Zubsolv, and Bunavail are medications approved for the treatment of Opioid Dependance.

How does it work?

The medications mentioned above contain Buprenorphine.  Buprenorphine takes away the craving of wanting opioids known by names such as OxyContin, Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Opana, Heroin, Methadone, Roxicodone, Norco, Fentanyl, Demerol, Tramadol, and Percocet.

Is it safe?

Buprenorphine or a combination of Buprenorphine and Naloxne aka Suboxone are much safer than other prescription opioids or street drugs.  There is always a risk associated with any medication.  Click below for more information.
