Medication Assisted Treatment with the use of Suboxone®
Suboxone® (buprenorphine) is an FDA approved opioid partial agonist. An agonist is a chemical that binds to a receptor of a cell and triggers a response by that cell. Agonists often mimic the action of a naturally occurring substance. At low doses, buprenorphine produces sufficient agonist effects to enable opiate-addicted individuals to discontinue the use of opiates without experiencing withdrawal symptoms. The medication assisted treatment will be provided in an outpatient setting. Levels of program intensity are available for those who are using medication assistance for the first time,
or those who need recovery maintenance.
Program Components Include:
• Chemical dependency and a mental health assessment
• Assessment and screening for medication readiness
• Nutritional assessment and continued care
