Whether you are dependent on prescription painkillers or struggling to walk away from heroin, addiction to opiates is extremely common. At White Sands Treatment Center, we strive to stay updated on the latest and most powerful ways to help our patients recover, and we have had great success with using opiate antagonists. As a result, our medical team will offer you the chance to undergo Suboxone treatment. It is more effective than methadone, and the side effects are much less significant.
Suboxone combines naloxone with buprenorphine in order to block the opiate receptors in the brain. This action helps to treat addiction and reduce withdrawal symptoms, aiding the detox process and making overall recovery more likely. If your treatment program includes Suboxone, the drug will be administered during detoxification and will then be slowly decreased in order to keep you as comfortable as possible.
However, we caution that long-term treatment still achieves the best results when it comes to preventing future relapses. We advise a comprehensive treatment program that follows detox with cognitive behavioral therapy, helping you to discover why you turned to substance abuse and teaching you the skills required to abstain in the future.
You deserve to be free from the devastating cycles of drug and alcohol addiction. Call (877) 855-3470 to talk to our team of alcohol and drug treatment specialists about why White Sands is the perfect place to recover.
