At MedX Medical Clinic, we can help individuals who have suffered from drug addiction, specifically Opioid dependence—dependence to prescription painkillers and heroin—which is something that impacts thousands of people in the United States. The dependence on opioids is a difficult health issue and not something that gets easier as your brain adapts to its usage.
Opioids can be prescription painkillers. Some examples include oxycodone, hydrocodone, and fentanyl. The street drug heroin is also an opioid.
We have treatment options that will help relieve your body of withdrawal symptoms. We understand the difficulty that can come with drug dependence and how it can affect your entire family and loved ones. Our primary way to accomplish this is through Suboxone Therapy.
SUBOXONE® (buprenorphine and naloxone) Sublingual Film (CIII) is a prescription medicine used to treat adults who are addicted to (dependent on) opioid drugs (either prescription or illegal) as part of a complete treatment program that also includes counseling and behavioral therapy.
It is a prescription medication that combines buprenorphine and naloxone and can help with heroin or opioid addiction. Our highly experienced doctors will help you or loved ones through a delicate situation with a treatment plan:
- Suboxone may be suggested for dependence on short-acting opioids, like prescription painkillers or heroin.
- You begin your treatment under the watchful eye of our doctors while in a moderate state of withdrawal.
- Then you will go through a maintenance program when you are no longer having withdrawal symptoms and having minimal side effects.
Note: Suboxone can cause serious side effects, so we will evaluate your health before administering.
