The first active ingredient in Suboxone is Buprenorphine. This is a partial opioid agonist medication that binds to the opioid receptors to alleviate symptoms of withdrawal and reduce cravings. Due to the buprenorphine ceiling effect, excessive consumption of buprenorphine typically does not result in the high that would be elicited with other opioids making this medication powerfully effective in breaking the pattern of addiction and reducing compulsive, drug-seeking behaviors.
The second active ingredient in Suboxone is Naloxone. This opioid antagonist works to minimize the risk of Suboxone abuse by producing a negative reaction when it is injected or otherwise tampered with. NOTE: Improper use of Suboxone could result in prescripated withdrawal symptoms, do not take Suboxone without seeking the treatment of a professional.
Various providers including licensed healthcare professionals prescribe Suboxone in the treatment of opioid addiction on a completely outpatient basis. Buprenorphine prescribers must have special training and licensing in the United States to offer this treatment and they are then only allows to take on a specific number of patients at a given time. These regulations sometimes make finding and choosing between the various local Suboxone clinics in KY frustrating or challenging for the patient — you must find a location that accepts your insurance, has availability to take on new patients, and that is within an acceptable distance from your home or office.

Is Suboxone a Good Treatment for My Opiate Addiction?
Suboxone is a clinically proven treatment for opioid dependence but, like other forms of addiction treatment, it’s not for everyone. Deciding whether Suboxone is a good treatment for your addiction to prescription painkillers or other opioids is a decision to be made between you and your healthcare team or medical professional. We always recommend consulting with a licensed professional prior to choosing any treatment plan.
Kentucky Suboxone clinics recommend this form of medication-assisted treatment for adults who are addicted to opioid drugs. You may be an ideal candidate for Suboxone treatment at CommonHealth Recovery if:
● You reside in the central Kentucky area and struggle with opioid addiction.
● You are physically addicted to opioids and seeking a treatment option to help you curb cravings, minimize withdrawal, and achieve recovery.
● You have not stopped using opioids due to fear or concerns of withdrawal.
● You are not currently taking benzodiazepines or drinking alcohol excessively. (You may still be a candidate for Suboxone treatment if you are using these substances but further treatment will be discussed to ensure your safety.)
● You can commit to a daily schedule of taking medication, on-time, without abusing or misusing your dose.
● You are committed to counseling and therapy that works in conjunction with the medication-assisted treatment prescribed for you.
