Future Now Medical Suboxone Detox Program
Suboxone is a drug that is used to help facilitate withdrawal from opiates, but it is one that can be addicting itself. Future Now has a Suboxone detox program for those that have become dependent on this type of medication.
Suboxone is a semi-synthetic opioid that consists of Buprenorphine and Naloxone combined. Buprenorphine has much of the same pain-relieving effects on the body as opiates like heroin, but it does not produce the high. Naloxone, an opioid antagonist, is added to the medication to keep the person from abusing the medication. With the Naloxone in the medication, anyone that tries to abuse and inject Suboxone will immediately experience full opiate withdrawal symptoms, which can be painful and uncomfortable.
Suboxone has been shown to be effective in weaning individuals gradually off of heroin and other opiates. It reduces the discomfort of detox, and helps the individual take control over their life again. However, Suboxone is still a drug, and at First Step, we help our patients detox from Suboxone also.
Suboxone detox is an important step in recovery. We at First Step make use of Suboxone during detoxification from heroin and other opiates because it provides effective relief from withdrawal symptoms, but we don’t stop there. We also help the patient wean off Suboxone and achieve a completely substance-free life.
Complete recovery means the individual must be able to live on their own, not relying on any drugs or harmful substances. Our program helps individuals develop the tools they need to remain sober long after recovery, allowing them to live a life of wellness.
How to Detox from Suboxone
Detox can be a stressful time in a person’s recovery. For many people, this is the most challenging part of healing. It is important that the patient learn how to detox from Suboxone as well as from other opiates in order to continue to improve and achieve sustained sobriety. Our program helps individuals gradually step down from Suboxone use, until they no longer need this medication and can remain sober on their own.
During detox, we use natural methods for pain relief and stress reduction. Our patients take part in yoga sessions, acupuncture, and massage. We provide all of our clients with nutritious foods prepared by a gourmet chef that is experienced in using the health benefits of food to replenish bodies that have been depleted of necessary elements because of addiction. Patients can participate in our living labyrinth and other meditation methods to decrease anxiety and improve the person’s overall mental health. At First Step, we focus on the entire individual, implementing different techniques in order to help the person heal all aspects of their life.
