Suboxone Replacement Therapy

Prairie Treatment Clinic

Suboxone is also used to manage opioid dependence. Suboxone is a tablet containing an opiate (called Buprenorphine), and an agent that counteracts opiates (called Naloxone), to prevent misuse.

Both Methadone and Suboxone have been effective in treating opioid dependence because they generally do not make you feel high. Methadone and Suboxone are taken once per day. Once you are on a stable dose you should feel quite normal, with no drowsiness or withdrawal symptoms. This is because Methadone and Suboxone stay in your body longer than other opioids. Both are safe to use long-term.

Methadone and Suboxone Replacement Therapy require ongoing support and monitoring, including prescription management, medical follow-up, urine testing, counseling and treatment planning. The staff at Prairie Treatment Clinic are here to help.
