Addiction is a chronic condition, and because of that, we recommend long-term care with buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) for patients with opioid use disorder. Just like patients with diabetes or high blood pressure take daily medications, so too should patients with opioid addiction.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) with buprenorphine or methadone is critical to prevent overdose and death. Research shows that with MAT, 75% of patients will still be in recovery one year later. Here at Bicycle Health, we offer long-term buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) treatment to help patients stop or cut down on their opioid use.
