What are the benefits of taking Suboxone to stop opioid use?

Table of Contents

Buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) is a daily, long-term medication used to treat opioid use disorder that is well-known to be safe and effective. Buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) relieves withdrawal symptoms, cravings, and dramatically reduces overdose risk, and notably, 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. Conversely, studies demonstrate that within one month of stopping buprenorphine (MAT) treatment, more than 50% of patients relapse to illicit opioid use. Benefits of buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) include helping patients to feel normal and healthy, and when taken as prescribed by a medical provider, it treats addiction and does not cause the negative impacts of uncontrolled substance use on one’s life, goals, and daily functioning.
