Back to Suboxone FAQs

What happens if a provider decides I'm not a good fit for the program, or that I don't need the medications?

If you struggle with dependence or addiction to opioids or opiates (like oxycodone/Percocet, hydrocodone/Vicodin, hydromorphone/Dilaudid, methadone, heroin, or fentanyl), chances are buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) will be a good medication choice to prevent cravings, withdrawals, and overdose.

There are no absolutes or rigid criteria or algorithms that dictate how to best treat YOUR struggles with opioid addiction. Most patients dependent or addicted to opioids could benefit from the life-saving medication buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone).

Importantly, at your first appointment, your Bicycle Health provider will complete a comprehensive medical assessment. Following that, your provider will work with you to determine the best treatment plan, which usually includes buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone). Our providers are invested first and foremost in your recovery, so all efforts will be made to develop an adequate treatment plan or find someone who can.
