Our Bicycle Health team is comprised of addiction-medicine trained physicians, nurse practitioners (NPs), and physician assistants (PAs) who are committed to providing safe, confidential, and affordable Suboxone treatment for opioid use disorder. Here at Bicycle Health, we combine buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) treatment with behavioral health supports, like online support groups and health coaches.
Medication-assisted treatment for opioid addiction is the use of medications—buprenorphine, methadone, or naltrexone—to treat opioid use disorder, which reduces opioid cravings, withdrawal symptoms, and overdose risk.
Buprenorphine treatment is often combined with naloxone. Together, this combination is known as Suboxone, the most well-known FDA-approved medication for treatment of opioid use disorder.
Suboxone helps patients to feel normal and healthy. 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.
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 treatment, more than 50% of patients relapse to illicit opioid use.
