Opioid dependence treatment enables affected individuals to function normally without opioids. Medical treatment with buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) is a highly effective first-line treatment that reduces opioid withdrawal, cravings, and overdose risk by partially activating the same receptors as opioids. It occupies the brain’s opioids receptors without producing the ill effects of opioids.
Suboxone is safer and often more accessible than alternative treatment options. Thus, it is the treatment of choice at Bicycle Health and worldwide. An online relationship with a Bicycle Health medical provider can provide you with buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone).
Buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) is a highly effective treatment option for opioid dependence. Treatment retention rates are as high as 75%. Suboxone treatment improves the likelihood that individuals will abstain from opioids compared to those not on medication. Studies demonstrate that within one month of stopping buprenorphine treatment, more than 50% of patients relapse to illicit opioid use. Thus, we encourage the long-term use of Suboxone therapy for patients with opioid use disorder.
One of the advantages of Suboxone is that, unlike other treatment options, it has a safer side effect profile and is difficult to abuse. It can therefore be prescribed safely in outpatient clinics.
Buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) helps patients feel normal and function without opioids. When taken as prescribed by a medical provider, it treats opioid dependence and helps patients to improve their quality of life.
