What Is Suboxone?
Suboxone is a medication used to treat opioid use disorder (OUD). It consists of buprenorphine and naloxone, a combination that helps maintain your comfort during withdrawal while minimizing the risk of misuse. Suboxone can also help keep opioid cravings at bay, making it easier to maintain your recovery.
Suboxone is delivered as sublingual tablets or films that are dissolved under the tongue. As part of a medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program, Suboxone helps alleviate discomfort so you can focus on the other components of your treatment plan, such as individual or group therapy.
Why Do People Take Suboxone?
Many people consult their provider about Suboxone treatment to help them overcome opioid use disorder. Suboxone care helps provide relief from withdrawal symptoms and opioid cravings. This makes it easier for them to focus on their recovery goals and abstain from opioid misuse. If you need support to overcome OUD, speak with your provider about when to take Suboxone as part of your treatment plan.
