Opioid addiction can be almost impossible to stop on your own. At Symetria Recovery, we use medication to ease withdrawal symptoms and give you the best chance to end the addiction. Our Suboxone treatment program can be the key to long-lasting recovery.
Suboxone®, a brand-name drug containing buprenorphine and naloxone, is one of the most effective and commonly used buprenorphine medications for treating opioid use, dependency, and addiction. Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2002, it is at the forefront of medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid dependence.
Suboxone can be administered as a sublingual film — a small strip of medicated film applied inside the cheek or under the tongue, where it continues to release a steady dose until replaced. The medication binds to the same receptors activated by opioids, thereby blocking or minimizing their effects in the body. It’s designed to alleviate the burden of withdrawal symptoms for patients so that they’re freed up to focus more fully on recovery.
The Symetria Method
While other opioid withdrawal treatment facilities take a narrow approach to addiction recovery, we take a comprehensive approach to care. While the narrow approach may sound easier, it has been proven to rarely work as patients relapse and have to start over again.
Our evidence-based strategy, known as The Symetria Method, combines a variety of therapies and treatments in order to achieve the best possible outcome for each patient. Your success in taking control of your life is our focus and our shared goal with you. As part of that approach, we include physician-supervised Suboxone treatment to control and ultimately eliminate withdrawal and cravings.
Suboxone’s Effect on Withdrawal
The unique pharmacological properties of Suboxone enable it to reduce symptoms encountered during opioid withdrawal treatment. When initiated in a state of mild to moderate withdrawal, Suboxone will relieve your symptoms. Many patients state that they feel “normal” after initiating the medication. The long-lasting nature of Suboxone allows most patients to take it just once a day freeing you up to live your life.
Suboxone Side Effects
Any time you take a new drug, you may potentially be subject to side effects. While every patient is different, typical Suboxone side effects can include:
- Nausea and vomiting
- Muscle aches
Under the supervision of skilled clinicians at Symetria Recovery, you won’t have to deal with them alone. Because we’re familiar with buprenorphine, our physicians and professionals pay close attention to your overall health and are able to advise on the best strategies for dealing with side effects.
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT) at Symetria Recovery
Repeatedly shown to provide the best method for treating opioid dependency, MAT significantly outperforms other forms of opioid treatment, such as those that rely on counseling alone. When used as part of a comprehensive program such as The Symetria Method, it yields proven success rates higher than the industry average.
At our recovery treatment centers, medication is dispensed on Day One, immediately improving withdrawal reactions. This frees up patients to focus on treatment in a safe, confidential environment. If you’re looking for a buprenorphine treatment program, Symetria Recovery is the right place.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) serves two critical purposes in treating patients for opioid addiction:
- It makes withdrawal and detoxification much more comfortable, allowing for a smoother recovery.
- It helps keep cravings under control, which reduces the risk of relapsing after detoxification and treatment.
The MAT program at Symetria Recovery eases the pain of withdrawal and gives you the opportunity for genuine, long-lasting recovery.
