Suboxone Therapy in South Florida | Southcoast Psychiatric Services

Suboxone is a prescription medication that is federally approved for medication-assisted treatment for addiction. Specifically, it is a proven, effective way to treat opioid addiction. Here at South Coast Psychiatric Services, we offer Suboxone therapy on an outpatient basis for individuals struggling with opioid dependence.

What is Suboxone?

Suboxone is a medication approved to treat people who have become dependent on opioid painkillers, such as:

  • Oxycodone
  • Hydrocodone
  • Codeine
  • Meperidine
  • Propoxyphene
  • Fentanyl
  • Morphine

How Does Suboxone Work?

Suboxone, a prescription medication, is made up of two parts; buprenorphine and naloxone. These medications work together to do two things; reduce cravings and withdrawal symptoms and make the medication non-addictive. This means that the medication doesn’t give users euphoric effects. And, that there’s a lower risk for abuse, relapse, and overdose. Since it’s administered by our licensed professionals, we can manage your dosage for you.

Take Advantage of Suboxone Therapy for Yourself

If you are dependent on or living with an addiction to painkillers, you are not alone. Approximately 4.7 million Americans are currently overusing prescription pain relievers nonmedically, and 2.4 million have used heroin.

So, if you’re looking for a way to stop using painkillers and address your dependence on these medications, Suboxone therapy may be the treatment best for you. Suboxone is a prescription medication that’s effective in relieving and reducing symptoms of withdrawal. This gives people a safe and effective way to take on treatment.
