Suboxone for Treatment of Opioid Addiction

Suboxone for Treatment


Pain medication addiction affects roughly 10% of the general population. It is a devastating disease that cuts across all classes, both rich and poor. Prescription opioid abuse kills about 14,000 people annually, and affects millions of individuals and their families. Suboxone Treatment can be a useful alternative for doctors to assist their patients.

The Drug Addiction Act of 2000 (DATA) passed by Congress allows qualified physicians to treat opioid addiction in an office-based setting with the use of approved scheduled medications. Suboxone is one of those medications. It's use allows a qualified physician to medically supervise the withdrawal from opioid pain medications in the safety and privacy of an office setting. The use of Suboxone requires certification from the federal government, so be sure you visit a qualified medical office such as that of Doctor Sanford Silverman, M.D., in Pompano Beach, Florida.

Suboxone treatment is not a “cure” for opioid addiction. Counseling and perhaps other medications are often required to treat this disease. Acupuncture can be very helpful for the treatment of addiction.
