When it comes to beating opioid addiction, medications to manage withdrawal and cravings are a key part of a full recovery program that includes therapy and personalized support.

Suboxone helps people stop using opioids like heroin, fentanyl, and pain medications by stopping withdrawal symptoms and cravings.

How does Suboxone work?

Suboxone is a partial opioid agonist. That means it binds to the parts of you brain and body where opioids affect you and partially activates them. Opioid receptors are the proteins on cells in the brain and nervous system that are involved in things like pain control, emotional regulation, and other functions. Unlike methadone, oxy, fentanyl, and other common opioids which are full agonists, Suboxone doesn’t completely activate the opioid receptors. Because of this, Suboxone helps reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings without making someone feel “high.”

What are the side effects of Suboxone

When someone first begins taking Suboxone, they could experience any of the following side effects:

  • Sleep problems
  • Anxiety and other mood changes
  • Nausea, upset stomach, or vomiting
  • Body aches, headaches, or flu-like symptoms
  • Dizziness
  • Constipation
  • Sweating/perspiration

These side effects typically go away after a few days of taking Suboxone.

Is Suboxone addictive? Am I swapping one substance for another?

Suboxone is less powerful and lasts longer than other opioids. Instead of making someone “high,” it helps restore the brain’s normal chemistry and functioning. People who take Suboxone will become used to the medication and may have withdrawal symptoms if they stop taking it suddenly. But this doesn’t mean someone has become addicted to Suboxone, or will have to take it forever. While Suboxone is safe for long term use and some people may require it, the course of treatment generally involves gradually reducing the level of dosage over time, until it is no longer necessary. Your medical provider will work with you to find the right fit for your situation.

Without the support your team offers, I would not have gotten clean. I’ve been to a lot of different facilities but you guys have showed me how to want it– I have a busy life. I can’t take 30 days off to get help. The flexibility, the rewards and how it influences the brain to keep doing healthy behaviors, and the support of the advocate team is nothing like any other facility has offered. You stand by us when we can’t stand ourselves and for that I am grateful.
