We Do Recover

Subutex, containing the active ingredient buprenorphine, is a medication used in addiction treatment programs to help individuals overcome opioid addiction. Buprenorphine is an opioid partial agonist, activating the same brain receptors as other opioids but with a milder effect, thereby reducing cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Approved by the FDA in 2002, Subutex is widely used in the addiction recovery community, typically in combination with counselling and behavioral therapies for a comprehensive treatment approach. Unlike Suboxone, which contains buprenorphine and naloxone, Subutex comprises only buprenorphine, making it different in terms of potential for misuse. Subutex is administered sublingually and closely monitored by health professionals to adjust dosages for safe and effective treatment. It’s important to note that Subutex is not intended for pain management, and misuse can lead to addiction, overdose, or death. It should not be used during pregnancy due to risk of newborn withdrawal symptoms and is not approved for individuals under 18. Regular dental checkups and blood tests for liver function are recommended during treatment with Subutex. Patients are advised against abruptly stopping its use to avoid withdrawal symptoms and to follow proper disposal guidelines to prevent misuse.
