Restore Health KY - IOP / MAT & Suboxone Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment explained

Suboxone is one of the medications used for medication-assisted treatment. Being a partial agonist, suboxone binds to the receptors in the brain cells but does not fully activate them. This medication blocks other opiates from attaching to the opioid receptors.

Suboxone works to block the effects of opioids, suppressing cravings, and restoring the proper functioning of the body without the negative effects of the abused drug. This medication is only a short-term intervention, whose aim is to help a patient get through the initial hump of withdrawal symptoms and cravings. Once a patient has stabilized, suboxone is gradually tapered and eventually discontinued.
