Why does ICGH provide low cost, and for certain programs - free, Suboxone to its patients with pain pill or heroin addiction??
Suboxone is a blocker. It prevents withdrawal symptoms from opioids, such as pain pills and heroin. It also prevents the person taking Suboxone from feeling the euphoria of opioids if they do slip and use. People are not addicted to Suboxone. There is no craving for Suboxone. After being stabilized on Suboxone, most patients slowly titrate down off the drug. It can be for many a way to begin treatment.
Alot of misinformation about Suboxone out there... this medicine plus counseling and transitioning into AA and NA saves lives and allows people to move into long term, drug free recovery.
72,000 people died last year from a prescription pill overdose. This medication helps saves lives when used appropriately.
The medication when used properly and in the evidence based counseling program is proven effective to saves lives and move people suffering from opioid use disorder into long term recovery. It has no effect whatsoever on the Mu receptor site and has a ceiling effect as well. The Mu receptor site causes the euphoria of heroin and pill addiction.
There are other receptor sites effected when taken improperly. This is one of the reasons a licensed facility applies the model appropriately. Detox is one of the available resources we use, but due to the short stay on detox, loss of tolerance, and lack of new coping skills, people are at the highest risk of overdose death at discharge. Our clinicians have decades of lived recovery as well we clinical skills. We titrate people completely off the medication and have created a foundation for long term recovery. In recovery, we help them reconnect with family and often their faith tradition. Feel free to message us and can offer 2 decades of scientific research that supports this evidence based treatment model. Call today for pain pill, heroin addiction, or drug rehab treatment. ICGH also cares for other substance use disorders, commonly known as drug addictions, and other behavioral problems, such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, etc. Telephone: 828-322-5915.
