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.

After 10 years of chronic relapsing, I finally put down drugs and alcohol for good. That was July 14th, 1998. But I could not do it alone. A medically-supervised program that used a recovery-oriented method that included 12 step facilitation counseling and also mandated participation in AA or NA was the only thing that finally worked for me.
INTEGRATED CARE OF GREATER HICKORY has an inhouse pharmacy for low cost and confidential Suboxone meds for heroin addiction and pain pill addiction. Many participants qualifying now for free care for heroin and pain pill addiction.
Alcoholism, Heroin Addiction, Pain Pill Addiction, Sedatives, Anxiety, Depression, and other behavioral problems that require counseling and possibly medication therapy such as antidepressants or Suboxone. Not a mere Drug and Alcohol Rehab (Rehabilitation) thing. It's a Recovery Program. A medically supervised treatment program guided by providers in recovery themselves and like minded clinicians leading to long term recovery.
Quality care is whole person care.    Andrew Taylor Still, the founder of osteopathic medicine, believed strongly in the holistic approach to the practice of healthcare. He believed that all aspects of the human being – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, psychological, environmental, etc., must be taken into consideration when providing treatment and care to a person in need.    Integrated Care of Greater Hickory uses these guiding principles as we deliver whole person care. Medical, behavioral, laboratory, and low cost/confidential pharmacy services inhouse, and also include social interventions, such as housing, transportation, education assistance, employment assistance, authentic recovery community engagement, and much more in treatment planning and the delivery of care.

What is naloxone?  Naloxone is a medication designed to rapidly reverse opioid overdose. It is an opioid antagonist—meaning that it binds to opioid receptors and can reverse and block the effects of other opioids. It can very quickly restore normal respiration to a person whose breathing has slowed or stopped as a result of overdosing with heroin or prescription opioid pain medications.  How is naloxone given?  There are three FDA-approved formulations of naloxone:  Injectable (professional training required)  Generic brands of injectable naloxone vials are offered by a variety of companies that are listed in the FDA Orange Book under "naloxone" (look for "injectable").  Note: There has been widespread use of improvised emergency kits that combine an injectable formulation of naloxone with an atomizer that can deliver naloxone intranasally. Use of this product requires the user to be trained on proper assembly and administration. These improvised intranasal devices may not deliver naloxone levels equivalent to FDA-approved products. In fact, the manufacturer of an internasal atomizer device issued a voluntary recall on 10/27/16 noting that some of the devices “may not deliver a fully atomized plume of medication, making the drug potentially less effective.” An approved, prefilled nasal spray is now available (see below).  Autoinjectable  EVZIO® is a prefilled auto-injection device that makes it easy for families or emergency personnel to inject naloxone quickly into the outer thigh. Once activated, the device provides verbal instruction to the user describing how to deliver the medication, similar to automated defibrillators.  Prepackaged Nasal Spray  NARCAN® Nasal Spray is a prefilled, needle-free device that requires no assembly and is sprayed into one nostril while patients lay on their back.  Note: Both NARCAN® Nasal Spray and EVZIO® are packaged in a carton containing two doses to allow for repeat dosing if needed. They are relatively easy to use and suitable for home use in emergency situations.  Who can give naloxone to someone who has overdosed?  The liquid for injection is commonly used by paramedics, emergency room doctors, and other specially trained first responders. To facilitate ease of use, NARCAN® Nasal Spray is now available, which allows for naloxone to be sprayed into the nose. While improvised atomizers have been used in the past to convert syringes for use as nasal spray, these may not deliver the appropriate dose. Depending on the state you live in, friends, family members, and others in the community may give the auto-injector and nasal spray formulation of naloxone to someone who has overdosed. Some states require a physician to prescribe naloxone; in other states, pharmacies may distribute naloxone in an outpatient setting without bringing in a prescription from a physician. To learn about the laws regarding naloxone in your state, see the Prescription Drug Abuse Policy System website.  What dose can be provided?  The dose varies depending on the formulation, and sometimes more than one dose is needed to help the person start breathing again. Anyone who may have to use naloxone should carefully read the package insert that comes with the product. You can find copies of the package insert for EVZIO® and NARCAN® Nasal Spray on the FDA website.  What precautions are needed when giving naloxone?  People who are given naloxone should be observed constantly until emergency care arrives and for at least 2 hours by medical personnel after the last dose of naloxone to make sure breathing does not slow or stop.  What are the side effects of naloxone?  Naloxone is an extremely safe medication that only has a noticeable effect in people with opioids in their systems. Naloxone can (but does not always) cause withdrawal symptoms which may be uncomfortable, but are not life-threatening; on the other hand, opioid overdose is extremely life-threatening. Withdrawal symptoms may include headache, changes in blood pressure, rapid heart rate, sweating, nausea, vomiting, and tremors.  We provide free Narcan to our participants and train each person how to use this product to save lives. We ourselves carry this medication, so we are ready to save a life in the community. The NC Good Samaritan Law protects those who administer this medication to help save a life.
