Suboxone Treatment in Florida

  suboxone treatment opiod addiction in South Florida
Generic Name: buprenorphine and naloxone (byoo PREH nor feen and NAH lox own)

Suboxone is a drug treatment for detoxification from drug addiction and a drug used as a maintenance program for opioid dependence (ex: OxyContin and heroin), addiction, addiction treatment and addiction recovery.

Unlike methadone, Suboxone is currently recognized for use in detox facilities for an opiate detox. Methadone is no longer the preferred alternative for opiate treatment, as it is a schedule II narcotic medication and has a significant potential to be habit forming. Suboxone is the first narcotic drug available for the treatment of opiate dependence and opiate addiction. Suboxone is prescribed by a physician. It is available under the Drug Abuse Treatment Act of 2000. *see below

There exists a significant difference between a Suboxone Maintenance program and an Addiction Treatment Program, inclusive of those individuals incorporating Suboxone maintenance with their addiction treatment and recovery program. The Cove Center For Recovery encourages each addict to begin correcting a problem by examining why that problem exists in the first place. Drug addiction is always the result of self-medicating, in an attempt to overcome or cope with ongoing life challenges. Whether an individual struggling with opioid dependence is you or someone you care about, understanding this disease—what causes it, what contributes to it, and why it persists—is a key to being part of the solution. Simply using Suboxone as maintenance does not address underlying issues.

Therefore, Suboxone maintenance, without entering an addiction treatment center, is not recommended by The Cove Center For Recovery. While The Cove Center For Recovery advocates the use of Suboxone during the detox phase of addiction treatment, a continued maintenance treatment (without therapeutic intervention), is a topic challenged openly in the profession of medical doctors, psychotherapists, and addiction treatment centers. The Cove chooses to avoid the debate. We take the position that every person has the right to a therapeutic treatment program.

Simply put, The Cove provides "addiction treatment” and therapy, in our addiction treatment center, for those “recovering” individuals, who choose Suboxone maintenance. The Cove recognizes the many options available for the recovering individual and welcomes individuals who are willing to choose recovery and therapeutic modalities, leaving their drug of choice in the past.

What are Opiods?
Opioids are commonly prescribed because of their effective analgesic, or pain-relieving, properties. Medications that fall within this class-referred to as prescription narcotics-include morphine (e.g., Kadian, Avinza), codeine, oxycodone (e.g., OxyContin, Percodan, Percocet), and related drugs. Morphine, for example, is often used before and after surgical procedures to alleviate severe pain. Codeine, on the other hand, is often prescribed for mild pain. In addition to their pain-relieving properties, some of these drugs-codeine and diphenoxylate (Lomotil) for example-can be used to relieve coughs and diarrhea.

How Does Suboxone Work with Percocet, OxyContin, Heroin and Other Opiates?

Suboxone contains a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is an opioid medication. Buprenorphine is similar to other opioids such as morphine, codeine, and heroin however, it produces less euphoric ("high") effects and therefore may be easier to stop taking.

Naloxone blocks the effects of opioids such as morphine, codeine, Percocet, OxyContin, and heroin. If Suboxone is injected, naloxone will block the effects of buprenorphine and lead to withdraw symptoms in a person with an opioid addiction. When administered under the tongue as directed, naloxone will not affect the actions of buprenorphine. Suboxone is used to treat opiate addiction.

How Do Opiods Affect the Brain and Body?
Opioids act on the brain and body by attaching to specific proteins called opioid receptors, which are found in the brain, spinal cord, and gastrointestinal tract. When these drugs attach to certain opioid receptors, they can block the perception of pain. Opioids can produce drowsiness, nausea, constipation, and, depending upon the amount of drug taken, depress respiration. Opioid drugs also can induce euphoria by affecting the brain regions that mediate what we perceive as pleasure. This feeling is often intensified for those who abuse opioids when administered by routes other than those recommended. For example, Percocets are ingested orally or snorted. OxyContin is snorted or injected to enhance its euphoric effects, while at the same time increasing the risk for serious medical consequences, such as opioid overdose. Heroin is snorted, smoked, or injected (used intravenously).

Who Chooses Suboxone Detox and Drug Treatment?
Drug addiction is a world-wide problem. Many people say it is a chronic disease, a disease of epidemic proportion. Drugs and alcohol can lead to drug addiction and alcohol addiction (alcoholism), which causes chaos in the lives of addicted people and their families, in addition to continued consequences, such as broken relationships, medical deterioration, incarceration, and death.

Recently, opioid (drug) dependence, most notably OxyContin and heroin drugs known as opiates, has increased and reached our nation’s everyday families and communities. Opiate addiction spans most age groups including adolescents, young adults, adults, and senior adults. Once an individual struggling with drug addiction, has made the decision to seek addiction treatment, the journey to recovery begins. The decision to seek addiction treatment may be self-motivated or encouraged or even demanded by loved ones. Legal consequences for drug addiction may also be a motivating factor. Regardless of the motivation, it is important to focus on the decision to enter an addiction treatment program.

The individual who might choose Suboxone in the detox phase and addiction treatment or recovery phase, is one who has become addicted to drugs in the opioid category (ex: OxyContin and heroin) and has decided to seek addiction treatment. Suboxone can be used in detox, followed by a maintenance program of Suboxone intake. This form of addiction treatment is most successful when Suboxone is combined with the therapeutic benefits of a structured therapeutic addiction treatment facility and addiction treatment program.

*In October 2002, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved buprenorphine monotherapy product, Subutex®, and a buprenorphine/naloxone combination product, Suboxone®, for use in opioid addiction treatment. The combination product is designed to decrease the potential for abuse by injection. Subutex® and Suboxone® are currently the only Schedule III, IV, or V medications to have received FDA approval for this indication. Note that aside from Subutex® and Suboxone®, other forms of buprenorphine (e.g., Buprenex®) are not approved for treatment of opioid addiction. Information contained above is courtesy of

Psychotherapy: Daily involvement in your addiction treatment program during your SUBOXONE treatment is required for the optimal benefit of Suboxone treatment. Therapy aka psychotherapy and counseling, helps patients develop coping skills that can help them to avoid relapse and has been shown to significantly improve the likelihood of long-term treatment success.

Other therapeutic modalities of treatment are helpful in resolving ongoing, interpersonal struggles. Trauma Therapy, Grief Therapy, Anger Management, Stress Management, Art Therapy, Music Therapy, and Meditation, are important therapeutic techniques each recovering individual may use to gain insight and develop daily skills in the quest to live a healthy, sober life.

Cycle of Addiction - Education: The Cove Center For Recovery provides education on the cycle of addiction, in an effort to help each individual identify behaviors in the cycle and side-step relapse before it occurs. When an individual recognizes behaviors such as non-compliance with medication, excessive stress, denial or reduced effort in recovery groups such as NA, then the individual can STOP the relapse before it begins.

Physical Exercise: Physical exercise is your friend ! The Cove Center For Recovery provides a “workout” program for each individual. The treadmill, stair master, or weights, are used in the gym, to encourage and promote a “healthier”, “new you” !

Sober Fun: The Cove Center For Recovery holds firm to their belief that every individual benefits from SOBER FUN. Time previously spent using drugs, must be replaced with activities. “Idle minds and idle hands create a dangerous situation for the recovering addict.” The Cove provides activities to enhance and encourage sobriety. These activities include: bowling, basketball, movies, sight-seeing, team-building activities, and seasonal out-door activities such as snorkeling, beach volleyball, fishing, and other recreational activities.

Continued Support
In addition to The Cove Center For Recovery and continued support through NA and AA, we suggest that each recovering individual seek psychotherapy, medical care, and continued support as needed.
