What is Methadone?
Methadone is one of the more successful ways of treating opioid addiction. It relieves withdrawal symptoms, reduces the opiate cravings, and brings about a biochemical balance in the body that allows individuals to stop the illegal use of opioids.
Methadone is a legally controlled medication that when combined with substance abuse counseling and supportive services it allows an individual to return to a more stable and productive life.
Methadone is prescribed by a licensed physician under Texas' Department of State Health Services and DEA guidelines and restrictions for the treatment of opioid dependence.
What is Suboxone® (Buprenorphine)?
Suboxone® (Buprenorphine) therapy is one of the most promising substance abuse treatments for opiate addiction.
Buprenorphine is the active ingredient in Suboxone® and it itself is an opioid. But unlike opioid prescription painkillers and heroin, which are “full opioid agonists,” buprenorphine is a “partial opioid agonist.” That means the buprenorphine in Suboxone attaches to the same receptors in the brain that the other opioids attach to, but it does not provide the high associated with pain killers and heroin. Because buprenorphine binds tightly to the body’s opioid receptors, it can block the effects of other opioids. This is why Suboxone film can help patients manage and reduce withdrawal symptoms as well as the cravings for opioids.
Buprenorphine is prescribed by a licensed physician under DEA guidelines and restrictions for the treatment of opioid dependence.
