Helpful tips for internet research
The internet can be misleading depending on paid advertisements or “clickbait.” It is imperative to know which search terms to use to find quality addiction treatment.
- KEYWORDS: Using the right keywords is essential.Combining topics with location is a great way to start. For example, “Suboxone clinics near Ocean City, Maryland” could be useful when looking for Suboxone treatment. This will produce more specifically tailored options.
- READ REVIEWS: Reviews from actual people who have attended treatment centers can give perspective on someone’s experience with that center. Keep an open mind when reading reviews and note if the business responded to the reviews with suggestions or solutions. This can be an indicator of a well-rounded business that cares about its patients.
- SAMHSA LOCATOR TOOL:SAMHSA’s online tool ensures that only certified and authorized addiction treatment centers are listed on their resource database. This is a dependable source to use when looking for a drug rehab center.
What is Suboxone?
There are several safe, evidence-based, options of Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) to treat SUD and addiction. Addiction treatment centers may offer methadone, vivitrol, sublocade and Suboxone. Suboxone is an FDA-approved medicine that combines buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is a weak opioid that reduces symptoms associated with SUD, such as cravings, and naloxone blocks the effects of the opioid. At BrightView, we combine medication with counseling services and other support strategies to help patients maintain recovery.
