One medication used to treat substance use disorder is Suboxone. Suboxone is a brand name of a buprenorphine/naloxone medication. Other brand names include Sublocade, Brixadi, and Subutex. This FDA-approved prescription medication combines buprenorphine and naloxone to help patients safely manage withdrawal symptoms. Most BrightView centers are licensed Narcotics Treatment Programs, meaning medications can be prescribed and administered on-site. We include this medication in Pikeville and other locations as part of our full slate of opioid use disorder (OUD) recovery options. Give us a call today at 833-510-4357 for more information on each of these options.


Suboxone Basics

Suboxone is a brand-name medication that contains precise amounts of two ingredients: Buprenorphine and Naloxone.

  • WHAT IS BUPRENORPHINE? Buprenorphine is a weak opioid that acts as a substitute to manage withdrawal from unregulated substances. Its effects are not strong enough to trigger a classic opioid high but will keep enough in the brain’s opioid receptors to provide stability and reduce withdrawal symptoms.
  • WHAT IS NALOXONE? Naloxone is an opioid blocker that covers the brain’s opioid receptors. It acts as a cut-off switch of sorts to prevent overdose and limit the effects of opioids.

Suboxone is monitored and controlled at the federal level because it is an opioid. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has set forth guidelines for using it safely, and SAMHSA regulates this use. Only a SAMHSA-approved medical professional can administer Suboxone.


Finding a Rehab Clinic

Addiction treatment clinics are treatment facilities that may use Suboxone as a primary option for Medication for Addiction Treatment, or MAT. If you are looking for a clinic near you, here’s how you can find one.

  • MAT AT BRIGHTVIEW: Receive treatment at BrightView. We offer various methods of MAT, including Methadone, Suboxone, Sublocade, and Vivitrol. Our team will help guide you down the path to recovery that works best for you based on your unique situation and medical history.
