Opioid use disorder or opioid addiction is treated using a combination of medication-assisted treatment and other behavioral or psychosocial methods. Opioids are often prescribed for pain and can be highly addictive. The use of opioids becomes more trying when individuals attempt to discontinue their use as they are faced with overwhelming withdrawal symptoms. At BrightView, we understand the importance of Suboxone as an effective drug addiction treatment to reduce patient’s dependence on opioids and manage withdrawal symptoms. Each of our 22 Suboxone clinics in Ohio is staffed with experienced professionals to guide you or a loved one to recover safely and effectively. Learn more about where to find a Suboxone clinic near you by calling 1-833-510-HELP.

What Is Suboxone?

Suboxone is a buprenorphine-based medication that is used as medication-assisted treatment for opioid use disorder. Suboxone acts by binding to the receptors, acting on the same areas of the brain as opioids, thereby preventing the euphoric feeling associated with opioid use. Suboxone treatment can help to prevent relapse, withdrawal, and cravings associated with the discontinuation of opioids.

Substance Abuse Treatment With MAT

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is proven to be an effective addiction treatment for drug, alcohol, and opioid addiction. These medications function with the dopamine receptors in an individual’s brain to ease the symptoms during the withdrawal process and assist in recovery. These symptoms can be divided into early and later withdrawal symptoms.

Early Symptoms

Early symptoms of withdrawal may include:

  • Anxiety
  • Excessive sweating
  • Muscle aches
  • Restlessness
  • Runny nose
  • Inability to sleep

These symptoms begin within the first 24 after the opioids are discontinued in patients.

Later Symptoms

Later symptoms may include:

  • Abdominal cramping
  • Diarrhea
  • Dilated pupils
  • Blurry vision
  • Goosebumps on the skin
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Rapid heartbeat
  • High blood pressure

There is a progression from the initially milder or early symptoms that can occur within days of discontinuing opioids in patients with opioid addiction. Brightview provides patients the comprehensive support that they need to overcome addiction using a combination of medical treatment and psychological therapy in an outpatient or intensive outpatient treatment program. Suboxone treatment is just one of the many medication-assisted treatment options available to substance users to treat addiction and get them on the road to long-term sobriety.
