How do I know if Suboxone is right for me?

Suboxone is an effective and safe medication that is used to help individuals who are battling opioid addictions. Including the use of Suboxone in your treatment plan can help you put your use behind you without having to go through painful withdrawal symptoms. To know if Suboxone is the appropriate medication for you, speak with a certified provider who can evaluate your needs and decide which type of care is most appropriate for you.

Can I become addicted to Suboxone?

Yes. Suboxone is a medication that can cause a tolerance to occur if abused. However, when used as prescribed and within a medication assisted treatment program, the use of Suboxone is both safe and effective. Comprised of buprenorphine and naloxone, Suboxone is able to trigger the same receptors in the brain that opioids do, however, a euphoric high is not produced. As a result, individuals are able to continue on in their daily lives without being held back by withdrawal symptoms or drug cravings. When taken as part of a medication assisted treatment program, the risk of addiction is low given the monitoring by professionals who work to ensure that addiction does not develop.

Will Suboxone show up on a drug screening?

Suboxone will not trigger a positive result on a standard drug test. The primary ingredient in Suboxone (buprenorphine) will only be detected on a test that is designed to detect this specific medication.

It is important to know that if you are participating in a medication assisted treatment program, are taking Suboxone with a legal prescription, and are receiving care from a certified physician, your use is not illegal.

How long will I need to be on Suboxone?

Determining how long you will remain on Suboxone will be a decision that both you and your doctor make together. Extensive research has proven that Suboxone is safe and effective when used both short- and long-term. While some individuals take Suboxone for only a few months, others might choose to stay on it for longer. One of the greatest benefits of Suboxone is that it stops the symptoms of withdrawal that occur when individuals stops using, allowing him or her to maintain the mental clarity required to continue working, going to school, driving, engaging in therapy, and other daily responsibilities. The effectiveness of Suboxone does not wear off over time, which means that you can use Suboxone for as long as needed.

Does Suboxone interact with other drugs or medications?

As with most prescription medications, you should always let your provider know about all the medications that you might be taking prior to starting on Suboxone. This medication can trigger strong reactions when combined with other opioids such as heroin, oxycodone, codeine, and hydrocodone, as well as alcohol. Additionally, those who are going to be taking Suboxone should refrain from using sedatives, narcotic pain medications, or sleeping pills. Regarding other medications, please speak with your provider to decide on how to proceed before beginning a Suboxone treatment regimen.

What if I no longer wish to take Suboxone? Can I stop or switch to a different medication?

While Suboxone is approved for safe long-term use, beginning a program where you will use Suboxone does not mean that you will have to take it for your entire life. If you and your provider decide that Suboxone is no longer the most effective medication for you, or if you have advanced far enough into your recovery that you are prepared to stop using medications altogether, you can begin to taper off of Suboxone with smaller doses until you have cleared your system of the medication. At that time, you can either start on another medication or begin your fully sober life.

What is the cost of Suboxone treatment?

The treatment provided at Temecula Valley Comprehensive Treatment Center is an incredibly individualized experience that incorporates medications, such as Suboxone, with numerous therapeutic sessions and other services that can benefit an individual. Since your treatment will be created based on your own needs, the cost of your care will be dependent on a number of factors.
