While individuals are commonly addicted to drugs such as heroin, opiates, and prescription drugs, they may also need assistance recovering from Suboxone to achieve a fully recovered life. This drug has been available for more than a decade and is used for the treatment of opiate dependence and addiction.
Suboxone is effective in preventing the symptoms of withdrawal from heroin and opiates. Users who fall addicted to the drug can find it difficult to cease or limit use. It can remain attached to individuals for a long period of time.
Suboxone addiction is treated at Artemis Hill Recovery within a controlled and supervised environment. The withdrawal period can last up to 10 days, with symptoms that include:
