According to the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (“SAMHSA”), medication-assisted treatment is the use of medications with counseling and behavioral therapies to treat substance use disorders and prevent opioid overdose. It is primarily used for the treatment of addiction to opioids such as heroin and prescription painkillers.

Your Buprenorphine, also called Suboxone, is an opioid partial agonist. It produces mild euphoria and respiratory depression, but the effects of buprenorphine are substantially weaker that those caused by opioids. Its effects level off at moderate doses, even without dosage increases. This “ceiling effect” lowers the risk of misuse and dependency. Unlike methadone, which must be administered in highly structured clinic, buprenorphine is the first medication to treat opioid dependency that is prescribed or dispensed in physicians’ offices, significantly increasing treatment access.

Yes. Buprenorphine (Suboxone) was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for clinical use in 2002.

Naltrexone is a medication prescribed by a physician that works by blocking the euphoric and sedative effects of opioids such as heroin. If the patient relapses and uses an opioid drug, naltrexone prevents the feeling of getting high.

Addiction is physical and behavioral. It is a primary, chronic and relapsing brain disease characterized by an individual pathologically pursuing reward and/or relief by substance use and other behaviors. So it makes sense that successful addiction therapy involves both medication and behavioral counseling.
