Pain is often a reason people become subject to opioid addiction. Suboxone is a great way to manage pain without the high risk of abuse. This is key to those who are struggling with pain management.
Suboxone does not produce a high and only allows for someone to feel normal. These non addictive qualities make Suboxone such an effective method of overcoming addiction.
Suboxone makes the brain produce the same reaction that it would while taking drugs. This reduces withdrawal symptoms and allows for an individual to change harmful habits into healthy ones.
Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the general term for using less problematic medicines to help one overcome a substance use disorder. They are most commonly used to treat opioid use disorders and alcohol use disorders. By giving those addicted to drugs less addicted and euphoric drugs, they can more easily overcome their addictions.
MAT drugs are FDA approved and deemed both safe and effective in treating substance use disorders. They are a recommended course of treatment for moderate to severe opioid use disorders and occasionally severe alcohol use disorders.
Abstinence works for some. But with how substance use disorders change the mind, it is very hard for most to get clean, especially for opioid users. These MAT drugs are much less addictive and euphoric, helping those addicted with cravings and living a productive life. As one gets accustomed to a life without extreme highs, they can move away from substance-using behavior. As behaviors change, dosages can be slowly lowered so that the patient is eventually completely drug-free.
Addiction recovery is a long-term goal and everyone involved needs to be patient. Addiction and opioid use disorder is a life threatening condition that is more difficult to recover from than anyone without a history of opioid addiction could imagine. There is a reason your loved one has been struggling to get clean time after time. MAT drugs help those with intense inescapable cravings more easily avoid relapse, especially during the first 12 to 18 months of recovery.
