Quit Opiates with Medication - Suboxone aka BuprenorphineAddiction to opiates is hard to kick. Heroin, Oxycontin, and other opiates are very easy to get addicted to and then extremely hard to stop. One aspect that makes it hard to quit opiates is because of the withdrawal. It is physically and mentally anguishing, and although it does not last too many days at its prime sickness, those first few days kicking are hard
Many people have heard about methadone, but now there is something different called Suboxone*. You can quit opiates with Suboxone/Buprenorphine or Subutex. Often you will be started on Subutex and switched to Suboxone. Using Suboxone to quit opiates will help you get your life back. Suboxone is a form of medication assisted treatment and it is finally allowing opiate addicts to be treated for addiction inside of a doctor's office instead of having to go to a special clinic. The Suboxone treats addiction as a medical condition, which it is.
Suboxone helps people quit opiates and stay off of them. Doing this, no matter what route you take, is not going to be easy. Even quitting opiates with Suboxone/Buprenorphine is hard. Withdrawal is the beginning of a long process of healing. Make sure to find a good Suboxone doctor to help you quit opiates.
I've met countless addicts, many of them addicted to opiates, and in my experience there are many opiate addicts who have an inherent level of pain, innate, a pain so strong that it drove the person to a drug with the stigma associated with heroin. When people quit opiates, Suboxone, Buprenorphine, Methadone, or cold turkey, that original pain will eventually surface, so be prepared to deal with any darkness that needs light.
Suboxone is a mix of Buprenorphine and Naloxone. Suboxone is often misspelled as Suboxin, Suboxon, Suboxen. Buprenorphine is sometimes just called Bup and also spelled incorrectly as Bupenorfin, Bupenorphin.
