What Is Suboxone?
How Does Suboxone Work?
Like other opiate addiction medicines, Suboxone works by blocking receptors in the brain responsible for binding with opioids, producing cravings, and creating withdrawal symptoms. Typically, normal suboxone doses are 4mg/1mg. (It’s a double measurement because Suboxone is made from two separate drugs.)

Suboxone Addiction Treatment
Detox is the first step to overcoming addiction and is best done in a medical facility. Detox helps reduce withdrawal symptoms and helps the body recover from long-term drug use.
Residential care allows for round-the-clock medical assistance in a safe environment. Long-term residential care is available for those that need it. There are also options for people to continue living their day-to-day lives while periodically visiting a rehab center for tests and monitoring. Both forms of residential care are effective for a patient to start breaking through suboxone addiction.
