24/7 Appointment Scheduling

Proudly serving the state of Ohio, our medication assisted treatment centers provide adults the ability to recover from opioid addiction.

How Does It Work and Is It Safe?

How Subutex Treatment Works

Subutex is a prescription medication that contains buprenorphine hydrochloride. It is commonly used to treat men and women who have been struggling with opioid addiction. Subutex allows people to stop using opioids without experiencing powerful cravings or other distressing withdrawal symptoms.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Subutex in 2002 for use in medication-assisted treatment programs. Through the years, considerable research has documented its safety and effectiveness when used as directed by a licensed healthcare provider.

Subutex is one of the prescription medications that you may receive while participating in medication-assisted treatment at Ohio Comprehensive Treatment Centers. At the beginning of your time with us, you will work with a member of your treatment team to determine which medication is best for you.

Benefits of Treatment & Counseling

The Benefits of Subutex Treatment & Counseling

Medication-assisted treatment at Ohio Comprehensive Treatment Centers addresses the physical, psychological, and behavioral components of addiction.

Patients who take Subutex are able to stop their opioid use without experiencing withdrawal. This allows their bodies to begin to heal from the impact of opioid abuse, and gives them mental clarity to fully engage in therapy.

Depending upon your personalized treatment plan, you may participate in individual, group, and family therapy while you are in our care.

The therapeutic, or counseling, element of treatment will help you to address the issues that contributed to your opioid abuse, and process the impact that opioid addiction has had on your life. Therapy will also help you make the lifestyle changes that will enable you to achieve long-term recovery.

How to Support Your Loved One During Medication-Assisted Treatment: Understand that recovery from opioid addiction is a long process. Your loved one will experience both successes and setbacks. Continue to demonstrate your love, and learn what changes you need to make in order to best support your loved one. Participate in family therapy and support groups. Depending upon the impact that your loved one’s addiction has had on you, consider seeking help from a counselor or therapist.

How You Can Be Successful in a Medication-Assisted Treatment Program: While Subutex can be a helpful tool in the treatment of opioid addiction, patients must understand that recovery is a long journey that requires time and dedication. Patients are encouraged to play an active role in therapy sessions and to work closely with their treatment providers in order to get the most out of their time at Ohio Comprehensive Treatment Centers.
