Buprenorphine

Why Suboxone?

Buprenorphine – the active ingredient in Suboxone – helps patients enter and stay in treatment by:

  • Relieving withdrawal symptoms
  • Reducing cravings
  • Reducing illicit opioid use
  • Blocking the effects of other opioids
  • Because Buprenorphine is a partial opioid agonist, it binds strongly to the opioid receptors but does not produce the same euphoria – or “high” – that other opioids produce.

At an appropriate dose, Buprenorphine fills most receptors while blocking other opioids from attaching, thereby reducing the need for other opioids.
