Suboxone treatment is used to treated those with opioid addiction, a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. Dr. John V. Kelly’s medical facility ensures that the individual in need of opioid addiction treatment will have the proper medical supervision during the detox phase. The use of Suboxone is designated for adults and adolescents that are 16 years of age or older.
The use of Suboxone as maintenance therapy is ideally for candidates who use to be on drugs and would like to change their lifestyle and wants to live a life without the drug addictions he or she previously faced. Due to it’s lower potential in addiction, it tends to work relatively well at eliminating the drug addiction that most patients were accustom to.
Side effect of Suboxone treatment include: cold, flu-like symptoms, headaches, sweating, insomnia, nausea, mood swings, pain and restlessness. This is why we recommend this treatment to be carefully supervised by a responsible individual while the individual is undergoing the detox phase. Please note that Suboxone is capable of causing respiratory depression if it’s combined with any other depressants.
