Suboxone contains a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is an opioid medication, sometimes called a narcotic. Naloxone blocks the effects of opioid medication, including pain relief or feelings of well-being that can lead to opioid abuse. It is used to treat opiate addiction and dependence. Suboxone, along with treatment from Changing Lives at Home Mental Health, Inc. allows better adherence to using opiates. Suboxone is recommended to be only used in accordance with a comprehensive treatment program. The drug can produce dependence in users, so it’s important that all taking the medication remain under professional medical supervision, which CLHMHS provides.
