Suboxone Doctors in New Orleans, LA

New Orleans, city of celebrated jazz musicians, has a checkered history of heroin addiction. Recent pressures caused by the economic upheavals from twin disasters Hurricane Katrina and the British Petroleum offshore oil spill serve to make conditions for many residents more hopeless, and they often turn to drugs for misguided comfort.

 

Suboxone treatment combines the medications buprenorphine and naloxene for maintenance doses to treat opioid dependence. This medication helps lessen the discomfort of withdrawal symptoms as one aspect of comprehensive treatment programs designed to treat patients' drug dependencies with long-term counseling, support, and graduated withdrawals from the physical symptoms of heroin or other opioid addictions.

 

Patients can choose treatment from any of 36 doctors or clinical facilities in New Orleans, depending on many factors such as patients' ability to pay for private treatment, the patient's determination to succeed, strength of dependency, and outlook for successful outpatient therapy. Tulane University Hospital, the Department of Psychiatry, Algiers/Fischer Behavioral Health Center, Central City Mental Health Clinic, and River Oaks Hospital offer resident treatment programs.

 

University Hospital's Supported Detox Program offers help to those New Orleans patients unable to afford private treatment. The oral suboxone drug therapy includes help in managing stress, dealing with personal and financial setbacks, and keeping positive attitudes. Severe detox programs usually last between four--seven days, and the New Orleans Department of Psychiatry helps patients continue outpatient treatment by treating the person instead of just the physical addiction.

 

Patients can choose from private clinics and doctors throughout the French Quarter, the Garden District, and uptown locations for confidentiality. The Here to Help Program offers support services to complement medical, treatments, but does not substitute for a doctor's medical supervision.
