Suboxone Doctors in Seattle, WA
Chemical dependency challenges the strongest individual and an addiction to opiates presents a formidable situation. Suboxone---a medication developed to smooth the recovery process---provides people fighting addiction hope. Favored over methadone treatment, Suboxone delivers several patient benefits. Seattle residents can work with several doctors and clinics to develop a strong recovery plan.
Suboxone's important ingredients---naloxone and buprenorphine hydrochloride---make the medication much more successful than methadone. Successful treatment programs help patients avoid relapse by limiting cravings and easing the withdrawal process. Methadone---a highly addictive replacement option---can contribute to patient relapse and is heavily regulated.
Suboxone helps keep patients in treatment. It limits withdrawal symptoms and makes abusing the medication unlikely---it produces severe withdrawal symptoms. Furthermore, Suboxone is not as heavily regulated as methadone. Patients can recover using outpatient programs that facilitate a focus on family life and work.
