Identify and Understand Opioid Dependence

Understanding opioid dependence —physical addiction to prescription painkillers and heroin—affects many people in the US. Unfortunately, many people who struggle with opioid dependence may be reluctant to ask for help because of the stigma attached to the notion of “drug dependence.”

Opioid dependence is a complex health condition with many elements that are caused or made worse by continued opioid use. Key elements include social, psychological, and biological components. Opioid dependence can occur as the brain adapts to the regular use of opioids over time. People who are opioid dependent may continue using opioids despite experiencing harmful consequences.

You are not alone

Opioid dependence is a chronic disease that can affect anyone. It could be a friend, a co-worker, a spouse, a brother, a sister, or a parent.

Planning Your Treatment

It is possible to get on the path to recovery and there are many different treatment options.

Here are some of the types of treatment available:

  • Counseling the psychological and behavioral aspects of addiction

  • In-patient treatment programs structured programs in hospitals and residential treatment centers that offer around-the-clock support

  • Twelve step programs on a set of guiding principles that outline a course of action to work towards recovery from addiction

  • In-office medication treatment—prescription medications are used to help suppress withdrawal symptoms and decrease cravings, along with counseling and other support

One type of medication-assisted treatment is SUBOXONE Film, with counseling and psychosocial support. Together with a doctor who is qualified to treat opioid dependence, SUBOXONE Film may help you—or someone you care about manage opioid dependence.

Our physicians are experts in leveraging the Suboxone treatment process, and will clearly layout a plan with milestones in order for you to track your progress.

Treatment is a journey, and the destination is your lasting sobriety. Our physcians are dedicated to helping you achieve lasting change in your life.

Treatment with SUBOXONE at Wellness MD is done in three steps:

  1. Induction—you begin your treatment under the supervision of a doctor. For your first dose, you must be in a moderate state of withdrawal. You work with your doctor to reach a dose of SUBOXONE Film that works for you.
  2. Maintenance—your doctor will transition you to the maintenance phase when you are no longer experiencing withdrawal symptoms, have minimal to no side effects, and have no uncontrollable cravings.
  3. Medical taper—The decision to discontinue therapy with SUBOXONE Film after a period of maintenance should be made as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. It is important that you work with your doctor to determine when the time is right to slowly lower your dose, taking care to minimize withdrawal symptoms
