What is Buprenorphine and Vivitrol?  And, is this the right treatment for me?
Buprenorphine (Bunavail, Suboxone, Zubsolv) is an FDA approved medication which significantly reduces opioid cravings during the detox process.  Buprenorphine has helped millions of people to function fully and feel like they did before addiction. Vivitrol is a new drug which can help with alcohol and opioid cravings.

Both treatments are outpatient and require weekly visits for at least the first 12 weeks.  For patients who need more structure, we recommend a methadone treatment program.

All patients are required to have a behavioral health intake and attend a minimum of 2 group sessions per month.

I have pain issues.  Can I be on Buprenorphine?
The FDA has approved Buprenorphine (Bunavail, Suboxone, Zubsolv) treatment for opioid addiction only.  If, however, you believe your narcotic pain treatment is getting out of control and you have developed signs of full-blown addiction, Buprenorphine could be your best treatment.  Buprenorphine will help with both your addiction recovery and make your pain more manageable.
