Suboxone and Sublocade for Opioid Addiction 


Are you addicted to prescription painkillers or other opioid drugs? The medical doctors and therapists at Compass Health Group can help you overcome your addiction to Vicodin (Hydrocodone), Percocet (oxycodone), Fentanyl, Codeine, OxyContin, and other opioids.

Buprenorphine (brand names: Suboxone, Subutex, Zubsolv) is one of the most effective prescription medications for treating opioid dependence that has become available in the past three decades. It can be used as a temporary treatment to manage withdrawal symptoms and facilitate the transition from addiction to recovery for people who want to end their physical addiction to painkillers, heroin, or other opioid drugs.

Buprenorphine can also be taken over a longer period of time as opioid replacement therapy to relieve cravings, prevent relapse, and allow time to benefit from ongoing outpatient treatment that addresses social and psychological issues intertwined with the addiction.

Other advantages of Buprenorphine

  • It blocks the effects of other opioids (e.g., oxycodone, heroin, etc)

  • Unlike other opioids, it does not produce an intense "high" or suppression of breathing. Accordingly, it is less likely to be abused or cause a fatal overdose.

  • Many patients taking buprenorphine report that in addition to stopping their drug cravings, the medication also helps to reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression.

Buprenorphine is best used in conjunction with ongoing therapy and/or group counseling. Some people stay on buprenorphine therapy for several weeks, while others choose to take it for months or years. The length of buprenorphine treatment varies according to each person's needs.
