What is Suboxone® treatment management ?

Suboxone treatment management at Northwest Winds Recovery uses medications to make it easier to break an addiction to opioids, medicines sometimes prescribed for pain relief.

Is Suboxone treatment management right for me?

Is Suboxone® treatment right for me?

To determine if Suboxone treatment is right for you, the Northwest Winds Recovery team discusses your medical history, lifestyle, medication regimen, symptoms, and more. They complete a comprehensive mental health evaluation to determine which condition you may have and how severe it is before personalizing your treatment plan.

What can I expect during Suboxone® treatment management ?

Suboxone treatment often involves taking a prescription medication in the form of a sublingual film, which is a film you dissolve underneath your tongue. It’s important to use this medicine exactly as instructed by your specialist.

When taking Suboxone, you’ll likely notice fewer cravings for opioids without intense withdrawal symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, fatigue, or seizures.

When it’s time, your provider helps you taper off the medication gradually to minimize your risk of bothersome symptoms or substance misuse relapse.

You might undergo the following treatments with the help of the Northwest Winds Recovery team:

Your mental health specialist tailors each treatment to your needs and follows up with you regularly to ensure long-lasting success. They might meet with you in person or virtually via telehealth once weekly or as needed.
