Suboxone takes longer to detox than other opiates because it is clinically engineered to remain in your opiate receptors to block other opiates from having any effect.
Unfortunately, many addicts buy Suboxone on the streets to detox themselves. They usually end up simply trading one dependency for another*.
Suboxone has become a popular medication to detox from alcohol and other opiate addictions. Depression and insomnia are two of the most common symptoms in suboxone detox. Not only are these conditions uncomfortable, but they can extend the detox period. At Sunrise Detox, we are familiar with all the suboxone withdrawal symptoms and know how to minimize these effects. We see that your detox is as smooth and painless as possible.
*Suboxone used under physician supervision is safe and effective. It is often utilized in detox and may be part of a long-term recovery plan that includes addiction treatment.
Buprenorphine, a synthetic prescription drug, is used in the treatment of opioid dependence and pain management. It is 20 to 30 times more potent than morphine. Buprenorphine is in Suboxone made by Roxane Laboratories and Teva Pharmaceuticals, and Subutex, made by Reckitt Benckiser.
Suboxone is sold on the street illegally. Suboxone abusers typically snort or inject the drug. Common street terms for buprenorphine include “Bupe,” “Subs,” “Subbies,” and “Orange Guys.” Consumption along with alcohol, other opioids, or benzodiazepines can result in loss of consciousness, respiratory distress, or death.
