Suboxone in West Palm Beach
Since the early 2000s, Suboxone has been used in the United States to aid patients during opiate withdrawal. Suboxone is an FDA-approved drug that is taken for a short period of time to relieve many of the uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms experienced during drug detox without producing the “high” that makes many drugs so addictive. South Florida Detox Center is pleased to offer Suboxone as part of our personalized substance abuse treatment in West Palm Beach.
Suboxone for Outpatient Treatment
Suboxone was the first FDA-approved medication treatment for the relief of symptoms experienced during opiate withdrawal. FDA approval of this drug has led to its emergence as a successful drug detox solution because it can be prescribed as part of an outpatient addiction recovery program, without the same strict regulation as other types of medication-assisted detox therapies.
- Outpatient addiction recovery treatment has opened the path to recovery to everyone. You do not need to check yourself into an expensive or long-term inpatient program to benefit from the aid provided by Suboxone.
- The use of Suboxone for withdrawals during outpatient treatment allows you to recover from addiction at your own pace and in the comfort of your own home. When you receive your prescription for Suboxone, you will also receive the instructions you need to take it properly. Our goal is to help make the transition to buprenorphine (Suboxone) as comfortable as possible. We will work together in partnership throughout the recovery process. Our staff is there to then help you wean off of buprenorphine (Suboxone) in what will hopefully be a short period of time.
How Suboxone Works
Suboxone is comprised of two separate medications, which work together to ease withdrawal symptoms without creating a new addiction.

- The first ingredient in Suboxone is buprenorphine, which is a partial opioid agonist. This type of drug attaches to the same receptors in your brain as other opiates, tricking the brain into thinking you have taken the drug to which you are addicted. Because the brain thinks it has the drug it needs to function normally, you do not feel severe withdrawal symptoms. Furthermore, buprenorphine fills up the brain’s receptors, meaning even if the original opiate is taken, no effect is felt—this helps to eliminate the urge to relapse.
- Suboxone also contains naloxone, an opioid antagonist. Naloxone ensures that Suboxone is taken correctly. Suboxone must be dissolved under the tongue to produce its beneficial effects; however, if patients try to snort or inject the drug, the naloxone triggers opiate withdrawal symptoms, which also cannot be alleviated by taking the original drug.
