DO YOU SUFFER FROM A SUBSTANCE USE DISORDER, INCLUDING THE USE OF OPIOIDS OR ALCOHOL? OUR COMPASSIONATE PROVIDERS CAN HELP YOU IN A DISCRETE, PRIVATE OFFICE ENVIRONMENT.
WHAT IS OPIOID USE DISORDER?
Opioid use disorder is a chronic disease, like heart disease or diabetes that derives from the overuse or tolerance of opioids such as morphine, hydrocodone, oxycodone, fentanyl, or heroin. A chronic disease is a medical condition for life. It cannot be cured, but it can be managed.
A person with addiction can regain a healthy, productive life. But if you are like most people, you cannot walk away from addiction on your own. Treatment with the care of medical professionals and substance abuse treatment providers can help. Treatment helps gain remission. It helps you get through withdrawal and cope with cravings. Treatment also helps you change addictive thinking into nonaddictive, healthful patterns. It can help you move away from other harmful behaviors, too, such as drinking alcohol or abusing other drugs besides the problem opioid.

The initiation of BUPRENORPHINE is specific to the last dose of other opioids and must be directed by the prescriber. If taken inappropriately. BUPRENORPHINE may cause unwanted effects, such as nausea, anxiety, trouble sleeping, thoughts of suicide, restlessness, mental/mood changes, sweating, diarrhea, muscle aches, watery eyes, or runny nose.
