WHAT IS BUPHRENORPHINE ?

The purpose of buprenorphine treatment is not to assist in detox or to maintain a person's customary opioid use, but to suppress the debilitating symptoms of cravings and withdrawal.

 

This enables the patient to engage in therapy, counseling and support, which they use to implement positive long-term changes in their lives. It's these changes that develop into the new healthy patterns of behavior necessary to achieve sustained addiction remission.
