Suboxone® is a brand-name of buprenorphine, a synthetic opioid medication used in treatment of opioid use disorder, or opioid addiction. Many studies have shown Suboxone to be very effective in stabilizing opioid addiction. For instance, patients on Suboxone typically have much lower rates of relapse. It can quickly reduce withdrawals and cravings, allowing patients to feel better and focus on other important activities and goals.
In a landmark New England Journal of Medicine study, R.E. Johnson showed buprenorphine (Suboxone) and methadone significantly reduced illicit opioid use. Many other studies have similar results, showing Suboxone to help improve many factors related to addiction, such as drug use, withdrawal, employment, health behaviors, and more.
Suboxone is a tablet or film which is dissolved under the tongue or on the inside of the cheek, as well as a new once a month injectable form called Sublocade. This proven treatment is simple and effective, but requires monitoring and proper management, and treatment must be given by a clinic, physician, or other provider with the correct authorization and training.
