Why Short-Term Suboxone Stabilization?
Suboxone has been proven to be an effective treatment for opioid addiction when used as a short-term solution during medically-assisted withdrawal treatment. Suboxone can be extremely important during the detoxification stage since one might begin to experience withdrawal symptoms within just a few hours of opiate use. When given the appropriate dose at the right time, Suboxone can suppress withdrawal symptoms. Someone detoxifying from opiates will typically be administered the medication for three to four days, or up to two weeks or longer, depending on their recovery progress and doctor’s orders.
