Buprenex Treatment

Buprenex treatment is provided for a number of reasons with some of the most common being to treat an opioid addiction, chronic pain, and acute pain. While Buprenex can be used in the medical field to treat chronic and acute pain, this treatment can lead to an opioid addiction. Just as prescription painkillers can be used to minimize pain after injury or chronic pain but lead to a physical and psychological dependency, so can Buprenex. The generic form of Buprenex, and what the opioid medication is more commonly referred to as, is buprenorphine. Suboxone, which is similar to Buprenex, is another brand name for buprenorphine, except Suboxone also has naloxone in it which blocks certain opioid receptors.

Buprenex Addiction

Whether you have been prescribed Buprenex, Suboxone, or buprenorphine, the reality is that eventually you will have to come off the drug. When you do need to come off the drug, you will need Buprenex treatment because you will have a physical dependency to the substance, and perhaps even a psychological dependence that will require a medical detox so that you can come off the drug and addiction treatment so that you can address the core issue of your dependency. If you were never prescribed the drug but used or abused Buprenex, then you will still need Buprenex because it is likely that you have developed an addiction to Buprenex.

Opioid Medications Shouldn’t Be Long-Term

While Buprenex may have its place, the reality is that none of these opioid medications are designed to be taken long-term. When you go on any type of opioid medication, it’s only temporary and you will have to learn how to live without the substance because otherwise, you will continue taking or abusing the drug, or even return back to or begin abusing other opioids like heroin, morphine, etc. When it comes to any opioid medication and opioid addiction, it is a very slippery slope. Opioids, including Buprenex and buprenorphine, are still physically addicting substances.

Why Is Detox Essential During Buprenex Treatment?

Most people who suffer from drug addiction, like yourself, know that they will go through detox during Buprenex treatment because Buprenex leads to a physical dependency. However, some people may not be aware of how physically addicting Buprenex can be since they take it regularly. When they do try to come off the drug, they will notice how physically dependent they have become to the opioid medication because they will go through a physical withdrawal. This is why detox is critical. It can be extremely difficult to kick any opioid addiction, including an opioid medication like Buprenex.

As you will learn at The Watershed Addiction Treatment Programs in Florida and Texas, a medical detoxification (commonly known as a detox), is a way for individuals with a physical and psychological dependence to safely be weaned off all substances in a supervised setting. At a medial detox, a team of medical professionals will monitor you and work to make your withdrawals from all substances, including Buprenex, as comfortable as possible considering the circumstance.

The reality is that detoxing off any drug, especially a physically addictive drug like Buprenex, is going to be tough, but it can be made less uncomfortable when you have a team of medical professionals safely weaning you off the drug. Some people don’t get to go through physical withdrawal in a safe medical detox, and this can be extremely uncomfortable because the symptoms of physical withdrawal can be intense and unpleasant. However, when you go to a medical detox, your health and comfort is of most important.

Receiving treatment for Buprenex addiction at a medical detox is essential for a variety of reasons, with two being the most important. First, this narcotic has changed the physical structure of your brain and body. After prolonged use, your brain and body think that the narcotic is normal and it begins to depend on it for relief and pleasure since it has affected the reward center in your brain. Second, because you are addicted, you begin to crave the Buprenex whenever you go too long without it. Logically, you cannot heal your mental and emotional addiction if your physical body is still dependent on the Buprenex, so this is why getting off Buprenex and all other substances is critical.

What About My Chronic Pain In Rehab?

One issue that keeps many addicts from attending Buprenex treatment at a medical detox and inpatient drug rehab center is that they actually need a narcotic pain killer to help them deal with chronic pain. You should not let the fear of your pain stop you from seeking the help that you need because it is possible to have relief without abusing or being addicted to your pain killer.

Depending on the severity of your pain and your specific situation, there are other options to chronic pain besides narcotic pain killers that you may not have explored. A medical doctor will be able to evaluate your specific situation and provide a nonnarcotic treatment to address your particular condition and specific needs.

With that said, at The Watershed Addiction Treatment Programs, we will address any medical issues you may have, whether they include physical and/or emotional pain. The goal of our leading alcohol and drug rehab center is to treat every aspect of your addiction, which includes the underlying issues that led you to this narcotic – all while making you as comfortable as possible.

However, we cannot begin your Buprenex treatment or deal with any pain you may have if you do not first call The Watershed at 1-800-861-1768. The Watershed has a full continuum of care to treat all types of drug addictions and substance use disorders. We will help you reach sobriety.

Achieving & Maintaining Recovery

Even in a top rated drug rehab center such as ours, The Watershed Addiction Treatment Programs in Florida and Texas, it can be difficult to achieve and maintain sobriety after a Buprenex addiction. This does not mean, though, that it is not achievable; it only means that you will have to work hard at it no matter which inpatient alcohol or drug rehab center you enroll in. The reason this is true is because it does not matter what tools or help you are offered since, in the end, it is still your life and your addiction.

You have to want sobriety. You have to be willing to face your family during your treatment. You have to be willing to cope with the emotional issues that come with Buprenex addiction and recovery. You have to use the tools and accept the help that we are offering at The Watershed. Achieving lasting sobriety from Buprenex may be hard, but it is within reach as long as you are trying to reach it.
