The video discusses the benefits of Suboxone in addiction recovery. Suboxone is an alternative treatment to methadone that has been growing in popularity since its inception. The characteristic that makes Suboxone unique is that it is much less addictive than other options. Suboxone has a small amount of a narcotic in it, but it also contains Naloxone. The Naxolone blocks any “pleasure” the person would normally get from taking a narcotic.
Thus, it can ease narcotic withdrawal symptoms and help the person conquer the addiction without creating a new addiction.
A person who takes Suboxone will not get a “high” feeling from it. Additionally, the individual is likely to have a displeasing reaction if he or she tries to take other narcotics while on Suboxone. That displeasure experience will occur because of the Naloxone. Nothing quite like Suboxone was ever available, and it has been very successful in helping long-term addicted parties to recover.
An addicted person can request a Suboxone from any type of doctor, including a family physician. He or she can also receive it at a Suboxone clinic during recovery. The same individual would only be able to get methadone from a bonafide methadone clinic. Therefore, Suboxone is much more easily accessible.
