Suboxone is a medication used to treat opiate addiction. It works by reducing cravings and eliminating withdrawal symptoms. Suboxone contains a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone. Buprenorphine is a partial opioid receptor agonist. It relieves withdrawal symptoms by partially stimulating brain receptors responsive to opiates. Naloxone is an opioid receptor antagonist. The receptor antagonists block their target receptors, preventing opiate-induced stimulation. Naloxone is a “safety switch” designed to prevent any possible abuse of Suboxone.
Buprenorphine (the key active component of Suboxone) is the same type of medication as Methadone. Naloxone (the second active component) is a safety switch to prevent the abuse of Buprenorphine. Most patients prefer Suboxone to Methadone because Suboxone intake does not require constant supervision. Patients can be prescribed a monthly supply of Suboxone without the need for a daily visit. In contrast, Methadone replacement therapy requires daily visits to the clinic. Additionally, Suboxone is less addictive than Methadone; it also has fewer side effects and a smaller risk of a fatal overdose.
Each patient responds differently to the therapy; therefore, there is no definite answer to this question. Eventually, a plan is set to gradually taper down Suboxone and get off this medication completely. This is done when it is comfortable for the patient to do so, and they feel they have made sufficient treatment and life progress to justify reducing or stopping the medication.
Buprenorphine is a partial opiate receptor agonist. It stimulates the same brain receptors as other opiates. This partial stimulation is sufficient to take away cravings and withdrawal symptoms, but it is insufficient to induce euphoria. Buprenorphine is addictive; however, it is less addictive than other opiates, including Methadone; it is easier to tapper down than Methadone due to less severe withdrawal symptoms.
Group counseling sessions are a therapeutic tool that can powerfully enhance treatment while aiding in clients’ growth. During psychoeducational group counseling sessions, clients learn coping skills, trigger response strategies, and other lifesaving information. During process groups, clients can engage with their peers, their counselor, and the therapeutic process in a deep and meaningful way.
Engagement in counseling has many benefits including; increased motivation, self-discovery, problem resolution, improved interpersonal relationships, and an improved mood.
One therapeutic approach a counselor might choose to use when working with a client who has low motivation is Motivation Enhancement Therapy (MET). This form of therapy works by identifying the discrepancy between where a client currently is (current behaviors) versus where they want to be (goal behaviors).
Traditional “talk therapy”, or psychoanalysis is often helpful to clients who are not completely sure what’s wrong but know they have some issues they need to work out. Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) is a unique approach that focuses on the interaction between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
Openly exploring repeating behavior patterns like a self-sabotaging tendency is the first step towards their resolution. Counseling can help clients in many ways.
