Opiate/Narcotic Dependence: Treatment with Suboxone

Dr. Baruch a Diplomate of ABAM (The American Board of Addiction Medicine) and is ASAM (American Society of Addiction Medicine) certified and has special licensure to prescribe  Suboxone, Subutex, or Buprenorphine for the treatment of Opiate/Narcotic dependence.

Suboxone is a synthetic opiate approved for the treatment of narcotic dependence. It is used to treat heroin, Oxycontin, Percocet, and Vicodin dependence and abuse.

Patients need to be in withdrawal at the time of administration of the first dosage of medication. This is not to make life difficult for the patient but if the Suboxone is given prematurely the patient will go into withdrawal, sometimes severe. For heroin, percocet, vicodin, it is generally ok if the patient has not used in 24 hours. In the case of OxyContin, Methadone, or Fentanyl (patches or lollypops), a longer duration is needed before the Suboxone can be started.

We advise the patient attend NA or AA meetings or some other form of sober support.
