Over the past decade, medication-assisted treatment using buprenorphine or methadone has become an essential component of comprehensive opioid addiction treatment. This trend was in part the result of many opioid-addicted individuals unsuccessfully trying to detox from opiates without sufficient medication assistance. The number one factor in opioid addiction relapse is the emergence of painful opioid withdrawal symptoms.
Without a realistic method for managing withdrawal sickness, many individuals find themselves relapsing due to the overwhelming discomfort and anxiety that comes as opiate withdrawal escalates and peaks.
Fortunately, there are today thousands of qualified physicians able to treat opioid withdrawal using buprenorphine based products.
