As is typical with any type of chemical dependency it can be very difficult to overcome it without some sort of professional help. Opioid use disorder brings with it an even greater degree of difficulty because it continues effecting the brain for extended periods of time, even after someone’s last use. The best way we’ve found for treating opioid use disorder is through using suboxone as part of a medication-assisted treatment plan, available at our suboxone clinics Maryland.

What Happens When Someone Doesn’t Use Their Regular Opiate?

When someone is used to taking an opiate with regular frequency, whether it is a prescription painkiller or heroin, the body becomes tolerant and develops a dependency on it. If a person hasn’t used their opiate of choice, the body starts going through withdrawal symptoms which includes body aches, chills, pain, anxiety, depression, runny nose, nausea, vomiting, sweating and much more. The symptoms someone experiences when opiates aren’t used is what causes many people to run back to using again.

Is Medication-Assisted Treatment Effective for Opioid Use Disorder?

At our suboxone clinics Maryland, we stand behind using MAT for opioid use disorder. We have seen people who have tried and failed to become clean with other types of treatment, but with our intensive outpatient program (IOP) using MAT and suboxone, our patients have a better chance at recovering. MAT services at our clinics are facilitated either in person or through our telemedicine program which brings our program directly to the people who need it most, but otherwise may not be able to visit our local clinic.
