Suboxone is a wonder drug. Just ask anyone who has been given a second chance at life because of it. Its time everyone recognizes Suboxone for what it is, the new standard of care for heroin, fentanyl and opioid prescription painkillers addiction.
Suboxone is the safest, fastest overall most effective FDA approved medical treatment for prescription opioid pills, heroin and Fentanyl addictions. It helps prevent overdose and overdose deaths by preventing opioid induced respiratory failure and cardiac arrest. It controls cravings and withdrawal symptoms and significantly reduces the risk of relapse, HIV and Hepatitis C. Suboxone helps block the “high” associated with pain pills and heroin abuse. It is safe, effective, well tolerated, and easy to use.
After special training, a physician can be licensed by the Drug Enforcement Administration to prescribe it. Unlike Methadone that is prescribed in a clinic, Suboxone and its new form Sublocade is prescribed in the privacy of a physician’s office. They can be prescribed for take-home use for a month at a time. This means you get the best opioid addiction treatment while living at home. You can continue to work, go to school, and care for your family. Your life is not needlessly disrupted. Suboxone treatment is convenient, effective and safe.

Suboxone is the Best Medical Treatment for Prescription Opioid Pain Pill, Heroin or Fentanyl Addictions.
When both benefits and risks are considered, current scientific evidence shows Suboxone overall superior to Methadone and Vivitrol (intramuscular naltrexone).
Suboxone vs Methadone
Suboxone is as effective as Methadone in preventing opioid cravings and relapses and:
- Far better tolerated by patients;
- Safer, does not cause cardiac problems and is not associated with serious adverse medication interactions;
- Prescribed in the privacy of a physician’s office for up to 1 month at a time not dispensed in government regulated clinics that usually require daily visits.
Suboxone vs Vivitrol
Suboxone is as effective as Vivitrol in preventing opioid cravings and relapses and:
- Patients do not need to detox and be uncomfortably off opioids for 7-10 days before starting treatment;
- Much better tolerated by patients;
- Safer, does not cause liver problems;
- Does not cause severe prolonged addiction withdrawal syndrome (PAWS), a major cause of relapse;
- Can be safely prescribed during pregnancy.
Note: Most importantly is Suboxone’s safety:
- People can overdose on Methadone and the risk of overdose is more than 4 times the risk of overdose on Suboxone.
- Naltrexone is associated with 8 times the risk of overdose after patients stopped using Vivitrol treatment when compared to Suboxone or Methadone treatment.
Studies show that opioid addiction treated by long term Suboxone significantly reduces deaths from all cause and overdose mortality and significantly improved quality-of-life ratings with maintenance treatment.
- Suboxone maintenance is to be superior to detoxification alone in terms of treatment retention, adverse outcomes, and relapse rates;
- Patients on Suboxone reduces of HIV and hepatitis C transmission compared to abstinence-based therapy or detoxification alone;
- Suboxone is also associated with better hepatitis C treatment outcomes.
Suboxone is More Effective and Safer than 28 Day Abstinence Based Treatment Programs
“Graduates” of 28 day abstinence only programs have significant risk overdose and relapse:
- 32 times the risk of overdose death within 4 months of becoming “clean and sober”;
- 8 times the risk of overdose death within the first year;
- 90% relapse in the first year, and many of these die of preventable opioid overdose;
- Yet 90% of all addiction treatment programs remain insistently and irritatingly wed to a failed abstinence-only based 12-step approach.
