If you are looking for every possible option to bring your addiction to an end, then explore the benefits of Buprenorphine treatment to combat your dependency on drugs and alcohol.
We offer comprehensive programs and therapy that include our drug detox center and a full treatment plan that takes you from severe addiction to full recovery and wellness.

Buprenorphine Treatment for Opioid Addiction
Buprenorphine is a long-acting opioid drug used to replace the shorter-acting opioids that you may be addicted to, such as heroin, oxycodone, fentanyl or hydromorphone. Long-acting means that the drug acts more slowly in the body, for a more extended period. The effects of buprenorphine last for 24 to 36 hours. You may also use short-acting Buprenorphine to avoid severe withdrawal symptoms.
When taken at the correct dose, buprenorphine prevents withdrawal symptoms and reduces drug cravings without causing you to feel high or sleepy. This lowers the harms associated with opioid misuse and gives you a chance to stabilize your life. This treatment is known as withdrawal management.
How Does Buprenorphine Treatment Work?
Buprenorphine activates the brain’s opioid receptors. Therefore, it limits the ability to get “high” or feel euphoria when you take any type of opioids. It blocks the opioid while reducing withdrawal symptoms and cravings at the same time.
If the medication can activate your brain’s opioid receptors, then the opioid drug is powerless. Over time, your body will become less dependent on the opioid and more dependent on its own opioid production once again. And best of all, there are no severe side effects to using the drug.
Keep in mind that you can use a Buprenorphine patch if you show symptoms of discomfort, illness, or other withdrawal symptoms during detox.
