Suboxone is an opioid treatment medication that can help reduce withdrawal symptoms and drug cravings. It is a highly effective treatment medication that, when combined with therapy, can help individuals struggling with opioid abuse stay sober. However, Suboxone treatment isn’t for everyone. Here are the different qualities that make for a good candidate for Suboxone treatment in Massachusetts.

People Who are Deeply Committed to the Idea of Sobriety

The primary concern for anyone seeking addiction treatment is whether or not they are motivated to stay sober and live a better life. No matter what type of rehab you choose, if you don’t want to get sober or aren’t planning on staying sober long term, treatment may not work. Although everyone has some level of reluctance when it comes to going to rehab, showing a willingness to get help and change your behaviors is essential.

If you are not committed to the idea of getting sober or staying sober, Suboxone can’t help you. It may reduce your cravings and your withdrawal symptoms in the beginning, but no medication can convince you that sobriety is worth it. On the other hand, if you are motivated to work on yourself and attain lasting sobriety, Suboxone treatment may be right for you.

People Who Have Relapsed After Traditional Drug Treatment

Unfortunately, relapse is a common occurrence among people in recovery from opioid addiction. Relapse rates for addiction are comparable to those of other chronic illnesses like asthma and hypertension. Between 40-60% of people relapse at least once.[1]

Usually, people who relapse return to treatment. However, if you’re someone who has been to treatment one or more times and has tried all of the standard treatment methods, Suboxone treatment in Massachusetts may be the next step.

Suboxone treatment programs combine medication-assisted treatment (MAT) with a comprehensive treatment approach consisting of counseling, behavioral therapy, and peer support. This method addresses the psychological, social, and physical effects of opioid addiction, providing for a “whole-person” treatment approach that is now the gold standard in addiction treatment today.
