Suboxone — A More Sophisticated Medication to Help Opiate Addicts

by Dr. Rich on December 13, 2011

I recently blogged about Buprenorphine, a medication that can help get heroin and other opiate addicts through detox and heroin withdrawal.

Today, I’m writing about another medication, Suboxone. Suboxone contains Buprenorphine, but it also contains another ingredient that helps with the process of overcoming addiction. And research shows that it can help with relapse prevention over the longer term, as well as withdrawal in the short term. (Source: About.com Addictions)
