Buprenorphine - Opioid Addiction Treatment

Buprenorphine

Buprenorphine is the active ingredient in Suboxone®, Subutex®,  etc and it itself is an opioid.  But unlike opioid prescription painkillers, methadone and heroin, which are full opioid agonists, buprenorphine is apartial opioid agonist. The buprenorphine attaches to the same receptors in the brain that other opioids attach to, but it's maximal effects are less than those of full agonists. Buprenorphine produces sufficient agonist effect to enable opioid-dependent individuals to discontinue the misuse of opioids and function normally without experiencing withdrawal symptoms, impairment or cravings. With appropriate dedication, motivation, counseling and behavioral therapy, buprenorphine treatment can allow for successful tapering of dose and, ultimately, ENDING opioid dependence. In addition, buprenorphine has been shown to carry a lower risk of abuse, addiction, and side effects compared to full opioid agonists.

A number of clinical trials have established that buprenorphine is effective for:

- Reducing the risk of overdose

- Alleviating symptoms of opioid withdrawal

- Reducing cravings for opioids 

- Reducing opioid misuse

- Blocking the effects of other opioids

- Helping patients stay in treatment

- Allowing patients to regain control over their lives
