Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)
What Is Suboxone?
Suboxone, a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone, is one of the most common types of MAT therapy used to reduce withdrawal symptoms. This treatment tightly binds to the same receptors in the brain as other drugs; therefore, Suboxone blocks intoxication from other drugs, helps with cravings, and reduces withdrawal symptoms. When included in a recovery plan, Suboxone reduces cravings and helps relieve pain, increase calmness, improve overall well-being, reduce stress levels, and help clients engage in treatment.
