Buprenorphine addiction is a very dangerous addiction because it is the same thing as being addicted to methadone, pain killers or heroin. Most addicts choose a Suboxone or Subutex method of treatment because like there addiction it is a quick fix. Addicts and alcoholics are always about avoiding pain and finding pleasure, very rarely do they consider a long term buprenorphine addiction treatment center. If you can avoid detox and stay high, that would be their answer. Giving somebody buprenorphine for opiate addiction is no different than giving a crack addict cocaine or a vodka drinker beer. The doctors and psychiatrists prescribing it will tell you I am wrong but ask them how much time they spent on the addiction model in medical school. The alarming answer is none! There is no difference in your loved ones drug dealer than with your loved one’s drug dealing psychiatrists or physician. As a matter of fact, they actually made it so that they become the only dealer, they give you a high powered narcotic and then put a blocker in it called naxolone so that once you buy their dope nobody else’s dope will work, brilliant idea. There is no money in it for a doctor or psychiatrist to refer you to a long term addiction treatment center. They would be losing a customer if they did that.
Suboxone and Subutex should only be used as a temporary tool for bad opiate withdrawal.
Staying on suboxone or subutex for five days in a detox has actually increased the number of opiate addicts being able to stay in opiate detox making it more likely for them to continue on to an inpatient addiction treatment center, however the Suboxone needs to stop there. Many families claim that their loved ones are doing better once they go on a Suboxone or Subutex program. Actually they do for a short time, but these drugs rarely if ever improve the quality of your loved ones life. Many times I have families tell me that their loved one is doing so much better because they are working and are no longer stealing from the house and selling things at the local pawn shop. Is that improvement, maybe, but then you come to find out that the person is a college graduate working at Walmart and still not paying rent to the family that they are still living with at the age of 28. There is nothing wrong with working at Walmart, however if you are not living to your full potential are you really doing great?
The problem is families cling to anything that is better than it was before…
… and like addicts they settle for the easier options. All families do it, it is actually a normal pattern, however it yields abnormal results. In order for your loved one to get well they need an inpatient addiction treatment center. Remember addicts will always go the easy road, when in fact they need to take the longer road of recovery. Short term 28 day treatment has an extremely low success rate, Suboxone and Subutex as well as outpatient has an even lower one. As with most opiate addicts who are serious about recovery and have recovered will tell you that it takes at least three months to rid yourself of having the thought of getting high as your first thought of the day when you wake up in the morning, not sure how 28 days can get around that.
I’m sure by now you have probably talked to so many people giving you all different options and telling you that their way is the best way. I am sure your being told that they have the latest and greatest new way to treat addiction. There is no substitute for a long term addiction treatment center that gets to the cause of why an addict uses or the alcoholic drinks. Unfortunately equine therapy and yoga will not fix that. In choosing the right addiction treatment center it is best to consider long term care, many families think that means outrageous costs, however it does not.
