Many opiates addicts like you may understand that Buprenorphine is an approved drug to help you through opioid withdrawal but what you may forget is that Buprenorphine detox comes with this treatment. What you also may not know is you might have to go through two different forms of Buprenorphine detox because there are two FDA approved drugs in this family that are used to help the “hard drug” withdrawal process. No matter if you use one or both of the drugs that are approved to aid in opiates withdrawal, one thing is definite; your detox will be easier than any other opiates detox you would have went through without aid.
Sometimes, though, you need a little extra comfort during your Buprenorphine detox. Sometimes, you need more privacy from other patients and the outside world during your Buprenorphine detox. Cliffside Malibu can offer you these things because we are an exclusive luxury rehabilitation center located on the beautiful beaches of Malibu California. With limited enrollment and no media coverage, you can be assured that your time at Cliffside Malibu is completely secure. Not all drug treatment programs offer this privacy level. If you would like to go through a controlled Buprenorphine withdrawal in this type of environment, please call Cliffside Malibu at 1-800-501-1988.
Subutex Detox Is Buprenorphine Detox
Subutex is one of the FDA approved drugs to help alleviate the withdrawal symptoms when you stop using hard opiates. Therefore, when you hear about Buprenorphine detox, Subutex detox falls into the same category. In fact, the only active ingredient in Subutex is Buprenorphine, which is a partial opiate used to block your opioid receptors. While there are many other drugs in the Buprenorphine family, you will most likely only hear about Subutex and suboxone (which we will discuss later). The only issue with Subutex, as already mentioned, is that it only contains Buprenorphine. This means that Subutex can be abused and potentially addictive. This is why Buprenorphine detox is very crucial so that you are not spending the rest of your life taking a Buprenorphine derived drug.
We understand the risks associated with some Buprenorphine derived drugs and this is why at Cliffside Malibu drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility, your Buprenorphine detox is a main priority once your intake of it has stabilized, meaning you are no longer experiencing withdrawal symptom of or cravings for your original drug. Moreover, we will also focus on addressing the other aspects of your addiction with intensive therapies and luxury amenities. You can learn more about the Subutex side of Buprenorphine detox by calling Cliffside Malibu at 1-800-501-1988.
Buprenorphine Detox Also Refers To Suboxone
The other FDA approved drug that you may come across in your Buprenorphine detox is named Suboxone. Just as Subutex, it is derived from Buprenorphine, but there is one small difference. Suboxone is combined with the drug Naloxone, so as to make this partial opiate non-abuse-able. The Naloxone acts as a deactivator, meaning if you abuse any other opiates while using this drug, you will not feel their affects nor will you feel the affects of the suboxone if you tried to inject it. Although suboxone is safe to take, especially compared to its sister medicine, Subutex, it is still crucial to go through Buprenorphine detox so that you can be completely free of all drugs.
While we are all about your comfort during your stay at Cliffside Malibu, our end goal is to have you completely independent from all drugs once you finish your drug rehab. This means that you need to go through Buprenorphine detox in order to say that you do not need any drugs. To that you are in complete recovery, you will go through a variety of therapeutic treatments as you are going through your detox as this is the only way to heal your entire addiction. If you want completer freedom from all opiates in your life, please call Cliffside Malibu at 1-800-501-1988.
This Withdrawal Can Be Gradual
Even if you understand why and how Buprenorphine is used, you may still be scared of going through Buprenorphine detox. This is because of how many sources portray this part of rehabilitation. Believe it or not, this type of medically controlled withdrawal may be the easiest part of your recovery process. This is because your doctor is strictly controlling your intake of Buprenorphine so that you do not feel withdrawal symptoms from your original opiates and he/she is also controlling your intake when you are going through Buprenorphine detox. What this means is that the doctor/rehab center can adjust your medication just enough, depending on if you are feeling withdrawal symptoms or not, throughout the reduction of Buprenorphine. Essentially, you may feel very little or no withdrawal symptoms at all during your detox.
To top it all off, at Cliffside Malibu, any emotional or physical distress you may feel during your Buprenorphine detox can be greatly lessened because we offer you many amenities. At Cliffside Malibu, you are almost in a spa like environment because there is massage therapy, acupuncture, a gourmet chef, luxury beds, and so much more. These luxuries are not offered at most rehabs.
Of Course, Buprenorphine Detox Needs Adjunct Therapy
The entire purpose of using Buprenorphine is to ease the pains associated with opiate withdrawal. However, once you have switched over to this type of treatment and Buprenorphine detox is in your future, it is no different than any other type of detox in that it does require adjunct therapies to be successful. While it is true that your Buprenorphine treatment will ease the physical and emotional stress of recovering from an opiate addiction, if you do not treat the mental addiction, once you have completed your Buprenorphine detox, you would be back at square one, facing an opiate addiction.
At Cliffside Malibu, we understand that your treatment needs to extend beyond your Buprenorphine detox. We also understand that your treatments should focus on changing and healing you as a whole, not parts of you. This is why you will receive any treatment you need to be fully independent from in mind and body from drugs.
