At Inland Detox, we treat clients who desire to stop using suboxone. In our experience, those addicted to suboxone were originally prescribed the drug to taper off of heroin, prescription pain medication (opioids) or from benzodiazepines. The Inland Detox treatment philosophy subscribes to the belief that people in general want to and can live better lives without the use of taper medications such as suboxone and methadone. While many people in fact do live better lives in the short term while taking suboxone or methadone, we find that long-term use of either drug leads to addiction, serious withdrawals and occasional use of the illicit or prescription drugs. Suboxone was originally intended to wean people from other substances of abuse. Therefore, Inland Detox does not offer a suboxone maintenance program, rather, we provide suboxone detoxification and stabilization to help enable individuals to life lives free from maintenance drugs as well as drugs of abuse.
At Inland Detox, we treat suboxone addiction and withdrawal seriously. It is a powerful medication that, if taken in large doses or if taken along with alcohol or tranquilizers, may lead to respiratory failure, other organ failure or death. Withdrawal symptoms are severe and typically those that use the medication long-term grow a tolerance for the medication. These are the primary reasons why suboxone is not only dangerous but difficult to stop using. No one should ever experience the withdrawal symptoms of severe suboxone addiction. The withdrawal symptoms include, but are not limited to: flu-like symptoms, sweating, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, depression, anger, mood swings, extreme cravings for the drug, leg pain and associated anxiety. If you’re in a position where you need to detox from suboxone, our suboxone detox center can help you get through the process with as little discomfort as possible in a caring, home-like environment.
Since withdrawals from suboxone are so severe, it’s no wonder many people who are addicted to the prescription drug find themselves doing just about anything to acquire more of it. Many of those addicted to suboxone will employ manipulative behavior to acquire more of it, in increasing dosages from their doctors or from multiple doctors if necessary. Physicians that treat clients for addiction and pain management are trained to recognize patterns of drug-seeking behavior as a warning sign that their clients are becoming or are severely addicted. In the best of worlds, the client and their doctor will work together to manage addiction and/or increased tolerance, find alternative treatment methods or taper off the medication slowly. However, this is in the best of worlds. It is common for those addicted to suboxone to switch to illicit drugs such as heroin to satisfy their cravings if they cannot acquire doses they desire from their doctor or to buy suboxone on the street, on the black market.
At Inland Detox, we understand that addiction to heroin, prescription drugs and drugs like suboxone, intended to help people taper from heroin use, are at some of the highest levels in history. Our approach to our clients is one of compassionate understanding. Our suboxone detox treatment goals are to accurately assess each client admitted to us as individuals to create the best treatment plan possible, to help our clients decrease the severity of their withdrawal symptoms so they find the strength within themselves to complete the detox process and to help our clients to develop an effective discharge plan. Our typical discharge planning process for those who need to detox from suboxone includes intensive outpatient or inpatient suboxone rehab and long-term group therapy and/or individualized therapy. While both group and individual therapy are part of our detox program, they only begin to deal with the underlying causes of your addiction; these services are meant to be a lead-in to either residential addiction treatment or intensive outpatient therapy to fully process and manage the factors that led you to addiction in the first place. Detoxing from suboxone is just the beginning of the suboxone rehab process. At Inland Detox, we provide our clients with long-term, achievable treatment planning so they have the best possible chance of long-term success.
If you or someone you know is addicted to suboxone and are interested in safely detoxing from it, please call Inland Detox today at (888) 739-8296. Our Admissions Advisors will help you understand the admissions process, they can help you with all of your insurance questions and coordinate safe travel to and from our suboxone detox center.
Client assessment is a multi-stage process that begins when you first call and continues during the onsite intake process. When you call Inland Detox you’ll speak to an Admissions Advisor that will help you understand the admissions process. They’ll ask you about your needs and help you determine if Inland Detox is a right fit for you. Upon admission, you’ll be assessed by staff that will identify your immediate needs and they will work with clinical staff to design a custom treatment plan.
Client stabilization is the second goal of effective detox treatment. At this stage of care, our Clinical Director addresses the client’s immediate needs while taking in to account the unique history of each client. Inland Detox staff will coordinate efforts with your primary physician or a local physician if you need to continue a course of prescribed medication or begin a new course of medication in the process of detox.
Our clinical staff members design a custom treatment plan for each client of Inland Detox. Our treatment plans take in to consideration the substance abuse history of each client, their immediate medical, psychological, nutritional and social needs as well. Our understanding of the detox process is that it is the first step towards recovery. As such, our clinical and supportive staff members work in concert to suggest effective care upon discharge. This may include finding appropriate long-term residential care provider or making a transition to outpatient care.
When it’s time for our clients to transition from our detox program to their next level of care, we insure a smooth transition. Our clinical and administrative staff members will coordinate travel from our facility to our client’s next destination. Our goal is to insure that from the time our client’s reach us until the time they transition to their next stage in life, we are with them the entire way.
