Proudly serving the Anchorage, Alaska community, our suboxone clinic provides adults struggling with addiction the ability to recover from heroin, oxycodone, Percocet, and other opiates.

How do I know if Suboxone is right for me?

Suboxone is a safe option for individuals who are struggling with an addiction to opioids. If you or someone you love is struggling with an addiction to opioids, please speak with your healthcare provider about taking part in a medication-assisted treatment program that utilizes Suboxone in order to provide relief from the physical symptoms of withdrawal. Since there are multiple treatment options available, it is important to work closely with a medical professional in order to determine the appropriate route of treatment based on your individual needs.

Can I become addicted to Suboxone?

Although Suboxone is a safe treatment option when taken as prescribed under the supervision of a medical professional, there is risk for tolerance and addiction if it is abused. Suboxone utilizes naloxone and buprenorphine as its active ingredients to provide patients with relief from the symptoms of withdrawal. Interacting with the same receptors in the brain that are typically activated by opioids, Suboxone eliminates cravings for additional opioid use while diminishing symptoms of withdrawal. Suboxone will not produce a euphoric high when consumed, which allows patients to play an active role in daily activities such as work, school, and their treatment.

Will Suboxone show up on a drug screening?

Suboxone will not cause individuals to test positive on a standard drug screen as a specific test is required in order to detect buprenorphine in the system. Suboxone is legal to take when prescribed by a medical professional within a licensed medication-assisted treatment program.

How long will I need to be on Suboxone?

Although extensive clinical research has confirmed that Suboxone is safe to take long-term, individuals are not required to do so unless instructed by their physician. While some patients will only utilize Suboxone short-term, others may remain on it for maintenance purposes for years. Since Suboxone’s effectiveness will not decrease over time, patients are able to continue taking it as long as necessary. Suboxone provides patients with relief from withdrawal symptoms while allowing them to play an active role in their daily obligations including progressing in treatment.

Does Suboxone interact with other drugs or medications?

Because Suboxone can negatively interact with other medications, it is important to openly discuss the use of other substances, prescriptions, and/or over-the-counter medications with your physician prior to incorporating Suboxone into your treatment plan. Patients who are taking Suboxone should refrain from using opiates and alcohol due to the dangerous effects that can occur. Please consult with your physician prior to taking other medications once Suboxone treatment has begun.

What if I no longer wish to take Suboxone? Can I stop or switch to a different medication?

Although Suboxone is approved for long-term use, patients who begin treatment on this medication are not required to continue taking it long-term. Should you and your healthcare provider determine that Suboxone is no longer appropriate based on your needs, you can safely wean off of Suboxone under the guidance of your physician. Depending on your individual goals, you may either transition onto a different medication or continue opioid-free without the aid of medication.

What is the cost of Suboxone treatment?

The treatment available through Anchorage Treatment Solutions is highly individualized based on the requirements of each patient. Because a variety of factors can determine the final cost of care, please contact one of our intake coordinators to learn more about the treatment available and the cost of care.
