Detoxification – meaningful to Sobriety

Suboxone has been hailed as the miracle drug for opiate withdrawals. This orange pill, most often prescribed to cure the painful withdrawal symptoms of heroin addiction, is considered by many to be perfect. It eliminates the cold sweats, nausea, inability to sleep, and body aches that addicts use their days trying to avoid.

However, despite its ability to manager these symptoms. Suboxone carries with it some very harsh withdrawal symptoms that users are not always aware of.

One of the biggest complaints that addicts have after they stop taking Suboxone are the extreme headaches. These headaches have been likened to harsh migraines.

Other withdrawal symptoms that users will experience are yawning, sweating, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, pain, leg restlessness, irritability, anxiety, cold or flu symptoms and insomnia. Suboxone withdrawal can last anywhere from a week to a month, depending on the amount of use.

The above data leads a person to believe that Suboxone is merely pausing the withdrawal symptoms, and what addicts need to focus on is handling the reason behind the heroin addiction, instead of focusing any residual effects of opiate addiction. Instead of relying on Suboxone, addicts need to enroll in an effective drug rehab.

Interestingly, people who are prescribed Suboxone are taking the drug for years, where originally it was developed as an immediate solution only to be used for a week. Now you hear of people being on Suboxone Maintenance. This indicates that addicts are now relying on a drug for years in order to fend off the withdrawal symptoms that in reality would have only lasted a month at most.
