Opioid withdrawal can be brutal, as it tends to feel like a bad case of the flu paired with panic attacks and anxiety. This painful detox can cause even the most dedicated recoverees to relapse. Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) with medications such as Suboxone can be effective because they reduce cravings and withdrawal effects from opioids. Suboxone is an effective treatment for opioid use disorder. In fact, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) lists Suboxone as one of the preferred medical treatments for opioid use disorder. At Fireside Recovery, we are a Suboxone friendly sober living home to help men finally recover and get their lives back.
What is Suboxone?
Suboxone is a prescription medication that helps people endure opioid detox and stabilizes them for sober living. Suboxone contains a combination of buprenorphine and naloxone that help diminish the effects of physical dependency on opioids, increase safety in case of overdose, and lowers the potential for misuse. Suboxone is FDA-approved as a treatment to help one stay sober, but is recommended to be taken in a supervised environment, such as a sober living house.
Suboxone Friendly Sober Living
At Fireside Recovery, we accept and work with men that are on medications such as Suboxone, Vivitrol, and Subutex. Unlike many sober living homes, Fireside is able to provide medication-assisted treatment because we are equipped to handle the medical side of long-term recovery. We have a house psychiatrist to assess each client and provide a smooth continuum of care for ongoing med-management. Fireside monitors dosing to ensure compliance with the recommending treatment plan. We believe that under the direct supervision of a medical professional, Suboxone and other medications can be extremely helpful in an individual’s recovery process.
Fireside is owned and managed by people who have found successful recovery through sober living housing and want to help others on their path to freedom from addiction. Our goal is to support our residents as they rediscover their purpose and form relationships with the community. If you or a loved one is struggling with addiction, please contact us to see if Suboxone friendly sober living is right for you. Escape the fire and join us on your journey to recovery.
