Suboxone saves lives. It is a medication used to treat people who are dependent on opiates and prevents them from overdosing on opiate medications by blocking certain receptors.
Initiation of the medication involves daily to every other day follow up at the start of treatment. Afterwards, weekly sessions may suffice.
Due to the abuse potential of the medication, regular urine drug screens will need to be obtained in order to continue. Also, sobriety from other drugs (including alcohol) is a must.
