When someone is struggling with an opioid addiction the withdrawal symptoms can be extremely serious. That’s where medication assisted treatment helps. To help avoid serious withdrawal symptoms the addict can be prescribed medication such as buprenorphine to help feel less withdrawal symptoms. This medication also helps reduce cravings and urges to use opioids. These two positive uses is what makes buprenorphine so effective when treating an opioid addiction.
When prescribed by a licensed doctor, naltrexone is often also prescribed along with buprenorphine. This helps to prevent the abuse of buprenorphine. The way naltrexone helps prevent the abuse of buprenorphine is naltrexone can induce withdrawal symptoms if buprenorphine is injected or used with another opioid. Combining these two medications has proven to be very effective during a medication assisted treatment program.
