This medication is used to help recovery from addiction to opiates. Thiscan be very helpful. We do caution prospective patients that Suboxone is not prescribed as a stand-alone approach. Rather, we utilize a more inclusive model that is known to boost the chances for recovery. This includes working with the Primary Care Physician, counseling, group work, life style changes (exercise, social circles, etc), family support (where appropriate), and all such other “recovery assets” as may lead to the goals you have.
