What is Suboxone?
Suboxone is a prescription medicine, often in film form, that helps treat opioid dependence. It's main active ingredients consist of Buprenorphine and Naloxone. The medication is normally used in Medication Assisted Treatment by doctors qualified under the Drug Addiction Treatment Act.
Some major benefits of the medication is that the user may continue to treat themselves from the comfort of their own home. They are required to be under the supervision of a doctor and must have follow-up visits while in treatment.
